Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

1995 Nissan Maxima that dies in cold weather only

Battery is 2 years old, tested with no problem. Even if I run car the day before, battery is dead the next day. No sound at all when I turn car on. It's almost as if it wears down from repeat turnons in cold weather. Last year had it charged for 2 hrs at gas station and that seemed to do the trick. Tried the same solution last week. My mechanic can't figure it out.

    the Nissan blogs refer to this as parasitic battery draw and older Nissans seem to be cursed by it. I still have not foudn the cause of mine and have put a kill switch on my batteryto disconenct power if car sits more than a day. Some folks found the cause of theirs. The light in the trunk or the light in the glove box staying on. They said the draw was not enough to get the notice of a mechanic but enough to slowly pull power from a battery, particulary an older battery. I put a new battery, new wires, new connectors, new alternator and mine stil ldrans if sittign more than a day. Never foudn the cause. Just easier ot disconnect the battery...

My 95 maxima was just cuttn out on me and would go dead but usually move battery cables a little and it would crank, however we changed cable ends on battery, crank it and dtove doen the road, it went dead...


Battery went dead? If this is the case you probably have a dead short.Should pull starter possibly bad solinoid, My old Maxima had caused me similar issue, if you pull starter it usually can be tested at a local Auto parts store. In a vehicle that fails to start, the common problems are the starter solenoid and the starter motor. The starter assembly can be quickly pulled from a 1995 Nissan Maxima, and then can be further separated to replace one part of the starter assembly.The process does not require any special tools, and can be done by novice mechanics

I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima. The altenator and battery have been replaced less than a year ago. It still will not start with out a jump in the cold weather. .


Have an auto electrician CHECK ur HARGiNG system! Either ur battery got problem or the alternator! Alternator should have 13 to 14 volts output while running! Taah!

Clickc but won't start, lights ok, windshield


Most likely cause is your battery is dying. The clicking is generally a sign the voltage is too low to engage the starter. That ist started up with a jump indicates the starter is good and most likely cause is the battery. Take it to Walmart to be tested (they do this for free in hopes of selling you a new battery). They have decent batteries for reasonable prices and because they can be found almost anywhere they are a great place to buy a battery because they are always nearby if you need warranty return for the new battery.

Car died, starts when jump it and dies again soon as charge drain


Hello dpkommineni: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The problem you described is that of a car not charging the battery. You need to have the charging system tested. The alternator should charge between 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Anything less then 12.5 the battery will go dead. Since the weather is hot any use of the head lamp and A/C the battery would die fairly fast. I would also have the battery tested. Should the battery have a open cell then it would not take a charge from the alternator.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way we can tell you received helpful information. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Dying 1994 Nissan Maxima


have you checked the voltage at the battery terminals while the car is running,it should be about 13-15volts, 15volts absolute maximum and no lower than 13volts minimum. ideally voltage at battery should be 14.8 maximum when cold. when the car is at operating temperature it should be roughly 13.8volts at battery. try doing a simple load test ,turn on headlights with high beam on,turn on air con or heater,internal light, even hazards.if you have under 13.8 volts at battery give it a rev to about 2000 rpm and watch for increase in voltage at battery terminals using a multimeter. if voltage is lower then you must have voltage drop somewhere in your wiring,eg; wiring harness to all your sensors,relays etc. check all fuses,fusible links(usually braided looking wire about 100mm long) also check the back of the alternator with multimeter( positive point on alternator and negative on multimeter to a good earth on body or motor eg; a nut or bolt nearby.if you dont have a multimeter and or dont know how to use one, you can buy them pretty cheap from a spare parts joint with instructions for under $20:00,you can find tutorials on internet for free. hopefully this has been some help,by the way make sure you dont flatten ur battery too often,discharging a battery too much can kill it,cheers and good luck!
