TAke the light assy off.

...the light assebly can be accessed from inside the bed, if you have a bed liner it must be removed or at least pulled back. there should be two or three large screws on the inside of the bed that need to be removed. the assembley will now be free to move the slack of the wires. a simple twist and then pull will get the light out. Nissan had a recal on tail light assembleys a while back because the lights would loose connection inside the housing, some electrical grease would fix that. or you can take it by your local Nissan dealer and complain until they ablige. take some papoer work with you, recals can be found at ""

Why does the brake light stay on when the Nissan truck engine is off?

I had the same problem. There is a small nipple-typed fitting near the brake pedal under the dashboard. This is the spacer and mechanical silencer for the brake switch. Mine was missing, presumably worn out by age. Only Nissan dealers have this part, for around $5.00. It takes about 30 seconds to replace.Locate the brake switch.Check the area of contact when the switch is released. There should be a hole there.Press the part into the hole.
