With or without ABS? Or does the master cylinder have two or four lines coming out it? I have a feeling you have a bad masterclinder. The lines on a non abs are cross proportional, meaning one front and one rear are supplied fluid by one part of the master and the other two are supplied by the other. Try cracking the lines loose on the master cylinder and pressing down on the brake pedal. Try this for ll the lines making sure to tighten the fitting before letting up on the pedal ( just like if you where bleeding the brakes at the wheels). If no luid comes out than you just confirmed a bad mastercylinder.

SOURCE: brake light on nissan maxima 1997

First check your brake fluid. It may be low. If its low, have your brakes checked, they may be worn out and you may need brakes. If the master cylinder is tottaly empty, than you may have a leak. Here is a quick test for the E-brake switch. Look at the "brake light" while its on and pul on the e-brake while you are holding the release button in the handle. Pump the e-brake lever repeadetly and observe the "brake light" if it gets brighter and dimmes as you are pumping the e-brake lever., than the swithc is OK and you have a low brake fluid level. Hope this helps. let me know what you find.

SOURCE: no sparks from spark plugs in the 97 nissan maxima wont start up

This car has seporate coil packs for each cylinder, have you tried swapping the front bad one with a good one to see if they switch ?
The engine you just put in may have come with some blown coils.
Hope this helps

1995 Maxima/ rear right brake not working/ new caliper,rotor,pads,and rubber line getting fluid when bleeding


I guess my first question would be are you getting a strong fluid flow at the bleeder screw ? Keep in mind I am not there in person - you should have an equalizer valve, probably in the master cylinder that could be restricting flow. Is there a chance something is going on with the ABS system ?

I have a 96 nissan maxima it won't go into park


Most likley problem is your brake light switch. go underneath the dash to the brake pedal and depending on wether you have cruise control or not ther will be one or two sensors there. the black sensor should be the brake light switch. disconnect and jump the connector with a paper clip and see if the brake lights comeon and the shifter will move.

I put 2 front brakes shoes on my 1995 Nissan Maxima,what is the correct way to bleed my brakes?Is their any order that i need to follow?


Did you open the bleeder screws at all. If not you may not need to bleed the brakes just pump the pedal to bring the caliper pistons out and your pedal should feel fine. If you just want to blled anyways open all your bleeder srews and as the fluid level in your brake master cylider goes down refill with new dot 3 brake fluid (do not alow the master cylider to drain completely). Close bleeders when you get clean fluid through. Start at passenger rear corner and have a buddy press the brake pedal down. open bleeder, close bleeder after squirt of fluid then have buddy release pedal. Do this a couple of time per corner. Go from pass rear to drivers rear then pass. front ending with driver front. You just flushed your brake fluid. Hope this helps.

96 nis max rear break dont work


Sounds like you have a blockage in the brake line going to the back breaks...maybe a kink in the brake line or maybe the junction piece (found attached to the bell housing in the back) that sends brake fluid to both breaks in the back is bad. Or your rear breaks need to be adjusted... I would say brake cylinders, but I doubt both would go out at the same time. Also check to make sure your master cylinder is working ok and there is no air in the line...try bleeding the back brakes to see if any fluid is getting to the brake cylinders in the back, this will tell you if you have a kink in the line or air...if it bubbles when you check (bleed the lines) then your problem is air in the line and should be bled until you get a solid flow of break fluid with no bubbles at all. If you want to know how to bleed the rear break just write me back and I will instruct you on how to do that.

Hey..GM..96 Nissan maxima...There is a Plastic Reservior on the Left Side with has a Blk Cap just before the Frt Struts..I need to ID this Part. If you are facing the windshield and must Refill...Plz...


The cap you are referring to is the clutch master cylinder. You use the same fluid as you do for the brakes. DOT 3 brake fluid. Do not over fill. There is are marks on the side of the reservoir showing minimum and maximum. I hope this is sufficient to answer your question. ....mybunkey

Brake problem


Do you have a leak? If not try bleeding the ones that don't work. If you get no fluid pressure, replace the master cylinder.
