Stoplight Switches

No Start Condition for Nissan/Infiniti Applications with Automatic Transmissions

For vehicles equipped with keyless ignition systems, a no start condition can be caused by a faulty stoplight switch. These vehicles require the brake pedal to be depressed before pressing the engine start button for the engine to start. If the brake light switch is defective, the engine will not start.

How to Diagnose

An easy way to diagnose is to have someone press the brake pedal while you stand behind the vehicle and check to see if the brake lights illuminate. If the lights do not illuminate, they could be the cause of the no start condition.

A Solution for Faulty Stoplight Switches

If the stoplight switch is the cause of the no start condition, we are your source for quality manufactured stoplight switches. With more than 300 SKUs available, we provide comprehensive coverage for import and domestic applications. For a sense of the design and manufacturing that goes into our stoplight switches, take a look at our SLS370:

Circuitry is designed to withstand electrical over-stress conditions such as reverse polarity, ESD transients, and jump start voltage extremes

100% tested during manufacturing for electronic component assembly and wire bond connectivity

100% tested prior to shipping for continuous current load, quiescent current, voltage drop,
pull-in current, voltage and hysteresis

Copper terminals with aluminum inlay keep electrical resistance low and still provide benefits for wire bonding and corrosion protection

Heatsink is made from aluminum for excellent corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity

TechSmart® Key Fobs

Most modern vehicles come with the option for a keyless entry, also known as a ‘Key Fob’. The problem is that these transmitters drop, break, get lost, rubber buttons wear, contacts inside become corroded and the plastic case can crack.

TechSmart® offers a complete line of keyless entry transmitters providing a high-quality, cost effective solution to replace the damaged or lost original. Remember to always follow OE reprogramming instructions to ensure that your TechSmart® keyless entry transmitter works in harmony with your vehicle.
