Question about Nissan Pathfinder
This problem is caused by a defective and or out of adjusment brake light switch, if u look under the dash in front of steering wheel near the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached top/on u will see a switch, it is very easy to change, a 10 min job, below find a picture part number and the price of the switch for a typical Pathfinder, this is a 1996, but all model years are similar, u domn't say year of yours. U may want to check the adjustment of the switch 1st, it is a button type of switch, the little push button contacts the brake pedal arm and is depressed when the brake is not being used, when you use the brake the little button comes out and that turns the brake lights on, make the button is fully depressed when the brake is off, if it isn't turn the threaded switch shaft until the light goes off and lock it down with the nut on it, recheck it several times to make sure the problem is fixed, if the lights stay on replace the switch, it is cheap.
