Question about 1990 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Locked Out! Have a 1990 Maxima SE, About a year ago someone was tampering with the car and an alarm we did not know about went off. Trunk has not opened since. Inside lever and soonoid in trunk are working, shined flashlight through backseat to verify. Trunk lock mech. was removed before we bought the car, so key to trunk is not a factor. Also, my wife just left the lights on, and battery is dead. Hood release is now locked, so cannot charge battery or start car. help! Jim M

Okay you may want to check to see if the sensor on door lock cylinder hasn't fallen off from the lock itself. Pull of the door panels and check the wires at the door lock cylinder. Hope this helps.

Having the exact same problem right now. Just started two days ago when it snowed. Thinking maybe the cold weather messed up the lock on my trunk. Played with my trunk a bit and seems like my problem went away. I have to keep it locked all the time, but the flashers and alarm stopped for now....

Opening the trunk with the key (not the valet key) will shut off the alarm.

it sounds to me like you have a short or something in your car is using power. You might want to try to pull the fuse for the alarm and leave it out over night, then try the car in the morning and see if it starts. If it does then the problem is in the alarm. My car did that a couple of times and my alarm was the trouble and to replace it. Hope that helps.

Posible throttle assembly/throttle actuator failure. This car has an electronic throttle, not cable operated. We have seen some issues with those and the car will do exactly what you are descibing. Revs up to about 2500 and goes only 10mph. Just a tip.

1990 nissan maxima trunk release switch


Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.
Cheers..
