Taillights, tail lamps, or as Nissan calls them "rear combination lamps", combine the running lights, reverse lights, brake lamps (stop lights) and turn-signal lamps (blinkers).

Troubleshooting

Inoperative rear taillights, Turn Signal lights, or brake lights? Check for adequate grounding/earthing of the plastic combination lamp assembly.

Service Bulletin
24397.jpgAlbum 24397

1. Check the metal-to-metal contact of the ground wire (black) from the right side tail light assembly at the grounding post on the panel inside the trunk area. Remove any paint or dirt that prevents good contact

Sedan

Coupe
24399.jpgAlbum 24399

2. Using an ohmmeter, check the ground wire (black) from the harness in the engine compartment to the battery negative post for continuity to the instruments and lights of the vehicle. If continuity is lacking, repair the break or replace the wire

3. A heavy gauge ground strap connecting the engine to the body of the vehicle assures proper grounding. The ground strap is built into the original negative battery cable

Part Numbers

See Coupe Rear Combination Lamp Part Numbers
* Japan and North America both use Red lenses (no amber)
* the red lenses differ, presumably in reflective pattern
* the center section has two bulbs (Japan) or one bulb (NA)
  Therefore the assembly housing and Harness differ
All other parts are the same (Bulbs, Rim, Packing, white reverse Lens)

Reflectors

In most countries, reflecting surfaces are built-into the rear lamps.

For those countries where they are not, or where a bigger relector is required -- such as Australia and Kenya -- separate rear reflectors were added:

Third Brake Lamp

Center High Mount Stop Lamp (CHMSL) a.k.a. 3rd brake light can be adapted to the 1200, or a "universal" fitted. USA data indicates a long-term enduring crash-reduction benefit of 4.3%.

2554.jpgAlbum 2554

Mandatory for new cars
* United States and Canada since 1986
  light trucks since 1994
* Australia and New Zealand since 1990
* Many European countries since 1998
Google search: third brake light

North America Notes

USA regulates the wattage, color and placement of the tail lights.

Canada generally adopts the same standards as USA.

USA "Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108 [1968] allows rear turn signals to be either red or amber in color... amber signals show a 5.3% effectivenss in reducing involvement in two-vehicle crashes where a lead vehicle is rear-struck in the act of turn left, turning right, merging into traffic, changing lanes, or entering/leaving a parking space. The advantage of amber rear turn signals is shown to be statistically significant." -- NTSHA document.

Nevertheless, amber was slow in coming. Even in the 1990s red rear turns signals are commonplace. The Nissan Altima even changed three times, from Amber to Red to Amber and back to red.

"In Europe and many other countries, rear turn signals are required to be amber. Currently [2009], manufacturers ... [for] North American markets choose whether to produce [amber or red rear turn signals]." -- NTSHA document.
