I would check for a blown fuse there should be one just for the fuel pump. If the fuse is good I would look for a bad or lose wire.

SOURCE: brake lights won't shut off, 1987 nissan

I would think that the brake switch which is connected to the brake pedal might be damaged, causing it to always have contact. They are usually not very expensive. Please rate this if it helps. Thanks.

Band adjustment, how many turns out on 1987 300zx

Transmission Bands are adjusted when you rebuild a trans

They do not wear enough to need adjustment

Two things happen

If you turn the screw the wrong way, parts fall inside the trans
& you can't get it back together

Next-- if you need to adjust the band or bands, it is time for a rebuild, as many many parts are worn, long before the slightest band wear.

96 300zx. What would cause a steering dead zone?

Could be the steering rack is worn out. But there is some adjustment I believe.

But before you try to adjust the rack, make sure the tierod ends are not loose, there is no play in and out on the steering shaft, and there is plenty of power steering fluid.
