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!
It is probably the dimmer switch. The contacts in the switch will get pushed back and when you switch to dims they will not touch. Had the same problem on my 91 Nissan.
The problem with the Nissan Elgrand if it does not start when the switch is on could be a mechanical problem.
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
Most likely the headlight switch on the column, all the light circuits run through the switch, the switch has contacts in it that seem to wear out over time.
the headlight switch is bad buy a new one it would fix your problem..
There is no switch to activate or deactivate the brake lights on a 1988 Nissan. The brake lights automatically turn on any time the brakes are pressed.
The reverse light switch is stuck or defective.
You may have to replace the headlight switch since your tail lights are tied into the same switch.
Check the light control switch mounted on the steering column. The copper or brass switch block is not making contact.
I don't know about the headlight yet, my truck has the same problem. but about the parking lights. your switch is bad, mine is too. i just bypassed it with a new switch that i put into the dash.

I had an 85 same problem with lights had to replace the switch on steering column about 150.00 for part from Nissan
I am having this same problem. The lights for the license plate don't work either. I have had two mechanics suggest to me that I replace the HeadLight Switch. I am thinking about ordering one on Monday.
The brake lights in your 1983 Nissan pickup truck are controlled by the brake light relay switch. When the brake light relay switch malfunctions the brake lights will stop working.
Check the brake switch under your pedal (which needs to be pushed when the brake pedal is depressed). This is what the problem was on my friends Sentra. As long as you have checked the lights and fuses, this should do it.
My BMW is doing the same thing I believe it is a bad light switch.
Possible problem with power from igition switch.
The brake switch for a Nissan Quest should be under the dash on the brake pedal arm. If the switch goes bad then the brake lights could stay on or not work at all.
The brake light switch on a Nissan is located just behind the brake pedal. It sends a signal to the brake lights when the pedal is pressed to turn them on.
Try removing bulbs from all exterior lights turn switch on to see if fuse blows--if not replace one bulb at a time to determine where problem is. If fuse blows without bulbs could very well be switch "dead shorted" to ground IM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM SO IF YOU FIGURE IT OUT PLEASE LET ME KNOW AT GODLIVERKILLA@YAHOO.COM A mechanic told me that the switch that is on the column is usually the problem. Cost about 70.00 . Raygracik@msn.com
Those tail lights could be the brake lights you are seeing and that would be a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is out of adjustment.
You either got a bad new Switch or more likely you have a power supply problem to the park side of the switch.
check reverse light switch on transmission.
I have a 1995 Nissan sentra and the brake lights were stuck on because of a switch that broke above the brake. the mechanic said it happens to alot nissans
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.
there is a switch on the console between the seats by the emergency brake.....
