Brake lights and running lights are connected.

For my 1994 Nissan pickup truck: When I step on the brake pedal, the running lights turn on. When I turn on the running lights, the brake lights go on. Everything works fine (brakes, lights) otherwise.

Obviously some wires shorting out, probably at the rear of the truck where gravel stones have pounded them Or, if you have a trailer plug on it, that would be a good place to look.

My brake lights will not engage when i press the brake pedal

fuse, relay, or bad connection.
check the rubber plug between the switch and mount, they fall out and can cause lights not to work.

Also check grey connection for rear lights under the bed of the truck. Sometimes gets loose or too dirty.

There have also been dealer recalls for this problem, so google TSB 1994 nissan pickup and look around.

hope this helps

Sounds like a fuel pressure issue. Have you changed your fuel filter lately ?

The brake lights on my 94 nissan pickup won't turn off. Do I need to replace the brake light switch? If not what could be the source of the problem and/or what do I need to do to fix the problem?

This problem is caused by a defective brake light switch, the switch is either out of adjustment (it is a threaded adjustment) or is defective, it is located under the dash and at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to. There will most likely be a plastic panel under the dash you will need to remove to see the switch. Here is a picture of the brake light switch.

Brake light stays on

the switch for your brake lights is located near your brake pedal,it is usually a spring loaded switch that comes out when the pedal is pushed & the pedal pushes it back in when it is released,this switch may have come loose & is active all the time,you need to make sure that it is pushed hard up against the brake pedal & tighten the adjusting screws to lock it in position,check that your stop lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in....hope this helps....cheers

Brake lights stay on when trucks not running.

Check the brake light switch. Try this, pull UP on the brake pedal and see if the lights go off. If they do, the brake light switch may just need to be adjusted (located on the upper portion of the brake pedal). If there is no adjustment on it, replace it.

In my 1994 Nissan Pickup my ABS and brake light comes on whenever making right turns. What can I do to solve this problem?

Have you verified your brake fluid level in the reservoir?

Also, be sure your emergency brake pedal/sensor is secure. You may be causing the vehicle to think the E brake is on and if the E brake is engaged, all vehicles with ABS will disable the ABS system.

There will be an electronic flasher module located under your dash near the steering column (don't know it's exactly location as it varies). It sounds like this unit may be faulty.
