2002 Nissan Maxima SE dash lights, tail lights, and radio not working

Asked by May 30, 2014 at 01:35 AM about the 2002 Nissan Maxima SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima SE. I recently changed the alternator. They disconnected the battery to do the repair. Now, my dash lights (speedometer, gauges, etc) and tail lights do not work. Also, my radio does not light up or even turn on. I have checked almost every fuse and can't figure it out. I also replaced the relay fuse that is connected to the battery positive end, and nothing. Can someone help?!?!?!?

I have also tried the obvious and checked to make sure that the dimmer switch was not turned all the way down in the interior and it was not.

Ground where? I've checked all the fuses under the dash and under the hood, unless I'm missing something?

If your car runs,and i assume it does,they might have shorted something,out and caused your problem,check your bulbs,may have blowed all them and your stereo.If they are good ,better go looking for a burnt wire.

It runs, but if it is just the bulbs blown out, then what's wrong with the dash lights?
