Normally when those lights come on .
Is why the alernator is no charging or is charging to much.
Or you have problem with wires.
Check the wires and all connection from the battery to the alternator..

I hope this can help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.

    Check on the engine compartment fuse box.

    Check all the fuses. one by one.

    If everything is OK.

    You need to replace the ALTERNATOR.

    Is a common problem for NISSAN.

Why does my handbrake light stay on ?

If it has no effect on nothing and your brakes are fine I would not worry about it . You may have a slight short in the wiring that goes to the emergency brake .
