The tail lights and dash lights are not coming on. Any suggestions on how I can fix this on my 2005 Nissan Sentra? I am not sure what controls the lights, tail lights, and dash light. How do I fix this?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Lee, I would take a look at your fuse 38 10amp fuse, this is your disable link box ( left front of engine compartment). You also have a fuse block located left front side of dash with a schematic to ensure no fuses are blown.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Start with changing the fuses. Look in your owners manual to find the location and functions of the fuses. If that doesn't fix it, you'd have to take it in for an electrical inspection.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Both circuits are controlled by the headlight switch. I would start with checking the fuses. If the fuses are good, have the headlight switch checked for proper inputs and outputs. It is a common failure on these vehicles, although there could be other issues going on.
