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

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!!

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.
