Lights Lights And No Action :(


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys

I have a weird issue with my lights.

Car has fog lights installed, and when i turn my headlights on the rear lights dont work and the dash lights dont work but the front lights work fine.

Then when i turn on the fog lights the rear and dash lights turn on.

At times i can start hitting the dash and the lights will turn on without having fog lights on.

any one got any ideas ????

a fuse maybe,

im thinking its a loose wire or connection :S :S

The dash lights have been changed to emitt a bluish glow. (as seen in my avatar)

Any help would be good

Nissan's (Navara and Patrols were what I worked on) over time tend to wear out the brass contacts in the light switches. Its a matter of pulling the switch apart and having a look at it - if you know what your doing usually you can fix it. These contacts make contact on and off which will do what your describing.

Either Borrow a new switch and see what it does, or if your keen pull apart your old one and see if you can see burnt marks on the contacts - use a bit of wet and dry sand paper to clean the points... and NEVER bend them too far otherwise you fark the switch.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
