Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder

2005 Pathfinder no reverse lights

2005 Pathfinder LE (automatic) reverse lights do not work. Fuses are all okay. Light bulbs are okay. Brake lights work fine. However, there is no power to the reverse light sockets when car is put into reverse. My understanding is that the reverse (back up) switch is not replaceable, as it is part of the shift assembly. Also, I'm told that the output from the reverse (back up) switch goes to a BCM (body control module) which tells the reverse lights to light up. Has anyone had this issue of reverse lights not lighting up.

On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced

2005 Toyota Sienna rear brake lights not working. Rear Center light works fine. I have replaced the bulbs and checked fuses. Continuity is good. all other rear lights work fine. What is the problem?


I am wondering if you have a bad ground wire.
Each tail light/brake light had a separate ground wire, that is supposed to be hooked to the ground somewhere.
If it is bad, those lights will not work.
Your center light probably has a separate ground wire.
If you take an electrical meter, test the bulbs with a meter, then stick the meter's contacts inside the socket and press the brake pedal and see if the meter shows "juice".
Often a car wreck/fender bender can break or compromise the ground wire of which I spoke.
God bless your efforts.

Reverse lights on my 1987 Nissan Pathfinder V6 have never worked


I would check the switch on the transmission which controls that circuit. It is called the backup light switch, or the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic.

2005 Dodge Durango, no brake lights...reverse lights come on when in reverse..the fuses were checked and they are all good, bulbs good and brake light or stop light switch has been replaced...still no...


The brake lights and reverse lights are on different circuits with different triggers. Check any trailer connections you have connected or spliced in that could be leading to a short. Double check the light control switch. If you have no tail lights when the lights are on then the problem is most likely the light control switch.

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

2005 Corolla LE brake lights not working


to ss1957, i have exactly the same problem as yours. At first i thought the bulbs of both side are okay because the filaments (there's two on each) are intact. It turned out that they're not. The brake lights came back as soon as I replaced the bulbs.
