Question about 1994 Nissan Pickup
I have already replaced the stop light sensor
If you replaced the brake switch, are you getting power in and out of the switch ?

Fuse, relay, or bad connection.
check the rubber plug between the switch and mount, they fall out and can cause lights not to work.
Also check grey connection for rear lights under the bed of the truck. Sometimes gets loose or too dirty.
There have also been dealer recalls for this problem, so google TSB 1994 nissan pickup and look around.
hope this helps

check the brake light switch. when you step on the brake pedal, it allows the 'normally open' switch to move to the 'contact position'. If it's not broken, it may just need adjusted, or a shot of WD40 if it sticks.

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.
First things first: I suggest taking your truck to a mechanic or an auto parts store that can do a diagnostics test done. If any fuses or relays are blown, this test should bring up any codes that would indicate any type of malfunctions.
The shift lever being locked: In newer vechicles, the brake pedel, as you know must be pressed in order for the transmission to be put into gear. There should be a sensor on the transmission that runs in cahoots with the brakes. This sensor tells the computer what gear the transmission is in. It is very possible that at the last time you put the vehicle in Park, that the switch had it's final moment of ability. If the sensor is in fact useless, it may be the reason the transmission is locked into Park. It may be the reason why the brake lights aren't working; and why the brake lights fuse is blowing. Also, check all relays, (can be tested with a fuse tester) and make sure all relays are good as well. Make sure also that the light sockets for the brake lights, tail lights, back up lights, and front running and blinker lights are in good condition. One faulty socket, can cause more than one bulb to blow, or cause fuses and relays to blow as well. Follow the wiring for the brake lights for as far as you can to ensure there is no damage (melted, broken, etc.). This could also affect fuses. This truck I see is barely 5 years old, but you'd be surprised how quickly parts and wiring and such will go bad, or wear out and/or just quit working.
If the transmission sensor is not the problem, and all fuses and relays are good. tranny fluid is full, check the linkage under the truck. It may be jammed somehow, or stuck. On the transmission, where the lever inserts, there is a seal - inside that seal, there is like a gear that the lever pushes in order to shift from gear to gear etc. You may need to have that checked out to make sure it's not broken inside. If your fluid is low, or empty, you may have froze up your transmission, however, you most likely would have been seeing large amounts of fluid in the frequent places you park. Another think to check is your differentials. Make sure the fluid is full in each, as well as the seals not leaking. The seal sits just inside the inner most part of the pumpkin (differential ball) where the yoke is inserted. Maybe you have just locked up the rear driveline. Check the seal on the front end of the driveline as well, (goes into the rear of the transmission (yoke). Check your U-Joints as well, making sure they are intact, tight. It may be a good idea to have them replaced if they look supsicous in any way.
These are all the things I can think of that would make your truck be stuck in park, and make your lights not work, and blow fuses.
I sincerely hope this information is useful and aides in the successful repair of your truck. Thank you again for choosing fixya.com. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance, or if you have any more questions or concerns (comments).

You can get a new washer/grommet from an auto supply. I can't send you a picture or schematic, but if you take a flash light and get down under the dash, you will be able to see the switch mechanism near the hinge that moves when you touch the brakes. You probably need to close the gap until the brake light stay off when not being used. Make sure the light comes on when you step on the brake pedal.
