Fusible link on the left side of the engine.right next to the lip where the hood overlaps the frame. It sholuld have a cover over them but the one that is blown is either green with 2 wires or red with 1.

Break and battery light stays on all the time


sold all over earth, what country> we cant guess this....
don't break the brakes....!!!
my guess, you meant the
brake lamps are on keys in pocket. and the battery lamp is dash(charge) glows, keys in pocket. right?
and battery cable kills all this illegal states above. sure.

86 nissan PU.
720 PU>? Datsun>?
or D21 Nissan ( 1986 Dat-SUNS became NISSANS. in USA)
Model years 1986.5 (second half) and later were called Nissan Hardbody Trucks, chassis code D21.

D21 are called HARD BODY trucks. mid year changes.
so???? which is yours.

as you might not ,know , the models are wired diffrent by different exact models and country.
long ago , i had the 86 with the VG30 V6...

so i will roll the dice and answer for
D21
ok?

things off stay on, 101
bad wiring, hacked in wiring, radios,alarms and other things.
all can cause this..... its old and is common on old cars.
but if wiring is not hacked, (id see that in 10seconds in person)
no hacks.
gas engine car not diesel.
USA 86 body
brakes
Im looking now at the schematic and this car has a hot at all times
brake lamp switch. (foot pedal switch)
SO only a bad switch can cause this.... period
now the dash charge (battery ) light stuck on.


my online source ,has the alternator system missing.
so can not comment.
the lamp gets its power from the key switch
if the key switch fails , all warning lanps glow not just the
charge.(battery)
so its not that
my best guess is wiring errors, that put power the the cluster
key off. id bet that is it .

wiring errors to the ignition output is side, key switched power is failing.

Dash lights gone after installing stero fuses ok but i did have 4 wires left over after stero in stall are the dash lights fed from the stero


the dash lights dont get fed from the stereo , you may have dislodged the wiring connector from the rear of the dash , give them all a push back on , don't worry about the spare wires , they will be for an electric aerial etc

I am tryin to remove the factory radio from a 2000 Nissan Altima and install an aftermarket radio. but i cant seem to figure out a way to get the trim panel around the radio and HVAC module out. And i can...


  • disconnect the negative battery cable from the Altima's battery.

  • 2

    Pry up the trim panel surrounding the gear stick. The trip panel is held in place by plastic clips that will disengage when the panel is pried up. Use a flat-head screwdriver to pry up the panel. The panel doesn't need to be completely removed, just pried up enough to reveal two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio trim panel.

  • 3

    Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom edge of the radio trim panel, just above the gear stick. Remove the two Phillips screws from above the radio. Remove the ashtray.

  • 4

    Pry the radio trim panel loose with your fingers or a flat-head screwdriver and remove it.

  • 5

    Remove the four Phillips screws holding the radio in place. Set the screws aside for use later. Slide the radio forward and disconnect the wires from the back of the device.

  • 6

    Slide the cage included with your new stereo into your dash adapter. Slide the stereo into the cage and dash adapter.

  • 7

    Connect the wires from the dash to the back of your new stereo. All stereos have slightly different connections methods, so refer to the owner's manual accompanying your new stereo for the proper connection procedure.

  • 8

    Slide the stereo and dash adapter into the dashboard. Use the previously removed Phillips screws to mount the stereo in place. Replace the radio trim panel and gear stick trim panel. Reconnect your battery.

  • If you are putting a aftermarket stero make sure you buy a stero harness that plugs into the cars harness, on the back side of the harness you just installed will have open wires to conet to your new stero. If you cut the wires from your car to try to splice it to the new raido it can cause problems with the electrical system includeing making the transmission shift or act funny. you can pick the harness at wall-mart, car auido, best buy, or any car auido place.

    94 nissan truck doesn't have running lights, or dash lights. I hard wired the lights with a lead that ran directly from the positive terminal on the battery to the positive lead in to the bulb so I could...


    If by running current as you said fixes the problem. Then you have to check the head light swich and see if it is sending current out on all the needed wires. If it is you have a break in the wires some where. But for it to act the way you say the head light switch is probably the cause.

    WHAT YOU MIGHT CHECK IS THE FUSE FOR TAILLIGHTS, OR DASH LIGHTS. THEY WORK OFF THE SAME FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS BLOWN THE HEADLIGHTS WORK BUT NO TAIL OR DASH LIGHTS
