Question about 1995 Nissan Pathfinder
I added lights to my rear bumper the other day, which I hooked up to turn on when I put the car in reverse. I hooked them to the red wire which gives power to the lights already. Tested, they worked. Then about an hour later, I took the car out and as I was backing up noticed they weren't on, I then noticed none of my gauges (speed, rpm, temp) were functioning, and I stopped, put the car in park, and turned it off.
Since then if I turn the key I simply hear a few clicks and then nothing else. Everything else works with the exception of the reverse lights, and the car wont start or turn over or even attempt to do anything. Occasionally instead of clicks I will hear a loud buzzing.
I tested the ignition, and it's getting power. And the battery is getting power. I disconnected the lights I installed, after that didn't work I just reconnected them, and made sure I grounded everything right. Tomorrow I intend to test the starter which I didn't feel like undertaking tonight (it's not so easy getting to it in this car). I am wondering also if it's possibly my cars security could have something to do with this? It has been screwy lately, the alarm sounding even though I have the security switch toggled off. Is there a simple way to disconnect security?
And if anyone has a solution to the starting, reverse lights situation, it would be greatly appreciated.
Try removiing the lights again and then unhook the battery for 10 minutes and then hook it back up you could have affected the vehicles ats when the lights shorted and unhooking the battery should reset this problem

Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.
Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.
