SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing

Terry: It's obvious I'm not dealing with a USA spec car, however, I had lived in the U.S. Virgin Islands and am quite familiar with the Bluebirds of the past. Nissan still uses the same basic circuitry designs as far as what circuits serve what. Here are the circuits to look at.
All lights which are switched on by the headlight switch. This includes the Cigarette lighter back light, radio light power supply, automatics have shifter back lighting as well as your climate controls and all dash lights. Your side marker lights are also served by this circuit. The dash lights go through a type of dimmer switch which essentially creates resistance, thus dimming the lights. Sometimes the clocks are tied into the circuits. Start with the simple things first and work your way in. There is a type of fuse called a circuit breaker which will plug into the fuse block in place of the fuse.
Get the same rating as the one you pulled out. DO NOT USE A JUMPER WIRE AND LET THE SMOKE OUT OF THE WIRES!
If the circuit breaker blows immediately, you have a serious short!
With the circuit breaker, if the short is not real bad, the lights will burn for a little bit before the breaker blows. Once it cools, it will close and the circuit will operate again. While it is in operation, you look for the lights that operate and the ones that don't. Check the ones that don't. Although it's rare for a bulb to cause a fuse to blow, it does happen.
I often find problems are due to radio installations or other types of installations. So if you don't have a factory radio or if you have some type of accessory which has been installed in the console or dash, this would be a prime suspect. Nissan's are not really known for electrical problems unless they have been in collisions. If your car has been in a collision, look in the area where it was hit. You may find a pinched wire or damaged insulation. I am not quite sure what model your car would compare to in reference to a US car.
The Bluebird's were 510's. Are the Maxima's now? What ever model it is, unless it has no sister model imported to the
USA, the odds are that the circuits are going to be real close if not identical! I hope I have been of some assistance. Let me know.

SOURCE: tail lights on 2004 nissan maxima out.

hey i just fixed mine with the same exact problem, look, all you have to do is open your 3rd fuse box which is next to your washing fluid on the passenger´s side under the hood, for that you need to remove the cover wich is pretty easy (5 staples all you need is a thin flat screw driver to lift the center of the staple and then the whole staple) then you take off the cover and then you open the fuse cover, you are looking for the TAILLIGHT fuse wich is the first on the upper row from right to left if you are standing on the passenger side looking towards the drivers side (you can also look for that fuse in the fuse box cover diagram) remembre is a 15A fuse, replace it, jaja and thats how you save some dollars. saludos desde guadalajara mexico.

look for a fuse, inside fuse box cab, or plate lights, perhaps other items don't work at the same time, look for any loose wire in trunk area

SOURCE: No tail lights, tag light, dash board lights in 97 Nissan Maxima

If you don't have a manual, just get a test light, and ground it to your door hinge. At the back of every fuse, you will see part of the metal filament showing through. Touch your test light to each side of the fuse. You should have power to both sides of every fuse (when your key is on). If no voltage on one side, the fuse is burnt.

1996 nissan maxima has no dash lights and no tail lights all fuses are good


The only thing that both circuits use is the headlight switch.
I would start there checking for power on those two circuits.
The tail lights are actually parking lights so the front and back are on the same circuit.

1996 nissan maxima brake and battery lights on .... I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima and the battery and brake lights both came on after bleeding the brakes. What could it be?


Check your brake fluid it is probably low. Top it off and you should be fine. The lights are set so that both come on when low on fluid.
