Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
If the brake lights are staying on, that is most likely a Brake switch down by the brake pedal inside the car. That switch is like 30 bucks.
Keep in mind, you have two switches down at the brake pedal. One is the Cruise Control Cancel switch, the other is the Brake light switch. So if the brake lights are staying on, Unplug 1 switch and see if the lights go out. If they don't, then unplug the other. If they go out, then that is the Brake switch and that is what will need to be replaced..
That is how it's secured so you can remove it and replace it.
It has to be the switch.. That is the only thing.. Try unplugging both switches at the brake pedal and see if the brake lights go out
Hang on, let me pull up the wiring diagram..
Also.. You know it's the brake lights cause the 3rd brake light comes on also right?
Oh.. Did you check to see if the right bulbs are install?
Did you install LED's? Anything after market on the car?
I have seen where if you have the wrong bulbs installed, it feeds back through the electrical system. That is why I am asking. Fuse 19 if for the Directional. So something in backfeeding cause they are two totally different circuits...
3057's is what the Tail light/Brake light bulbs should be. The 3rd brake light is 194's
another thing you can do is disconnect one tail lamp at a time.. The issue could be with in that tail lamp sub harness.
As I said, fuse 19 is for the directionals. Which shares those bulb sockets.
What about both unplugged and monitoring the 3rd brake light to see if that responds properly from the brake switch?
Sure.. But I will be going to bed shortly, So if you reply, I will reply as soon as I can tomorrow.. OK?
Did you unplug each tail light and see if the 3rd brake light worked properly? Anything after market in the car?
Sorry? I don't understand.. What did you do?
Really, was there anything in there? Normally change can fall in to that white box?
Take it out and shake it.. If there is change in it, can back feeds the cluster and can cause all sorts of whacky electrical issues.
Perfect.. Thanks for the update and glad you resolved your issue.
