2003 Pathfinder LE AT Oil Brake and battery light flicker

I had the same issue these lights would flicker while driving. I had a factory battery from 2002 and I decided to change it. because I was having trouble starting the vehicle and the trickle charge was giving different readings for percent complete. after changing the batter the vehicle started and ran fin but these 3 indicators would flicker. I went through every fuse with the radio and the security fuse pulled and one by one pulled them off and struck the positive terminal to see if it sparked. I finaly noticed the fog light had significant amount of water in it. an hour before I had driven down the highway in the rain. I pulled the fog light off and disconnected it then I started the vehicle. all the 3 lights came on solid, I reved the engine and they went off then flickered then stopped. I drove the vehicle 15 on the highway again and it has not happend. I will drive it again tomorrow and see if it remains. I think the main point is there is a short somewhere and I am hoping it was the fog light....

.I spent a lot of time and head scratching over the exact same problem ...YOU NEED A NEW REGULATOR (it is in the alternator).repair options are ;replace voltage regulator only , rebuild complete alternator , replace alternator with a rebuilt one , or replace alternator with a new one
The clue was getting diff. readings on your volt meter ....mine would spike up to 18 volts but you have to put your volt meter on and get yourself a cup of coffee (or a beer) and stare at your meter for atleast 15 minuits after the engine is heated up ....

Oil light flickers when it warms up, when your stopped.


The flickering light usually indicates low oil pressure particularly at idle.Check oil quantity. How long since serviced and filter replaced. If these all good have your oil pressure tested with a master gauge. Some issues can be oil pickup slugged up or if high miler engine bearings.

My 1994 nissan, the alt/oil light, battery light keep flickering.


It could possibility be bad or loose connection on the alternator or battery wiring, or a loose alternator belt. All those lights come on when the battery isn't getting a charge, so the alternator is where I'd start looking.

2005 Pathfinder no reverse lights


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

Brake light, oil temperature light and battery light are on


Wow, 3 problems, did the lights come on one at a time or all at once? How long has each been on? 1st thing is to check fluid levels-brake, & oil. You may damage the vehicle if you continue to drive it. The brake light means a malfunction in the system, or low brake fluid. If the level is low, adding should turn the light off. You then need to check to see where the system is leaking. Oil temp light, or is it just oil light? This will go on when you basically have no oil in the engine, or the oil pump has failed, both very bad. Battery light indicates the vehicle is not charging the battery. Check the drive belt, did it break? This could cause a bunch of lights to go on. Let me know the answers to the above, so I can help to refine my answer.
