My BMW is doing the same thing I believe it is a bad light switch.
The lights need to be taken out with a screwdriver Phillips usualy
REPLACE THE PASS SIDE HEADLIGHT
Because you have bad lights.
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.
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.
headlight switch is bad

how do you change the tail lights on a 1996 Nissan pick up?
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.

Check the radio/Acc fuse...
the headlight switch is bad buy a new one it would fix your problem..
There is likely a problem with either the headlight switch or the associated circuit.
You may have to replace the headlight switch since your tail lights are tied into the same switch.
Try replacing the headlight switch, it has the dimmer built into it.
It controls the headlights, dash lights, tail lights and park lights. You don't repair it you replace it.
blown fuse, bad wire, bad bulb....
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.
Yes! I did this to a 1994 Nissan 4x4. But you will also have to buy the headlights and marker lights. The metal behind the grill is all the same between the pathfinder and pickup truck from back then. The only other thing you will have to do is change the plugs on the end of the wiring harness for the lights but it is really simple.
I had to remove the front grill (slotted screw driver to turn the plastic clips 90 degrees, also had to take off the side running lights (philips screw driver) in order to get the head lamp out.
Try checking the fuse for the brake lights. If all of your brake lights went out at the same time, this is most likely the problem.
Bad headlight switch
I had a similar problem with my S70 and discovered the headlight switch was defective. The switch had actually begun to separate causing the contacts for the tail lights not to make contact. Try having someone observe the tail lights while you push on the headlight switch. If the tail lights begin to work, replace the headlight switch.
Had the same problem with mine. Jiggled the headlight switch and now they work. I suspect the headlight switch is going.
and that didnt fix the problem?
