What could cause your dash and tail lights to go out on a 1990 Nissan maxima?

Hey,I have exactly the same problem. My friend, who is a mechanic,took a look at it. We checked the fuses and fuseable links in the engine compartment and the fuses in the interior panel and all was fine. He fixed the ignition switch and checked the contacts, but still no response from the tail or dash lights. After about five hours he gave up. So I'm taking it to a Nissan dealer tomorrow to see if they can diagnose what it is.My advice to you is that its most likely not a fuse or fuseable link. Probably a loose wire. I will repost when I get this problem fixed.AnswerThe mechanic I went to confirmed there was a bad fuse for the tail lights,which I fixed. The instrument panel/dashboard light is still off, suggesting there is probably a short in the wire which I am attempting to locate.
