Your ignition switch contacts are either loose from wear or burned from heat, replace the switch, this is not the key cylinder but the electrical switch that the key switches on.

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima car ran fine till battery was disconnected for several weeks after reconnecting battery car fails to stay started wont idle also clock dosnt work now

I suspect you will need to take the car to Nissan service to reset the ECU. Tell them the problem and let them advise you what they will need to do.

Why when i start my car some time it dosnt start up straight away all the lights on panel is on but the engine wont start up

Lights on the dashboard will show up when the ignition is turned on (when your key is half-way turned). They dont need the engine to be running for them to work.

If your engine wont start, it can be numerous things. It is best to let a mechanic to look at it.

My car turns over but has no spark 1988 OLDSMOBILE 98

If none of your coils are firing then it is possible you have lost the ignition module. It mounts under the coils and is not hard to change. Good Luck

Bad starting

what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
