Hi! You may just have a grounded wire and I suggest that you have it checked thouroughly by an auto electrician to correct this. The battery light is an indication of a weak battery or faulty alternator but if it starts fine then its certainly just a grounded wiring somewhere. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

1997 Nissan sentra. No lights brake/tail/turn signals on the rear section of vehicle. All front lighting works. What could cause this? Wiring diagram would help


1st check the fuse box. The corresponding fuse for that set of lights could be blown. If so, replace it with one of the same voltage.

If its not blown, next check all the light bulbs and terminals to their sockets. (With the light swithed off...checking solder or crimp connectors for breaks or corrosion)

If these are good, it might be a short in the wires to the lights. That is best fixed by a mechanic.

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.

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

My dash taillights dont work on my 1997 nissan


Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.

Change Brake Light


Every car is different. I'd suggest you check your owners manual, or take it into your local Nissan dealer.

There might be something in the trunk like a cover into the light. If you can, have someone step on the brake pedal, and you watch for any light shining through the back of the trunk (by the lights).

1995 Nissan Sentra, The engine light and brake


You could have faulty altenator or short causing the battery to drain. The engine light usually comes on when anything electrical or sensor wise is faulty. Brake light will come on if, low brake fluid, e-brake handle is up.

Just hit 180,00mi and battery and brake light diming


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.
