Have you checked all your fuses? 2 locations 1 under the hood and 1 on the passenger side floorboard in front of the door on side panel. Also check the piston switches that release when the door is opened, just push them in and let them fly out fast or wiggle them.

How do i fix a 1997 nissan maxima taillights. i have no tell lights and not the fuse?

If you have no lights period I would check the wiring. If it's not the fuses (Under hood and inside). Just the brake lights check the brake switch under brake pedal.
Some Nissan's have a unit between the wiring that goes out. Trace the wires from the tail lights It would be in the trunk. Small black box.
Also check someone on there has the answer. ;Good luck.

Reverse lights

The fuse is in the fuse box in the car, the hand book should tell you which fuse it is. If the fuse is OK, there is a switch on the front or top of the gearbox, should have two wires going to it. Could have come unplugged, if you bridge these wires and turn the ignition on, the reverse lights should come on, if they do, it's a faulty switch.

Brake light not work. done all checking blubs is good, replace switch, replace relay, fuse all good. turngal work hazzard light work but no brake light. i bypass on relay it work so i cant leave short...

the brake light switch powers the wire which goes to the turn signal switch. So I think if the turn signals works, then the turn signal switch is bad. Check for power at the wire going from the brake switch to the turn signal switch. . Since you didnt tell what year or model the truck is, I cant tell you what the wire color is.

My break lights aren't working

If all of your lights inside and out arent working, then its sounds like an electrical isuue. that cost as much as $1500 dollars. But i would start with checking the fuses in your relay box under the hood. That is usually where the lights fuse is at. Some cars have two fuse boxes and a relay box, one fuse box is inside the car, one is under the hood, and the relay box is under the hood. So i would check the relay box under the hood or fuse box if you can find one. granted your brother checked them all, it sounds to me like an obvious blown fuse... good luck

Speedometer dash area light not working

I'm thing of a place for you to start looking. On the far left side of your dash is your light switch just to the right of it is your dash light switch it's a little wheel roll it up and see if your dash lights come on.
If not you have a fuse box on the left side of you dash you can only see it with the door open. Remove cover on the inside of the cover it will tell you what fuse is for what. fuse may say illum 10A .
Also your parking brake must be fully released or your auto lights will not work. You also have a fuse box under the hood on the left behind the battery. You will find part of your fuse lights there. I have had a lot of problems with my 2001 Chevy 2500HD in the wiring. Runs good just bad wiring.

Rear brake lights do not work on 1999 Ford Explorer. Could it be a fuse or switch?

After doing a little research I have found that fuse 13 controls the brake lights. It should be a 20A fuse located in the fuse box in the vehicle. This fuse should always have power. This can be tested with a standard 12volt test light (available at any autoparts store) It is basically a light built in to a pointed probe with a jumper wire to connect to ground. If there is power, the light will glow. You attach the jumper wire to a metal part of the car and touch the pointed probe to the line you are checking for power. In this case you would check the fuse itself first. It is a mini fuse but you should still be able to tell if it is blown by looking at it. If the fuse looks burnt or you see a break in the metal "filament" it is blown. You can also use a multimeter and check the continuity. If the fuse is fine, use the 12v test light to test the power to the fuse by placing the pointed probe in to the socket that the fuse came from. If it has power you can then check at the switch which is connected to the pedal. It should have 12V at the light green/Red wire at all times and 12V coming from the solid light green wire when the brake pedal is pressed. The other three wires are transmission related and do not have any effect on the brake light circuit.

99 jeep windows dont work any more fuse good

Check fuses in fuse panel inside vehicle as well as under hood in fuse/relay box, or may be labeled power distribution . If all well there, you may have a main wire broken in drivers door jamb/hinge area, where harness comes into door, but pulling switch & checking for power to it, will tell you if that is so.

Right turn or brake light not working

Questions? Do any of your brake lights work? Including Center Stop? Do your parking/taillights lights work? All your bulbs are multi-filiment bulbs that work through mulitple sources. Knowing which bulbs are doing what under all conditions might help narrow down the problem. Meanwhile, check for continuity between, stoplight switch and multifuntion switch (white wire). Also, check DrkBlue/White from MFSw. to Boby Control module. BE SURE to use a low inpedance tester to protect your modules. The DrkBl/Wh wire is your rigth side input. I may be a good idea while testing these wires to wiggle them to look for intermitent shorts.
