SOURCE: 96 NISSAN MAXIMA SHUTS OFF UPON DECELLERATION OR WHEN STOPPED

Check to see if the floor on the passanger side is wet. If so, than your A/C drain clogged up and your ECM/computer got flodded by water causing all sorts of funky stuff happening. Right next to the gas pedal is a small cover attached to the computer. It has a clip in it. Remove the clip and tug on the cover. Look at the top of the computer to see if its rusted up. Remove the other side cover also, which is on passanger side floor next to your left foot(if you sitting in passenger seat). and check other side of ECM/computer. Check the ECM for rust on top.
If ALL of that looks OK, than I would replace the switch,(since you are telling me that the key got VERY hot) that is mounted on the back of the ignition cylinder. Its a white round switch that failes after a while especially car beeing 1996, just think about how many times that ignition has been turned ON/OFF since 1996. The mechanism in the switch failes, causing starting issues and funky electrical issues.
Does the car have a remote starter installed?? Or didi it have one in the past?? I have seen companies that install them cause some damage to the harnesses on the switch that is mounted to the back of the igniton cylinder. They use "scotch locks" to connect the remote starter and after a while the connection corrode and cause problems too.
Anyways, check the computer for rust first. Than I would install that switch on back of the igniton. You can buy the switch seperately. You dont need the whole ignition assembly/switch only. Switch is pretty cheap (approx $50 ?). Try that and post results. I would feel pretty good about the switch beeing faulty. I have ssen them fail in the past and that's where your power comes into for the starter circuit.(key getting HOT, switch shorting out, making the key hot and starting the car without the key)

You need to remove all of the air intake and other things behind the battery. The start motor is held in with two bolts. You might need a breaker bar to break loose the one bold as I did. Once you remove all of the air intake equipment. This will help you gain access to the starter motor. You might not need to remove all the air intake equipment I know it made it alot easier for me to remove the starter and I took it to the auto store and had it tested.

Check your blower motor itself, look for power going into it.

Also check your blower motor resistor.

SOURCE: Would like to recharge my air conditioning on my 2001 nissian maxima that has 117,000 on it blows hot air when air conditioning is turned on.

You will need R134a, and a filler hose. Charge the system on the low pressure side, it should have a blue cap on the charge point.
Your filler hose will only fit the low pressure side, just in case the cap has been removed.

30 amp Starter/Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the ignition key. The instrumentpanel lights are dim and then the fuse blows.


I am assuming you are talking about the circuit that powers the key switch. I'm showing a fuseable link to the starter relay instead of a fuse.
If it is the circuit that powers the switch, I would disconnect the switch and see if the fuse blows as each circuit is powered one at a time using a jumper wire. You can get 30amp circuit breakers that plug into the fuse slot to use while you are testing circuits.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to find out what is powered by that fuse since it is most everything on the car.

Cooling fan keeps blowing a fuse on my 2000 maxima #1 fan. #2 fan works when a/c is turned on


It's is very possible. You may be correct however don't dismiss the wiring. The wiring may intermittently short with movement/vibration and cause fuse to blow but most likely you are correct in thinking that your fan needs replacement.

Problems with 92 nissan maxima backup light burns out meter fuse


Remove the backup bulbs and check again. If the fuse still blows, find the backup switch and see if it has failed and shorts when activated. You may need a Chilton book to locate the switch, it may be on the transmission, or on the gear selector linkage.

98 Nissan maxima. Both headlights went out. Fuses seem to be good. What do I do?


To make it as simple as possible, you only need a (+ 12 volts) positive wire and a (- ground) to make any electrical circuit work. I would guess you have lost your power and the first suspect is the fuse. It is sometimes difficult to look at a fuse and determine its integrity. I would swap in a new fuse first. It is possible to have had both bulbs blow and if you have a test light or meter you can check power at the headlight receptacle. Depending on your expertise it boils down to basically you will have power at the light (bad bulbs ) or no power ( bad fuse or broken wire or headlight switch bad). Just remember when replacing fuses, it must be the correct amperage fuse. If its insufficient, it will immediately blow as soon as you turn on the headlights.
Hope this helps you some.
