Hello all,

Havent posted much in here since buying my truck a few years ago. The other day, i noticed my center console lights were out, then noticed tails and license plate lights. So i obviously thought i had a burnt bulb or bad fuse. Well after poking and proding for the last two days and doing many searches on here i still cant get my lights back on. I am getting no power to my tail lights at all. Brake lights, turn signal, reverse etc all work, and no other problems then listed.

Things ive tried-

Switched out relevant fuses just in case
Put in new tail light bulbs
Looked under the truck a bit for exposed wiring...
Disconnected battery
disconnected the nissan wiring jumper in the passenger footwell, and disconnected my 7pin trailer harness under the rear of truck.


About the truck, I did add a shrockworks bumper which has some halogen reverse lights and spliced in license plate lights. My reverse lights work, they grab signal from the rear harness and go to a relay under the dash. Does anyone know if having the dash lights out, mean that the wiring problem has to be up near the dash? Or if you disconnect a tail light bulb, the dash still goes out? I guess how does this dummy console light system work? I know for a fact that my tail light "Grey" wire isnt getting power.

Also does anyone know of any relays to check or any other problem areas?

I just saw this, and yes dash cluster and tail lights/parking lights are on the same circuit. My daughter just had such TAIL fuse blow on her 1998 Pathfinder (turned out to be a bad wire).

If the TAIL fuse looks OK/tests OK with ohmmeter, and there is no positive power to its "hot" side when the key is switched on, then check between the battery and that fuse, may be a fusible link in the path to that.

Yes i did switch both of these fuses out, any leads on fusable links for this circuit between battery and fuse box?

Hey thanks for the link, currently looking through the "PG" section, trying to find what im looking for, no luck yet.

Truck is a 09 Pro 4x, Made an appt for Monday, so i have most of the weekend to hopefully figure this out before then.
