Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I had a new battery put in my 1997 Nissan Maxima.

Now the radio does not turn on and the clock does not light inside the car. Is this a fuse issue? I never had a radio problem before or having the clock not light.

Thanks

    I had a jump start on my 1996 maxima. After the jump start the dashboard clock is fine. The radio/CD/cassette was working fine for about 10 minutes and then i powered off it and now the power is not coming to the radio/cd/cassette. I have a Bose system. All the fuses are good. Please help me before I spend lot of money on replacing a new radio.
    Appreciated

No this is not a fuse issue,more ecu related,once battery is disconnected,ecu's tend to scramble in memory banks,causing lots of problems,try having ecu checked and reprogrammed.

1996 nissan maxima ever since I put in a new battery the radio and clock do not work. checked fuses all are fine.


Hi,

If this is still the factory head unit then you need to reenter the security code so that it will operate again.
As for the clock, you may have a faulty connector or blown back light bulb. The clock maybe working but you cant see it as the backlighting is not working.

Thanks

997 Nissan Maxima - clock is dark, switched fuse but still dark. How can I remove the clock for replacement?


More than 1 fuse on that car can power the clock. Check all the fuses and replace any bad ones.

The car just stopped one day. The lights on the inside will not come on, no radio, and no head lights. I put in a new battery and had the altenator tested. That came back good. The fuses are all good.


Check the mechanical condition of the battery cables; I have seen cables more than once that appeared OK but battery acid had crept under the plastic insulation and dissolved the copper inside.
I confess that this normally shows up first with hard starting or noticeable dimming of the headlights when other accessories are turned on but you have done the other things I would have checked already so it's time to check the cables coming off the battery at both ends.

You do need an alternator. Nissan has a campaign on Maxima alternator in certain years such as 96-98 I believe. Go to your friendly Nissan dealer abd have them punch your VIN number into the NNA net. they will know and that will tell them if your vehicle applies by the VIN. I have seen the alternator on fire. There was fire inside of the alternator. Have it checked or the car can catch on fire.
