Removing ignition key is supposed to kill the power - I would check out that switch.

    The key wont turn come out but it kills the motor

    Fact that key will not come out even after you jiggle the steering wheel tells you that the ignition switch is FUBAR.

    Yes i that but would it have something to do with the lights staying on even if the car shuts down

    Kristy, you must be mentally challenged. I already told you that the switch is responsible!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds as if you need the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The contacts inside are most likely worn out.

97 nissan sentra with brake and battery light staying lit after changing battery. when it goes into passing gear light goes off then comes back on


These lights will come on if your alternator isn't charging fully. With a multi meter test your voltage at the battery with the engine running. The voltage should be above 14 volts. If it is below 14 you will need to replace the alternator.

My dash taillights dont work on my 1997 nissan


Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.
