Question about 2006 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

All 3 brake lights on my 2006 nissan sentra went

All 3 brake lights on my 2006 nissan sentra went out the other day. This hasn't affected any other lights in the car. The fuses are good, I took the panel off below the steering wheel and located the brake light switches. I pushed the wires into the switches and tried to make sure everything was tight. The lights went back on and everything seemed fine,but the same thing happend again the lights went out. Sometimes they go on and then other times they don't work I was just wondering if some WD40 on the switches might work or if both switches need replacing.how difficult are the switches to replace? thank you

WD40 is nonconducting so it can't hurt. Also check the wires at the lights for corrosion.

HI
IT WAS LOCATE IN UPPER OF THE BRAKE PEDAL
BEFORE YOU CHANGE IT CHECK FOR :-

STOP LAMP SWITCH AND ASCD CANCEL SWITCH CLEARANCE
1. Twist and pull to remove switch.
2. Pull up on brake pedal pad and hold.
3. Insert switch into retainer until switch plunger is completely depressed.
4. Turn the switch until it locks into place in the brake pedal bracket.
NOTE:
When turning the switch to lock into place, the switch backs off the stopper to the correct clearance automatically.
5. Release the brake pedal pad.

SOURCE: Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra

I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!

SOURCE: Where is the blower resistor on a 2001 Nissan Sentra?

Its actually not that bad to change. If you open the glove box and remove the screws then the screws along the bottom of the glove box at the bottom of the dash the box will slide out. Remember to disconnect the light if it has one. Now you will be able to see the underside of the dash. You can see a large black box that has wires and vacuum lines all over. You need to locate a small flat plate with two screws and a plug in the middle. Disconnect the plug and remove the screws. The resistor will come straight out. The back side will look like small coiled up springs of different sizes. Install in reverse.Hope this helps. Good luck. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

IT COULD BE A FUSE ,IT COULD BE A RELAY TOO, BECAUSE IF IT IS NOT GETTING POWER TO THE SWITCH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL OR FROM THE COLUMN TO THE SWITCH, IT WILL NOT LET IT RELEASE, ITS ALSO POSSIBLE THE SWITCH IS BAD ON THE BRK PEDAL.

My brake lights on my nissan sentra 2006, dont work, fuses are good and bulbs are good, how do I remove my brake light sensor behind the brake pedal?


look to find how its fastened in place and what electrical connectors are hooked up to it and how they are fastened to the switch.disconnect the wire connector first noting how you removed it.then disconnect the switch from its mounting again noting how and what you did to remove it then re-install the new one in reverse order.this is all a tech does to do the same job.

Stop lights do not work when brakes are applied on a Nizzan Sentra 2006. fuse is good. Both brake lights do not work.


If bulbs are good disconnect the stop light switch mounted on the brake pedal. Jump the connectors and see if the lights come on. If yes, bad switch. If no, check for power and ground at each wire.

Hey, i checked out the "PLATE" theory, i couldnt find anything in the nissan Database (sorry), if the parking lights work on the car, but not the BRAKE lights, it could be caused by the brake switch, Its located under the brake pedal, its a simple concept... when you hit the brake, the pedal hits a button to trigger the brake lights, its fairly common for these to go out, however, this wouldnt cause the dash lights to not work, you might try looking for a short in your wiring, Best of luck!

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.
