SOURCE: Non working brake lights in Nissan Altima

make sure the button is working, it may need to be replaced. with your foot off the brake peddle, it is on upper part of brake peddle arm. when you let off brake peddle it pushes button in to shut lights off. it may just be stuck in, spray a little lubracant on it if it's stuck and push in manually several times to loosen.

SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing

Terry: It's obvious I'm not dealing with a USA spec car, however, I had lived in the U.S. Virgin Islands and am quite familiar with the Bluebirds of the past. Nissan still uses the same basic circuitry designs as far as what circuits serve what. Here are the circuits to look at.
All lights which are switched on by the headlight switch. This includes the Cigarette lighter back light, radio light power supply, automatics have shifter back lighting as well as your climate controls and all dash lights. Your side marker lights are also served by this circuit. The dash lights go through a type of dimmer switch which essentially creates resistance, thus dimming the lights. Sometimes the clocks are tied into the circuits. Start with the simple things first and work your way in. There is a type of fuse called a circuit breaker which will plug into the fuse block in place of the fuse.
Get the same rating as the one you pulled out. DO NOT USE A JUMPER WIRE AND LET THE SMOKE OUT OF THE WIRES!
If the circuit breaker blows immediately, you have a serious short!
With the circuit breaker, if the short is not real bad, the lights will burn for a little bit before the breaker blows. Once it cools, it will close and the circuit will operate again. While it is in operation, you look for the lights that operate and the ones that don't. Check the ones that don't. Although it's rare for a bulb to cause a fuse to blow, it does happen.
I often find problems are due to radio installations or other types of installations. So if you don't have a factory radio or if you have some type of accessory which has been installed in the console or dash, this would be a prime suspect. Nissan's are not really known for electrical problems unless they have been in collisions. If your car has been in a collision, look in the area where it was hit. You may find a pinched wire or damaged insulation. I am not quite sure what model your car would compare to in reference to a US car.
The Bluebird's were 510's. Are the Maxima's now? What ever model it is, unless it has no sister model imported to the
USA, the odds are that the circuits are going to be real close if not identical! I hope I have been of some assistance. Let me know.

SOURCE: '97 nissan altima, brake lights not working, wire

Lets keep it simple if the wiring harness is in good condition lets not look at that... first check your fuse if the fuse is good... check for power... if you have power coming and going from the fuse then check your brake switch ( located under the dash) attached to brake pedal. Please make sure your light bulbs are both good also. If your brake light switch is good and you have tried everything else it is either going to be in your 4 way switch or wiring harness

Nissan does not use inline fuse. You are looking for fuse number 34 (red 10 amp fuse). It is located under the hood between the engine and battery. Possibly marked "ILL"

SOURCE: I have a 2003 nissan xterra. The fuse keeps

If you have the money you should take your car to the mechanic as soon as possible and have them check the wiring behind and under your head lights. Or have them check your main electrical harness that contains your fuse box. the main bulk of wires runs on the right side of the engine by your head light. I had the exact same problem in my 03 x-terra. By the time I took my car in (about 3 months after intial problem stared) my entire electrical harness was burnt up and melted. I am looking at a bill $1600-$2000 to fix the problem. I can't drive my car cause it could catch on fire. please look at that very soon. I couldn't find the problem either till I took it in.

The one fuse keeps burning out why?


There's either a power drain on that circuit or a short circuit. It could also be a loose wire or 'bad earth' around the tail lights.
It may be nothing more than a 'bad earth' or loose power wire touching earth around the tail lights.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

98 chevy silverado:


There is a short in the electrical circuit that is protected by the fuse. If this fuse protects the tail lamps then there is s short in the wireing from the fuse to the tail lamps, the insulation on the wires could be could be broken and shorting againt the bodywork.
If you cannot find the fault, the quickest solution is to rewire the faulty circuit and bypass the faulty wiring.
If you cannot DIY then you need an auto electrican to find the fault and fix the problem.

Tail light and dash lights do not operate. immediately blows fuse when light switch is turned on. brake lights work. tail lamp sockets appear in good shape. tail lamp wire up to light switch has power. as...


There is only one circuit. You have to trace the wire from the fuse to find the short. The wire runs to all of the parking and tail lamps as well as the instrument panel, thru the dimmer. If you find connectors along the way, disconnect them to find out if the short is beyond or behind the connector, using an ohmmeter.

My 2005 nissan altima has both tail lights out, the break lights work and i searched all over for the tail light fuse, but i cannot seem to find it. help?.


if its like most nissan s you have to remove the glovebox and the fuse box is behind it, the main box can also be located beside your battery, if both tail light blow it will, blow a fuse, so check your lights regular to save you the hassle of looking for fuses.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
