It sounds like you have a bad power brake vacuum booster.It is the big round metal cylinder behind the brake master cylinder where you add fluid.

Brake lights stay on in my 2000 nissan exterra

it's not any of what any of you suggested - it is a $4 part called a pedal bushing and it is connected to your brake pedal. The bushing fills a void where there is a switch, that when NOT depressed your brake lights stay on. It's a pain to replace, but that is what it is. I bet you found pieces from the old one on your floorboard.

My 2000 xterra's brake lights are on continuously

The button/switch is what should be adjusted not the lever. it might unscrew to move it closer or have a locking mechanism to move it outward, the lever should press the button about 80% down at rest

My 2000 Nissan xterra started shaking while idling and the service engine light came on. I changed the oil and it feels better. It doesnt knock In neutral or park. It also rattles till you hit about 30...

Also- the rattle is most likely the valve lifters. The lifters on this engine and the model previous (I have owned both to 180k miles or more) lose pressure when the motor is off. They re-pressureize with engine oil after the motor starts and tap a little until they "pump up" to full size. Just don't drive until the rattle dies down and as long as it is under 30 seconds or so- you will be fine there.

We tried changing my cabin filter on my 2000 Nissan xterra..we could not get the box open ? is this correct or do we need to cut out where the tabs go?

The tabs should work like locks. If you depress at the proper points it should unlock. Most access panels do not contain any screws in the access panel.

My 04 nissan xterra oil pressure comes on when turning sharp or braking hard. Light only stays on for 1-2 seconds. The oil was black when I bought it recently. Changed and still dark/dirty. Is this...

the engine may be slugged up from lack of maintenance/oil changes, since the oil was black when you purchased the truck. was the light coming on before you changed the oil?? if not, try changing the oil filter for nissan one. if that doesnt do it than you can dump some internal engine cleaner into it if you want, but it may develop external oil leaks. the oil builds up a film after a while inside of you engine. if you wash it off, the engine may start leaking oil. to really diagnose this, you should take oil pressure reading at the oil pressure sending unit. you will ofcourse need some specialty tools to do this job such as pressure gauge and oil pressure sending unit socket to remove it so you can screw the gauge into it.good luck.
