Try unhooking the negitave battery cable, the black cable, for a few min. (with the car off) this resets the computer and it should fix the problem. If not, then take it to an auto parts store (go with o'rileys if you can) and they can reset it for you...

1997 Nissan Maxima brake and battery lights on


John, I think I may have already answered this one.Check and clean battery connections and all grounds(loosen and re tighten all ground connections to give good contact), check belt for being loose. Nissan forums say it is a bad alternator.
Check the attached links,

Would your engine light come on if your ABS and brake light come on?


If the ABS warning light comes on the engine light should not come on as well. ABS light shows there is something wrong with the brakes. The engine light shows that there is something wrong with the engine.

I have a 96 nissan maxima it won't go into park


Most likley problem is your brake light switch. go underneath the dash to the brake pedal and depending on wether you have cruise control or not ther will be one or two sensors there. the black sensor should be the brake light switch. disconnect and jump the connector with a paper clip and see if the brake lights comeon and the shifter will move.

Brake lights stay on and ignition is off


your brake light switch has malfunctioned. it is locatad on top of the brake pedal but you have to stand on your head to see it up there it is a very easy fix one nut and one wire clip. when you replace it have some one watch the back of the car while you push the brakes. you will have to adjust the switch so that when you tap the brake pedal a little ways the brake lights come on. and if you do not feel comfertable to do this you can take it to a repair shop of your choice. i hope this helps you. and please rate my solution
thank you
