Question about 1997 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

1995 Nissan Sentra - I've had the "brake" light on for years (only when engine is running). I replaced the back cylinder brakes and the "brake" light is off but the "malfunction light" is on.

You can try and reset your comp, take hot side battery cable loose, hold for 7 seconds, put back on and check, the switch on brake pedal could be bad, also check the fluid, if you had new brake cyc put on make sure they are not leaking, also on older nissian, the emergency brake will sorta fall down, making the light come on, get somebody pull brake, and emergency brake up and hold check and see if light is still on

Brake lights not working


Check fuse for brake lights first. If you have and are afamiliar with a test light test power through line. Fuse, light sockets and bulbs for power transfer to rear and then finally check the brake light swithch and if the brake light switch (on top of the brake pedal is good then look for a break in harness or wires going back to brake lights.

What is the engine size of a 1999 nissan sentra. Also, what is the issue when the brake light stays on. Thanks.


1600 cc's
if you are talking about the brake light on the drivers dashboard, it is because the brake fluid reservoir on the master brake cylindar is low. You need to add DOT-3 brake fluid to it.
if you are talking about the tail lights, it could be that the brake pedal is not returning to rest. Pull the brake pedal back towards you when you are sitting in the drivers seat. Light still on, suspect the brake pedal switch. It is right there under the dash. Just look up the brake pedal

Tail lights always on even when engine is off, and rear brake light wont come on


The tail lights dont have anything to do with the engine running or not.. you mean the brake lights are on? all the time? all of them, or just the one in the back window? If the back window brake light doest work the bulb is bad. If the brake lights stay on, the switch may be bad, out of adjustment, or the bumper for the switch fell out/broken.

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.

Have the battery tested and the alternator tested, the other issue may have a code stored to help point in the right direction, at that many miles things are bound to wear out.
