SOURCE: Not your typical brake light problem...

hello what i would do first disconnect the wires off the brake light switch test the power wire to make sure you have power to the switch if you do contact them to bypass the switch completely test see if your lights are lit if not i would trace the wiring back to the sockets contacts inside might be corroded or wires in the socket are not contacting the metal tab or broken at the crimp they sell replacement sockets you can splice into the harness if you dont have power at the break light wires you need to trace wires back to fuse panel first check to make sure there is not a secondary fuse box under your hood usually on drivers side near the strut tower usally says fuses goodluck please rate

ITS POSSIBLE THAT YOUR REVERSE LIGHT SWITCH IS FAULTY BEST WAY TO FIND OUT IS TO DISCONNECT REVERSE SWITCH AT G/BOX & BRIDGE OUT CONNECTIONS WITH IGN ON & IN REVERSE LIGHTS SHOULD GO ON IF THEY DO THEN ITS YOUR SWITCH.

SOURCE: brake lights went out, changed bulbs, checked fuse, still wont work

You have to check the brake light switch which should be around the brake pedal on the upperside.
Ones located rremove the wires tht go to the switch and jump them by using a piece of wire, thn check if the brake lights come 'on'. If they do , thn its the switch tht may need replacing or even sometimes adjusting inorder to operate.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: reverse lights wont work

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

My rpm went out on my 1988 pathfinder and I can't find the fuse to see it blow


If you are talking about the tachometer that shows RPM's there is none it is part of the engine control module or dash cluster and needs to be checked out by a mechanic that has the proper testing machine..sorry good luck.

I have a 2000 chevy silverado with a maual trans. The reverse lights won't come on. All other lights work, I've switched the bulbs out and checked the fuses and they are all fine.


I would take the bulbs out and put the trans in reverse, the check for voltage with a test light or multimeter. If no voltage is present then it's more likely a problem with the reverse switch which is located on the trans.

Just bought 1988 pathfinder and am having some tail light issues. When headlights are off and I brake, the left brake light is the only one that works. When headlights are on, both rear running lights...


Hi, There are several possibilities that I can think of:
a) The incorrect bulbs were inserted into the sockets for the brake lights.
b) The correct bulbs were inserted incorrectly into the sockets for the brake lights.
and
c) Faulty wiring work was done to the vehicle, such as after an accident.
I was unable to get the bulb information on line. So here's is what you can do.
If you have the owner's manual it will specify which bulbs work correctly. If you
don't, go to a local auto parts house, such as Advance, Autozone, etc.
They will be able to recommend the correct bulbs you need.
I would check you existing bulbs and also, at the same time check to see if they are inserted
correctly.
Hope this helps,
Mark

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.
