Check your brake lights? Also if you replaced your bulb with non OEM one that light will appear. OEM bulbs use a different wattage and why the warning light come on.

It's your brake lights. You should go a replace them with new OEM brake lights that you buy from the Nissan dealer not Pep boys. This will solve your problem.

A warning light generally means that something is wrong that needs to be fixed. If you are going to cover or disconnect one warning light you might as well just cover every warning light in your dash and run the car til it dies. I mean seriously, do you people not care about keeping your vehicles in good running order? If I cared enough to post on a message board about it, I'd probably care enough to try to fix it right.

It was probably replaced with the incorrect bulb or an LED bulb which will also set off the warning light (voltage draw too low). These are pretty common mistakes.
