Question about 1993 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Intermitten tail lights.

My tail lights, brake lights, turn signals and dash lights (including the clock and seatbelt lights do not work when turning the vehicle on but after a few bumps down the road the lights come on and work fine until the car is turned off. I noticed this problem after an oil change. I have un plugged the trailer lights. checked the fuses in the panel under the stearing column. unplugged and reconnect all connections in the steering column, and tail light access panels. I have checked the battery connections. The ignition switch works but is a little sloppy. Sometimes when starting it does nothing until you move your foot on the clutch pedal like the clutch safety switch is mis alligned, but it has been that way since I owned the vehicle

Move the harnesses back and forth,both inside under the drivers side and under the firewall on the engine side if the drivers side where they go where you say its intemittant to the relay/breaker/fuse box under the hood,if they keep coming back on and going out randomly,its surely not a short,but a poor connection to this power line bus that feeds all these circuits,especially if they ALL go out at the same time and heal themselves till you hit a bump

1998 montero sport. Tail lights and dash lights do not work. Brake lights work, and dash lights flash with right turn signal. What is going on?


Your tail lights and brake lights are on a separate electrical circuit mainly because your brake lights need to be activated by the brake switch in your brake petal. Check the voltage regulation circuit in your dash light circuit to see what is faulty.

How to fix my tail lights, my head lights work,brake light works and turn signals work, dash do too


Maybe a broken or lose wire. The turn signal and brake lights operate from one wire and the tail lights operate from a separate wire. It is possible that the tail light elements burned out of both bulbs. Pull the bulbs out and check them first.

Dash and tail lights not workjng brake and turn signal on passanger side not working


The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.

Rear taillight problems


I had the same problem with my 1996 Mystique about a year ago. The brake and tail lights stopped working, except for the center brake light in the window. Turned out to be oxidation of the terminals at the connector on the turn signal. Yes, that's right, turn signal. The electrical signal to the tail lights goes thru the connector on the turn signal. To fix, I cleaned the contacts and the brake lights started working again. Hope this helps. Cheers, Henry
