Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

2003 Nissan Maxima would not start,

2003 Nissan Maxima would not turn over, even though there was a new battery and power to headlights, dash interior, power seats, etc. This has happened on three occasions now, once after the car was turned off at the gas station, once after coming out of the store and once at work. In all occasions it was very cold outside and the car had been running for at least 20 minutes before it was shut off. This issue was taken to the dealer for correction after the first and second occurrence. After the second occurrence, the dealer change the battery (a new battery had been installed two year prior along with a new alternator). Seems to be a moisture related electronic problem. Go figure...

Sounds like the starter, you can try tapping it with an insulated tool 2-5 times before you try starting it

1996 nissan maxima has no dash lights and no tail lights all fuses are good

The only thing that both circuits use is the headlight switch.
I would start there checking for power on those two circuits.
The tail lights are actually parking lights so the front and back are on the same circuit.

it sounds like you may have a bad ignition switch, check all the main fuses 20 and 30amp under the hood also check body ground straps, otherwise you will need to remove the plastic cover around the steering colum and using a test light check for power to each wire at the ignition switch , every wire will have voltage in some position of the key being turned
