The taillights are on a separate circuit from the headlights. If the dash lights aren't coming on either it's probably a fuse, but why did the fuse blow in the first place. If the next fuse blows immediately, check for a damaged wire or bulb socket.

There is also a pinkish relay attached to the passenger side taillight, Check and make shure it works.

check the main feed fusible link you cant go by visual inspection the fuse is inside the plastic case of the link where you cant see it I fought this problem for weeks and I replaced the fusible link and bingo problem solved!

Why does the brake lights constantly stay on for a Nissan Pulsar lx?

It is because the brake light switch under the brake pedal is faulty. usually replacing this will solve the problem. it is designed in such a way that when the brake pedal is depressed the switch completes a circuit and the lights come on. the fault occurs when the switch closes the circuit even though the pedal is not depressed. hope this helps.
