start with easy thing first are you sure both bulbs are ok ? get a test lamp
or make one!
get a good 12v bulb attach wires to side of bulb one to the terminal on base of
bulb,tape together now you can fined volts
hand brake on out of gear?
turn key on go inside car above the brake
theres a switch pull the plug off
put one end your test lamp to earth (the car body) and the other wire put to the terminals on the plug you pulled off if you get your test bulb to light its the switch thats faulty
replace switch if you have power at the switch and still no lights make a short bit of wire take back the insulation a bit so bair wire is showing make it in to a u shaped and put in to plug above the
brake that you pulled off you should now have volts(power) in the boot useing your new test lamp
to fned it make good all earthing points its somewhere between the switch and the boot?
if you fine when brake is pressed you get more than one light on its a bad earth
if you have no power at the switch ts prob fuse box fault tthry wll known for bad solder joins

SOURCE: need wiring schematic for 1983
You can get the original Nissan dealer service manuals at faxonautoliterature.com. They should have complete wiring diagrams in them. a quick e-mail or phone call can confirm. I've used them before and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: have a 2000 ford escort
I believe the relay for that is under the hood built into on box where all the relays are, that box usually goes bad and must replace the entire box. all it has is multiple wires going into it. Usually is located near the radiator.
