Default No lights at all!!!

Hazards & turn signals don't click,headlights & taillights won't come on,heater doesn't work!!!
I checked all the fuses with a tester & they are getting power to them.
I'm gonna check the bulbs but the fact that the hazards & turn signals don't click has me stumped???
Can I have a bad ground somewhere or some kinda bad switch/relay???
Is all this connected somehow???
Thanks Dudes!!!

Sounds kinda like a bad hazard switch.

Did you ever start by looking at the brake lights like I suggested in this thread? http://www.infamousnissan.com/forum/...ad.php?t=24140 . We can figure it out, but you gotta check some stuff and give me some feedback. Start with the brake lights. Then we'll go to the headlights .

ok i figured out that the pink wire will do the taillights. the green and yellow will jus turn the lights on for no reason. Nothings on or anything the lights jus stay on. WHat could it be?

Japanese vehicles do not run the brake lights through the turn signal system like American cars do. Regular trailer lights don't work when directly wired in to the Japanese system.
