Your year Pathfinder, as mine, had a slew of bad head light switches. The headlight switches caused a slurry of intermediate nightmares for a lot of customers. Many complaints included:
1. My head lights sometimes turn off upon switching from low to high beams.
2. My lights turn completely off when I switch to high beams.
3. My lights flicker when I switch from high to low beams and vise verse.
4. My lights sometime wont turn on at all.
5. My lights go on and off on bumpy roads.
6. My lights sometimes come on by themselves.
All of these different but similar complaints contribute to the infamous head light switch. There has even been reports of continuous dead battery's due to the head light switch turning the lights on and off intermittently and eventually deadening the battery.
The light switch is relatively easy to replace. Simply remove the the two upper and lower steering column covers, disconnect the two wiring harness bulk head connectors, a couple screws and wallah.
Remember your safety and always dissconncet your your battey upon electrical repairs.
Just last week I bought a new head light switch for about $70.00. I would highly recommend buying a new head headlight switch and not buying a junkyard special. You will likely be buying another faulty switch.

Hi, There are several possibilities that I can think of:
a) The incorrect bulbs were inserted into the sockets for the brake lights.
b) The correct bulbs were inserted incorrectly into the sockets for the brake lights.
c) Faulty wiring work was done to the vehicle, such as after an accident.
I was unable to get the bulb information on line. So here's is what you can do.
If you have the owner's manual it will specify which bulbs work correctly. If you
don't, go to a local auto parts house, such as Advance, Autozone, etc.
They will be able to recommend the correct bulbs you need.
I would check you existing bulbs and also, at the same time check to see if they are inserted
Hope this helps,
