DON'T REPLACE YOUR BREAK LIGHT SWITCH YET...

the 98 frontier break arm (what the pedal is attached to) has a MANUFACTURED "hole" through it that will allow the plunger of the break light switch to pass right thru. There is supposed to be a rubber "button" snapped into this hole, however, over time, dry rot and age will cause it to fall out. When this "snap in" button falls out, your break lights will stay on till the battery dies. This is another shining example of DTF engineering. (design to fail) Most cars now are filled with these little parts and they're purpose is to generate revenue.

Your break switch probably works.
1. look in the floor board for the button that fell out, it's about the same size as a button off your shirt.
2 Slide your hand up the break pedal arm till you find the "hole" I'm referring to. (you'll know it when you feel it)
3 Tape the damn button back into the hole with electrical tape, or tape a shirt button over the hole. that will work for a little while.
** remember ** if you are driving with break lights in this condition (on all the time)...no one knows when you're really stopping!!!

you can get a snap in rubber grommet to replace it at most hardware stores (I don't even want to know what Nissan would charge for this little part.)

**note** replacing it is easy if you start the truck first (power breaks) and have someone hold the pedal while you work on it!

sometimes its the simple things. On the foot pedal for the clutch are rubber grommets that push the switch in on the manual trans. they get old and fall off or develop holes in them so the switch does not get depressed.

I have the same issue, rebuilt the tranny and replaced the solenoid, checked electrical and functionality of soleniod and I am still having the same problem.

I notice it happens in the 50-60 mph range. If I le the truck warm up then hit the road and quickly excellerate to 65 or above and stay there I can go with out any trouble. If I should forget and run in the 50 to 60 MPH range, I will get the code. if I drive that way a second time, the MIL will come on showing P1776 twice.

Belts squeal on 1998 Nissian Frontier

I have a 1998 Nissian Frontier, 2.4 liter, 4 cyl, 4x4. Belts squeal on start up for a few minutes. Is there a way to fix this problem? I have changed the belts, the pulleys, new hardware, and new brackets and nothing works for more than a few days. I have put brake fluid on the belts since its water based and shouldn't destroy the belt but that is only a 1 day fix. Any suggestions?

Squeal belts usually mean not enough tension. I have had problem with persistance squeling in the past, the problem turn out to be cheap aftermarket belt that keep stretching and wouldn't maintain proper tension, putting brake fluid or any kind of oily liquid on your belt will make it worst not better.

You most likely need to replace your brake switch, which is a
a $8 part. If you look up along the brake peddle you will see it depressing a switch. on the end of that switch is a electrical connector that you can press on one side to remove.
Once removed your brake lights will be disconected and your ABS
light should go off. You then need to replace the switch that it pluged in to.
