I pulled the unit out and check the ground and all the wires. Open the door and it comes on. Not sure how she would react to a smoke filled cabin and would be concerned if she could get out if it happened again and flames up. I do not like to drive with my kids in the car for fear that the car will not stop again or that there will be a collision because of the jerky movements and the cars hesitation. The tail light fuse is located in the underhood fuse box on the passenger side of the vehicle. Once the leading edge fasteners were free the two metal clips at the rear of the assembly were easy to remove. I have to drive to get to work and to get the kids to school.
I have a Nissan 2005 maxima kerwin. Upon researching online other vehicle have had same issue. Both will need to be replaced. When I put the car in drive it jerks very hard. It doesn't matter what speed you are driving, it jerks and launches forward at will. I have changed both of them bank 1 and bank 2 and it did not fix anything. Wait a minuet or 2 then feel the top of each relay in fuse box and elsewhere.
The vehicle was not able to be restarted. The fire had somehow contained itself and self-extinguished. My service record is quite extensive on the electrical problems associated with this one vehicle. Then my air condition went out, it was my air compressor took it in to the Nissan dealership to get it fix, after, a week or two it went out again took it back to the dealership to get it looked at I was told it needed a part some type of clip. Later smoke came pouring out of center dash. I have a two year old and the jerking of the car or anything for that matter is not safe for her or anyone else on the road. The inherent danger to myself as the owner, passengers, pedestrians, other vehicles is of paramount concern in consideration of operating this vehicle.
The fire melted that panel to the floorboard and spread around the steering column, around the ignition and slightly up to the upper dashboard right side , again causing the dash to melt. There is a long hesitation before the car begins to drive after being put in gear to drive. My auto repair person researched this and found this problem has been well known to Nissan. If on is hot, tap with screwdriver handle to see if it releases and motor stops running. My insurance covered the cost of the repairs and the repairs took place. However they do light up when braking, but only the left one.
Cheers, Ken Electrical problem 2003 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 160080 miles When either turn signal is initiated both flash as if my hazards were on.

We really hope you can accept it as one of your reference and many thanks for your time for browsing our webpage. The dealer stated that they replaced two wires under the driver's seat.
The lumbar switch was recalled in 2006. I do not know if these electrical issues relate to the electrical fire. Stock : B140937405G Description: Fuse Box 3. A little more wiggling and the switch fell apart. I called my Nissan dealership to find out that the switch is not sold separately. But that did not work.
So I'm assuming there is a short somewhere in the wiring for the hitch or somewhere in the system. Stock : B177781967M Description: Fuse Box 3. No air bags came on. The car keeps making sudden violent jerking movements while driving creating a potential hazard for a car accident. The current mileage was 125,000 and the failure mileage was unavailable.
Nissan has diagnosed this problem. Also if you switch over to manual it will say you're in 5th gear and really you're in 1st. The contact observed that the mileage increased by more than 1,300 miles and the carpet was dyed a different color. I have pictures of damages. My lumbar switch was repaired in April of 2006.
The recall states the lumbar switch wiring could become pinched and cause a fire. A recall should be done before someone gets seriously hurt or killed. And my car also has a hitch, which I do not use. It turns off while I'm driving it and I lose all power power steering, brakes, etc. When I open the door my window was full of sut and my windshield was cracked. The lights worked and no matter how many times I moved the car around or opened and closed the doors the fuse remained good.
