I purchased a 1999 Nissan Maxima that was police inpounded. It ad not key's of FOB for it. I had a tranponder key made. But the car still will not start. I purchased a FOB for the car but it does not want to be programed. Is there a way to bypass the anti theft system so that I can start the car and use it? Can you recommed a Nissan Maxima Manual as well? Haynes and Chilton don't have any info on the anti theft for the Nissan.

there is a chip inside your car key some times gets damage or the car computer gets damage and no longer recognize your key chip this causes the anti theft system to prevent the fuel injectors to open and the engine will not start because has no gas.
the security light stain on is your hint of what is going on.
I had the same problem on a 99 Nissan Maxima but i got the car running again what you need to do is replace the engine computer and then call a locksmith to reprogram your key to be recognize by the new computer i when to a lot of pain and suffer to get this solve.
before changing any thing make sure the plastic part of the key is not broken, if it is call your locksmith to make you a new one before changing any thing.
NOTE do not use a computer from a salvage yard unless you get to see the actual car it came from
if it came from a car than has the body in one piece do not buy it
its real hard to diagnose this problem and
chances are it came there because of the same problem you have.
if the car looks like it was in a crash the computer is more likely to be good.
but its always best to get it rebuild or brand new if you can. after you change the computer call the locksmith to get you car key reprogram.
Do not use a computer from a 98 or 2000 because they will not work no mater what the salvage yard tells you they are to make money not to help you so it has to be 99 only.
when you unlock your vehicle with a key fob and hold the button on these models the windows roll down it is possible that your fob might be faulty, remove battery from fob for that night and see if there is any change, receiver inside vehicle may have internal failure, it is not likely that master switch has anything to do with it since it has no power supply with key removed.
1999 Nissan Maxima, car was running shut it off, now won't start, replaced crank sensors, cam sensor, mass air flow, and fuel pump. The security light stays on when cranking, is it possible that the key could be no good, or is their another problem
