Question about 2002 Infiniti I35

Open Question

Need to find fuse for brake light for 2002 Infiniti I35... brake lights coming on all the time and drain battery. Must be electrical problem because pedal switch completely bypassed.

Brake lights coming on all the time. Thought it was the pedal pad being broken but lights come on even with pedal switch removed from circuit so it is being bypassed. Apparently no fuse for this circuit, MFG may have installed nonremovable fusible link in harness instead. Will have to remove all lightbulbs in tail section and rear window light to be able to charge battery and be able to move the car. YouTube video said to look for 15 amp fuse labeled STOP L. which doesn't exist on my car. Would also like insight on just how the switch is being bypassed for the braking system. No burnt parts of odors. Only use car 1-2 x a week so I don't want to spend hundreds of $$$$$$ having to hunt down ghosts with the electrical system. I ride a bike most of the time so the car is only on rainy days and when I have to carry stuff.

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: replaced braked pads - now VDC and Slip Lights are on

I would take the car to almost any auto parts store and ask them to check the ODB II computer for codes and to reset the "Check engine light". Get the code that they tell you and it should go a long way to pointing you in the right direction to fixing this problem. It might also be that when you pumped the brakes that you somehow set a code in the computer from the ABS system and now that you have the brakes pumped up and working correctly resetting the Check engine light might fix your problem.

Good luck! Write back with any code you get and I'll see if I can help you figure out what the problem might be.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: tail lghts/brake lights

Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

While driving Infinity I35-the battery light and brake light came on. Then the car shut off and it would not come back on, replaced the battery but both lights remain on? What can this be?

This is the cause of a bad alternator that has stop working properly and not charging the battery anymore. So the vehicle might be running on battery until it drains it. If car won't start again, that means there is no more juice on the battery enough to start the car. This indication on the dashboard of these light coming on is a nice indication that Japanese vehicle companies have applied to give a hint that Alternator is not functioning properly anymore. Taking the Alternator is very easy and its only held by one or two bolts with battery wire connection attached to it. Taking it to a Alternator rebuilder to get it fix is the cheapest way than taking it to the dealer where as the rebuilder will charge around $40 were as the dealer will charge $100 + for replacement.

No MIL light

Your ECU is telling you that your vehicle is running fine therefore it has no need to light up.When there is a problem then it will light up and it will remain lit.

How to program 2002 i35 infiniti keyless remote?

The procedure goes like this. First get in the car and lock all the doors. Secondly insert and remove the key repeatedly until the turn signal indicators on the dash flash twice simultaneously, it should be like seven or eight times. Then turn the key on and press the lock button on the remote and the lights should flash again. After that turn the key off and manually unlock and open the drivers door, then shut it. Wait a few seconds then try the remote.
