Try cleaning the ground wire on drivers side of the core support on the very top. All these items are on the same fuse so disconnect them one at a time till you find it... guages,warning light, turn signal, back up lamp, seat belt timer, inhibitor switch, and rear window defogger. I would check the back up lamp and the defogger first.

Short in the wiring. If you have a trailer wiring harness check it for frayed wires. The tailight circuit and the dash lights share a circuit on many vehicles. I hope this helps you. Mark

I had the same problem with my 95 pathfinder, fix by checking all of the connections on the wiring harness that run by the rear bumper to the fuel pump on top of the gas tank. Mine were salty and dirty.

When making any electrical changes to the wiring of a car, it is important to have a diagram. A diagram for the factory stereo wiring of a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder can be found in the maintenance manual.

Are you blowing fuses or are the bulbs blowing? Blowing fuses would be a sign of any wires or metal contacts in your brake circuit grounding out or shorting on themselves. You'll have to check all of the wiring in your brake light/switch circuit to be sure.

Hey LaMarcus==There is a short somewhere. You need to get a wiring diagram as I am quite sure the radis is supposed to be on a separate fuse not wired with the lights. GoodluckJoe

What layout - wiring, engine/tranny? fuel hose path?????

Try this web site. It might be of some use to you. Regards Dave

Must be that you are using the old speaker wiring that is COMMON GROUND wired. Aftermarket Radio will not like that sort of wiring for speakers. You need to run new wires at least to the rear speakers or I would do all 4 just cause the wiring is old.

If the fuse keeps blowing then there is a short somewhere in the wiring. The best thing to do is recheck the wiring on the wiper motor, switches, and relays.
