2002 Xterra. My wife was driving alone, and when she pressed the brake
pedal, the "set" light illuminated on the panel. Removing her foot from the brake made "set" extinguish. This repeated for the whole trip in-town for the*****(no cruise control was used). Once she parked and shut down the engine, the brake lights would not go off. I pulled the 20AMP fuse so as to not flatten the battery. I'm thinking it is the brake-lamp switch on the pedal-arm.... if that's where it is.... it was getting dark and it is difficult for me to get my head under the panel. We've owned the car since new and it has ~150,000 miles on it.
JA: Have you checked the fuse? What size is your engine?
Customer: The fuse is fine. Please read my paragraph. It has the V6 and is rear-wheel drive.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, I will repair myself. This just happened, so I have tried nothing, as it was getting very dark outside.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I find it strange that the brake-light circuit makes the "set" lamp illuminate.... or are these two separate issues. Neither ever happened before and both happened simultaneously for the first time ever, tonight.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
