Disconnect negative battery cable.
Turn the plastic cap counterclockwise to unlock it from the combination lamp.
Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to unlock it.
Unlock the retaining spring and remove the bulb from the combination lamp.
Install in reverse order of removal.
CAUTION: After installing the bulb, be sure to install the plastic cap securely to ensure watertightness.
#87 of 92 1999 Maxima Elec Prob HELP!!
Apr 02, 2013 (5:45 am)
1999 Maxima has elec prob trying to diag. Brake lights stay on only when headlights are on at night. Changed brake switch already. When brake pedal is depressed at night, front yellow parking lights come on, interior panel lights go dim and brake lights only slightly increase in brightness but remain on when brake pedal pressure removed. When I depress brake very slightly, I hear a clicking sound that can be heard under the gear shifter in the center console. Any ideas as to what problem(s) may exist and how to repair???
Thanks for feedback.
#88 of 92 electrical issue?
Jun 11, 2013 (1:38 am)
I am the owner of a 1991 Nissan maxima sedan, recently my brake lights would not go off, I changed the brake switch, no change,so I pulled the fuse so not to wear down the battery, well now my audio system don't work,fuse is good, ( I have 2 extra wires coming out of fuse panel, not too sure where they are to hook in at)also the clock only work's when it want's too,any clues as to what is going on here? the car runs pretty good for 163,000 miles on it, ran better before I got new plugs n wires put on, also whenever I hit a bump in the road, there is a clank noise coming from the driver's side front, I replaced the tie rod, any clue as to what that is?
I am on a fixed income and brought the car with me from Florida, and it seems like I am replacing a lot of stuff on it already, have put over $3,000 in it already, and have been ripped off from Machanic in Virginia, please can anyone help.? Tenac

On many cars there is a "pedal stopper pad" and if this falls out, that could also cause your brake light switch to stay on.
You might crawl back under there and see if there's a hole in the pedal stem rather than a stopper.

I'm having these same issues. Did you ever find out what was causing the headlight to turn off and the radio/clock issues?? Mine turns on, freezes, then un freezes. Headlight turns on when it wants to. Very strange. Help!!

#92 of 92 Speedometer sticks to 41mph after car gets moving
Sep 26, 2013 (4:20 am)
The symptom is that once the car starts moving, the speedometer goes to 41mph and just stays there. The odometer works and there are no other electrical problems that I can see.
I have read many of the forum posts and have already disassembled the dashboard, tightened the four brass screws on the back of that console.
I have already replace the speedometer sensor and $132 later still no joy.
Is it time to replace the entire console?
What do you think?
