Look for electrical short inside tail lights and bulb connections, also if you have tow hitch and harness for trailer , check that harness too.

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.

I have a 97 nissan pickup and the head lights will not turn on, an the tail lights will not shut off. had to take fuse out to turn off tail lights. turn signal switch??

Yes it sounds like the switch is stuck in the park position.
You could pull the harness plug for the switch and check the circuits with a meter, or replace the switch.

On my 1991 Nissan pickup, the tail lights stay on even with ignition and light switch turned off. It's drained the battery so my only solution is to remove the bulbs. Any suggestions ?

Are you sure it is the tail lights, or could it be the brake lights? If it is the tail lights, the light switch should be replaced. If it is the brake lights, there is a switch operated by the brake pedal whitch could be stuck or otherwise inoperative and should be replaced.

My nissan tail lights are stayin on even when ignition is off and do not get brighter when i hit on the break what could cause this

I believe you might find that it is the brake lights on and not the tail lights (since they don't get brighter when the brakes are pushed). The cause of your problem is probably the brake light switch. I'm not positive about Nissan, but on most vehicles it is located up under the dash where the brake pedal can activate it. Follow the brake pedal arm up from the pad under the dash and you should find a switch that is supposed to activate when you move the pedal away from it.
Hope this helps...just my best guess

My tail lights will not turn off.

Tail lights or brake lights? If it is the brake lights the brake light switch is stuck shut. Replace it. If it is tail lights, then possibly the light switch is defective.

No tail lights.

You need to test for power with a test light at the tail light bulb, If you have power it could be a bad bulb or ground. IF you do not have power then trace the circuit back to the light switch.
