Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

1995 Nissan Maxima won't start, not battery.

I drove my car from work to home, stopped for less than 2 minutes and turned off car. I went to start it back up and it will not start. We tried to jump it, and nothing. I have power completely, it won't turn over. I had the starter, battery, and alternator check last week and was told by an Auto Zone worker that all was good. Any suggestions? My father is thinking it could be the ignition switch. How would we test this?

You may have bad solenoid, starter/battery/solenoid connections, or gound.

Check voltage at starter solenoid when somebody turns key to start. That is where the starter switch, or relay, sends the voltage to pull in the solenoid coil through small wire. I think the solenoid is on the starter for this car, but it may be separate. Autozone has an excellent web site with car-specific repair guides and instructions. You should see 12V at solenoid every time the key is turned to start.

Check big power cable to starter that runs direct from the battery for tight connections. If you have a separate solenoid, then another big cable runs from it to starter. A loose or bad connection could be the culprit. Also check starter mount bolts. They need to be tight for a good solid electrical ground. You also need good ground from frame to engine. Its a long shot, but sometimes the ground straps come loose or burn. You can easily check this by measuring resistance between engine block and negative battery terminal. It should be zero or darn near zero (less than 1 ohm ?).

The solenoid is really a heavy duty swich to handle the high amp load to the starter. It works by a coil that pulls in the big switch. The coil operates from the starter switch and needs onlyt low current and small wire. If the coil wires burn up or there is a bad connection, it won't work. Hope this helps.

Electrical problems with 2006 Nissan maxima


I would start with checking the computer for trouble codes.
Sounds like a bad connection in the dash wiring or key switch, but the trouble code might steer you in the right direction.

My 1991 Nissan Maxima 4D will not crank. Is there anyway you can help me figure out the problem? Last night, before driving my car home, the light on the inside would not turn on. Everything else worked as...


i would check that your starter motor isnt f**ked or has a break in the line.. your battery isnt dead.. that you have no blown fuses as their should be a fuse for your starter motor... and that your ignition is working and not shorting out these are all common problems in cars..

hope this helps XD

Unhook the battery positive post, touch the cable to the negative post to make sure it's drained, then re-attatch. Note that you will have to reset radio stations and clocks.
