Change the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. Go down to the parts store and ask for a new brake liight switch for your Pathfinder and look up under the dash where the brake pedal arm goes and you will see the switch. You will need to unplug the wires to your old one and disconnect it and install the new one the same way. It is pretty much self adjusting once the brake pedal is released. If the brake light does not go out adjust the switch pin to be longer so it will depress when the pedal is released

HEY! It is as simple as a blown fuse. In the fusebox on the lower left side of the driver's seat pull off the cover to the storage box and behind is the fuse box. The storage box reverse side has the labeling for the fuse location. Get yourself a fuse tester or just guess:) and use one of the spare fuses stored in the fuse box area. My problem was the exact same and it was a blown fuse for the "STOP LIGHT" which is the brake/taillights. Towing a boat I managed to get the lights on the trailer wet and shorted them out. Viola! Changed the fuse and it not only started but I could actually shift. Has been fine ever since. I now keep a set of varied fuses of the correct mini size in my glove compartment. Good Luck and I hope this helps.--Linda

Have you had it checked at the shop? if it's still under warrenty take it to the dealer, it could be a loose conection or a loose brake light switch or needs to be adjusted as the plastic shaft has worn out from use. If it's not under warrenty post here and I will replay, also do you have a volt meter to test this with?

sounds like you have a bad neutral safety switch. it's usually attached to your brake pedal. i'm not sure on a newer maxima but check underneath. here's what it looks like http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/parts/partsProduct.jsp?itemIdentifier=124168_0_0_&skuDescription=Duralast+/+Neutral+Safety+Switch&brandName=Duralast&displayName=Neutral+Safety+Switch&categoryNValue=15799999&sortType=&store=966&isSearchByPartNumber=false&fromWhere=&fromString=search&counter=0&itemId=218-0&navValue=15700218&filterByKeyWord=neutral+safety+switch&productId=124168&searchText=neutral+safety+switch&categoryDisplayName=Electrical+%26+Lighting&parentId=57-0
