Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Do I count from top to bottom left to right I can get a tool if I need it
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

there should be small numbers on the panel or in the user manual or cover

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The only numbers are for the fuses and the Manuel only shows a picture of the fuse box with nothing labled the panel shows what the fuse is for but none of them indicate lights of any kind same thing for the one under the hood
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

ok ill try to find some diagrams while im doing that look at this one its under hood and check fuse 36

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The fuse box under the hood only has seven fuses 3 15a and 4 10a it's only about 2in wide and 8in long and they are all good
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The one on the side of the dash looks like the second diagram and they are good
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

so after that you will need to get a voltmeter for some electrical testing and we can really get to the bottom of the problem

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I do have a volt meter. What do I need to check. I was a field tech with att for 30 years so I have some testing knowledge
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

so I need to know whats working and whats not on the rear and then I can tell you what to check

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The turn signals and the brake lights and the backup lights work in the rear. No fog lights and no taillights
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

ok so I need you to verify power at 36 fuse under hood and see if your getting power
