Sounds as if you need the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The contacts inside are most likely worn out.

SOURCE: Gear Shift gets stuck on Maxima 2001

The gear shift electrical relay or module inside it is not reading the signal to release. You need to have the electronic relay or module repaired or the gear shift assembly replaced.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 nissan Maxima. trouble codes are:

Hi, the car is winding out due to a vacuum leak. Not sure if the misfire is related or not. I would start at cylinder 1, though. I would check all vacuum lines attached to the intake manifold, especially around #1. Replace any cracked or hardened hoses. If all lines are good, then I would check for an intake manifold leak. With the engine idling, spray some carb cleaner on the intake gaskets especially around cylinder #1. If the engine speed changes, you have a leaky gasket. If none of these ideas panned out, I would start checking the purge valve and other valves along the lines that attach to the intake manifold, but this sounds like a pretty big leak you should find quickly. Please let me know if you have questions or need any instructions, and thanks for using fixya.

What trouble code is P0300


The code indicates a "random misfire." It means the egine is occassionally misfiring. Often it is due to worn spark plugs or a defective ignition coil that no longer produces a strong spark.

  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)

1996 nissan maxima random misfire


I'm confused! The heading on this question says 2004 Saturn Ion and the question itself says 1996 Nissan Maxima.

Doesn't matter much. The answer is the same for both. There are MANY things that can cause misfires. It could be spark plugs and wires. It could be ignition coils, it could be cylinder head gasket failures. It could be vacuum leaks. It could be broken or burnt valves. It could be faulty injectors....The list goes on, but I think you probably get the point by now.

Anyway, "Random cylinder misfire" simply means that you have more than one cylinder that is misfiring. It could be two cylinders misfiring or it could be ALL of the cylinders misfiring at times, or any combination in-between.

Proper diagnosis required.

Will a bad knock sensor cause a misfire. car is missing change the plugs no help codes are misfire and knock senser sometimes a #2 o2 sensor. 1999 maxima thanks for your help.


A Bad Knock Sensor will not cause a misfire, unless the advance is off due to a faulty Knock Sensor. The O2 Sensor will cause a random misfire.

Good luck on this repair.

My service engine light blinks on and off and then stops my car in severely shaking and then stops what does this mean?


The most likely cause would be a random multiple misfire due to a bad ignition coil.

Enigine shaking and rough take off


If the plug wires were off there's a good chance that you have fouled a spark plug or two causing the engine to misfire making it shake. It sounds like a good tune-up might be in order.
