Default Both my headlights and tail lights stopped working simultaneously

Hey guys so i made this account cause my 2003 nissan 350z is giving me a headache.

Currently my headlight (hid with ballasts) and tail lights have all stopped working plus my front right high beam is also blacked out.

I have changed all bulbs and ballasts and that has not solved my issues. I know where both my fuses boxes are (behind the battery and one by the kick panel)

So I'm guessing its a fuse/relay?

Some help would be greatly appreciated

If I remember correctly, the fuse box in your driver's side kick panel contains a fuse for the lights. I'd check that fuse. More than likely that is it.

Do you have a idea which one it might be? Are all those lights really connected to one or two fuses?

Get a copy of the Service Manual for your model year at https://nicoclub.com/archives/nissan...e-manuals.html.

The lt.pdf section describes the lighting and the pg.pdf section contains details of the fuse blocks.

Hopefully, the OP realizes there's a chart to all the fuses displayed on the back of the fuse box cover.

If i remember correctly the fuses for the exterior lighting is under the wiper cowl near the battery. You will need to remove the battery cover and passenger wiper cowl to access it. Quite a few years ago i blew a fuse trying to install led's and took a while to find the 3rd fuse box.

Yes, there is 3 Fuse Boxes.

The lighting exterior is in the 3rd Fuse Box hidden behind the battery. You must remove the battery. Only then will you see it. I think it was a 15 AMP, I know it was red... it's only 1 fuse. The highbeam is a separate fuse, also located in the third fuse box. This happened to me so I can relate.
