Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder

Open Question

1996 Nissan Pathfinder, ABS light came on ... also a loud humming coming from under the hood. I yanked the ABS fuse under the hood and the humming went away & started again when I replace the fuse. I figure I'll leave the fuse out since I don't want to kill my battery nor do I want a fire started. What is that unit and what's going on with that HUM?

SOURCE: 92 Nissan Pathfinder brake lights stuck on

Change the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. Go down to the parts store and ask for a new brake liight switch for your Pathfinder and look up under the dash where the brake pedal arm goes and you will see the switch. You will need to unplug the wires to your old one and disconnect it and install the new one the same way. It is pretty much self adjusting once the brake pedal is released. If the brake light does not go out adjust the switch pin to be longer so it will depress when the pedal is released

SOURCE: Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra

I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!

SOURCE: brake light and stop brake light stay on after car is turned off. This is killing the battery. Tried changing the 15 amp breaker under sterrting column

Your brake light switch is eith stuck or gone bad.  It is located on the brake pedal and you can try to jiggle it to see if it will free itself and turn the lights off or you will need to replace it.  It's a pretty easy job and relatively inexpensive.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Your alternator is dead/dying. Nissan puts both of those lights on to tell you that the alternator isn't charging your battery.

My 1996 pathfinder wont start.i noticed under the hood on the drivers side fuse box the fuse labelled ascd inhibt is missing.but the truck runs with a push start/


It's a long shot, but if you know one fuse is missing, why not replace it, just for giggles?
Can you get back to us with the solution to this problem to help out future readers, thanks.

Sounds like you have a short in your wiring sucking up your electricity before it goes to the starter. Check for shorts near thye main relay box and in it.

Loud hum from under the hood. heavy vibration fron air filter all the way to top of engine


Hello,
I think the loud hum is coming from the exhurst. The exhurst either has a cut/hole or the rubber holding the exhurst has removed. This will make the exhurst begin to shake and vibrate.
Turn on the car, go under the car, then ask someone to press the throttle. This will reveal where the vibration is coming from.
Keep me posted.
Good luck.

How do I disable ABS


will try to help. just going to answer the question and assume that you know that with the abs disabled your brakes will lock up the wheels and will make the car slide when brakes apllied hard!! look under hood in black fuse box, pull the relay out for the abs it will be labeled on the inside cover of the fuse box.and that will make your abs light come on inside on the dash.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

ABS light with brake light come on and rear brakes heat up and sometimes seize. Brakes, rotors, calipers, brake lines have all been replaced. Fuse in fuse box taken out- works for a bit,but still allowed...

Very loud Hum under driver side


There is an ABS fuse under the hood that you can take out, and the noise will quit. The noise is accually your ABS pump. They are kind of expensive.
