1991 nissan maxima-when you step on the brakes, the tail light fuse blows. Then, the dashboard lights and gearshift lights go out. They come on when you step on the brakes. The brake lights are unaffected.

I have 1991 Nissan maxima. All my lights,tail lights and brake lights work EXCEPT my left brake light. Changed the bulbs and still dont work. Can someone help?


Pull the bulb back out and look in the plug. They get corroded and the tabs will spread apart and/ or break off. Bend them back if they are there, replace it , if not.. If it looks good, you need to use an ohm meter and check continuity of the tabs to the wire. They usually break close to the plugs.

How do i fix a 1997 nissan maxima taillights. i have no tell lights and not the fuse?


If you have no lights period I would check the wiring. If it's not the fuses (Under hood and inside). Just the brake lights check the brake switch under brake pedal.
Some Nissan's have a unit between the wiring that goes out. Trace the wires from the tail lights It would be in the trunk. Small black box.
Also check Maxima.org someone on there has the answer. ;Good luck.

dashboard lights are brighter when lights are off so you can see stuff in the daylight-check and make sure you have the correct bulb and its plugged in correctly-something is confusing the cpu-a blown fuse usually means something is shorted out-check for cut or bare wires around your tailamps-cheers Denny

I have a 1995 Maxima, and the brake lights keep going out as the 15 amp fuse under the dash keeps blowing. The tail lights themselves work, and all the other lights work. No brake lights will work. I'm...


TO SIMPLIFY,fuse box-pedal switch-tail light cluster,maybe something inbetween but hardly likely...start with cleaning the contacts for the brake bulbs as they may have verdigris on the brass connectors,then change the switch,then worry.

2000 Nissan Maxima. Headlights work but tail lights won't come on. How do you fix the wiring of this?I have changed the bulbs and nothing. The brake, reverse, and turn signal lights work, so the bulbs...


tail lights work on a different filament than the rest of the lights you mentioned, it is possible both bulbs are burned out for that filament. if not, check the fuses as the tail light circuit in some cars is on a seperate fuse. the remaining possibility could be bad socket contacts.
