Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

2003 Nissan Maxima Pre-set seat position memory does not work.

The two position seat memory feature does not work. The seat itself will work fine but it does not remember the postions set for swithc 1 & 2. I have tried reprogramming the seat multiple times and there are no blow fuses. The switches appear to work as they will cause the led to light when pushed.

Set 1 2 switches? please clarify

See pg. 3-31 in owners manual. Start car in park. Adjust seat, telescoping wheel, and side view mirrors. Pust Mem button and then within 5 sec. push either 1 or 2. That button should light to show memory stored.
From the 2012 Guide (See link)
l"AUTOMATIC DRIVE POSITIONER (if so equipped) Two positions for the driver's seat, steering column and outside mirrors can be stored in the automatic drive positioner memory. Follow these procedures to set the memory positions: • Confirm the shift lever is in the P (PARK) position. • Push the ignition switch to the ON position. • Adjust the driver's seat, steering column and outside mirrors to the desired positions using the adjusting switches for each feature. • Push the SET switch and within 5 seconds, push the memory switch (1 or 2) for at least 1 second. • The indicator light on the memory switch you select will illuminate for approximately 5 seconds. • The driver's seat, steering column and outside mirror positions are now set to your preference. These memorized positions can also be linked to your NISSAN Intelligent Key®. For more information, refer to the "Pre-driving checks and adjustments (section 3)" of your Owner's Manual."
For added info see whole owners manual.

I replaced my starter and starter relay in my 2003 nissan maxima and it still wont start, the battery is fine also, help please

Could be a security problem, or neutral safety switch.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the solenoid with the key switch in the start position and work back to the battery.
Could also be a ground problem.

2003 Nissan Maxima rims and the offset

Keep shopping! Off set is basically how far the wheel sticks out of the wheel arch. It is measured in millimetres. + or positive offsetting means the wheels stick further out, wheels are wider apart. You are safer looking for another set of rims at +40. The wheels stick out too far you can damage axles, wheel bearings and wheel nuts. (£££ $$$ OUCH!!).

The recline on my power seat stopped working

I just bought a 2005 Nissan Altima that had the same problem. The motor was fine. I opened the switch and found that a trace on the small circuit board was cut/missing. I soldered it on the spot and it solved the problem. You can access the switch by carefully prying off the switch buttons, then the plate. There are two screws that must be removed so that you can pull the switch assembly out of the seat.
