Check for power at prong at the taillight harness...no power.
Does have power for taillights and signal.

are you checking for power when stepping on the brake pedal?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

Tail lights and directionals are a different circuit than the brake lights. That is why they work.

checking power with brakes depress,

Most of the time if just the outer brake lights are out, it's just the bulbs. Where are you checking power? What color wire?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
green wire with black stripe
checking wire that plugs at taillight

You need to check the Red wire with the Green Stripe to see if that is getting power into the tail lamp assembly. If it is getting power, then you have either a bad tail light sub harness or bad socket causing the brake lights not to work. So you want to pull the tail lamp assembly and check that color wire going to the tail lamp for power. I would unplug the tail lamp and probe the pin for power.

Let me know what you find.
