I suspect you have two separate issues your lights staying on is possibly a faulty stop and tail light bulb check both , I suspect you may also have a faulty starter motor.

SOURCE: 96 NISSAN MAXIMA SHUTS OFF UPON DECELLERATION OR WHEN STOPPED

Check to see if the floor on the passanger side is wet. If so, than your A/C drain clogged up and your ECM/computer got flodded by water causing all sorts of funky stuff happening. Right next to the gas pedal is a small cover attached to the computer. It has a clip in it. Remove the clip and tug on the cover. Look at the top of the computer to see if its rusted up. Remove the other side cover also, which is on passanger side floor next to your left foot(if you sitting in passenger seat). and check other side of ECM/computer. Check the ECM for rust on top.
If ALL of that looks OK, than I would replace the switch,(since you are telling me that the key got VERY hot) that is mounted on the back of the ignition cylinder. Its a white round switch that failes after a while especially car beeing 1996, just think about how many times that ignition has been turned ON/OFF since 1996. The mechanism in the switch failes, causing starting issues and funky electrical issues.
Does the car have a remote starter installed?? Or didi it have one in the past?? I have seen companies that install them cause some damage to the harnesses on the switch that is mounted to the back of the igniton cylinder. They use "scotch locks" to connect the remote starter and after a while the connection corrode and cause problems too.
Anyways, check the computer for rust first. Than I would install that switch on back of the igniton. You can buy the switch seperately. You dont need the whole ignition assembly/switch only. Switch is pretty cheap (approx $50 ?). Try that and post results. I would feel pretty good about the switch beeing faulty. I have ssen them fail in the past and that's where your power comes into for the starter circuit.(key getting HOT, switch shorting out, making the key hot and starting the car without the key)

SOURCE: Clicking Noise when trying to start vehicle

check your key remote if it is not programmed the alarm will go into the kill switch mode and will not allow you to start your engine Having the same trouble with one of my keys I haven't found a way to reprogram it without calling dealer and paying a chunk.

it is a cable that links you transmision to the dashboard
i am not sure what the name of the cable is
but if you hold the start position and switch the gears to neutral it will start.

SOURCE: starting problem

check the switch that the clutch actuates.your ignition sounds like it works.some cars also must be in neutral if yours does the wires for this will plug into the transmission.you can bypass the switch at that point.

SOURCE: brake lights stay on and ignition is off

your brake light switch has malfunctioned. it is locatad on top of the brake pedal but you have to stand on your head to see it up there it is a very easy fix one nut and one wire clip. when you replace it have some one watch the back of the car while you push the brakes. you will have to adjust the switch so that when you tap the brake pedal a little ways the brake lights come on. and if you do not feel comfertable to do this you can take it to a repair shop of your choice. i hope this helps you. and please rate my solution
thank you

I just bought a 96 Nissan maxima with a new engine. Drives great, but...today I noticed the overdrive button was on, seeing that I usually only rive around town I turned it off, now the car doesn'


to start with does turning the od button on allow it to start
if it does leave it at that because it will not get to over drive unless throttle settings and road speed are right
the problem with used cars is that previous owners change things and don't pass on the changes so it may have been tampered with
you could always take it to an accredited auto electrician to have the circuit checked out for changes

My 1996 Nissan Maxima's Alternator


Just because they're new doesn't mean that they work. I would find an auto parts store that does free electrical system checks before spending a dime elsewhere. I've gone through 4 batteries in 3 years because of bad products. And have most recently had to replace a brand new alternator because it, too, was defective.
