Hi there,

Do you still need assistance with this?

Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok

usually when this happens it's the brake lights. If you follow the brake pedal arm up under the dash you will see 2 switches. One is for the brake lights and the other is the cruise cancel. Please see the diagram I attached so you know which is which. Unplug the brake light switch and the lights should go out. If they do, then look at the pedal arm. Nissan uses a plug in the brake pedal arm that sometimes breaks. When it does, there is nothing to push on the brake light switch plunger and the brake lights will stay on. You can order a new one from the dealer is this is the case.

If not, get back to me and let me know.

Please let me know what more I can do to assist you today. Also, please remember to rate my answer, Just Answer does not compensate me for my time and resources. Follow up questions are included in the price of your question. If you are using the free trial, or have a subscription a rating is still required.
Thank you so much!

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!
