2002 q45

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Q45 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes and I just disconnected the battery

This most likely means the stop lamp switch that is located on brake pedal assembly has failed. Unplug the switch to see if lights shut off if so it needs to be replaced. This would cost around $100 to have done at a shop, here is a picture. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
