Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima

4 Answers

2003 Nissan Maxima will not start.

2003 Nissan Maxima would not turn over, even though there was a new battery, 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 (-25oC) 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 first occurance (two years ago) the battery and alternator were changed. After second occurrence, (a few weeks ago) the battery wast changed.

I got Nissan Maxima Stouring 2003, the fuel gauge was not reading and so I ran on dry tank, now I have refilled the tank yet it has refused to start, the ejector has been cleansed of possible dirt yet it is not starting despite the dashboard comes on with full lights showing the battery is very okay. What could be the problem?

I sounds like it may be time for a starter replacement. These starters are a one piece solenoid/starter combo, and after a few years of operation the armature and brushes of the starter can become dirty or "fouled" in spots..causing a no start condition sometimes. Also I would suggest you change the starter relay as well.
What the dealer did is / was a "bandaid" that cost you money... When your starter would not function, they decided an alternator and battery was the way to go, rather than a new, power efficient starter.

Just check out whether the car is getting crank when you try to start if not it can be the problem with.ignition switch or the ignition module gone faulty or the fuel pump may be not cleaned and needs cleaning.

Car will not turn over


So is it just dead when you turn the key? Start with the easy solution first. Charge the battery or get a jump start.Your battery can be to dead to turn the car over sometimes even though it still powers on the interior lights and gauges on the car.

Sounds like you had a weak battery,and now it's a dead battery. Go get you're charging system checked. Auto Zone does if for free. Could be an alternator too but it most likely your battery. And they'll put in your new battery for ya too. FREE!

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
