SOURCE: check engine light fault code PO505

This code is for your electronic throttle control system it probably needs to be cleaned the butter fly sticks due to build up in side the throttle body clean with tooth brush and emission save throttle body cleaner clear codes and then dissconnect the battery for 3 hours hook back up then go for a short drive stop and go to reset idle control that should take care of this.

Let's try the cheapest fix first. Change the fuel filter out. You'll probably see a brown looking goop in the gas, This is an "ETHANOL" problem. Read up on it. These are all related to so many idle and acceleration problems. Buy a can of SEAFOAM at the parts house. Fill up tank with Premium and add SEAFOAM. Then change filter out before 500 more miles. This should clean out the water and the goop and the carbon build up caused by the ETHANOL. Add a can of SEAFOAM every 3000 mile after that to a full tank of gas. It will keep your emissions,engine, and fuel lines clean. And will keep your car from line freeze up. Good luck.

SOURCE: I am having problems finding the idle air control

It is always attached to the intake or throttle body in the one piece either below sticking to intake or is either at the throttle and is the only one with an electric plug on to it, on the Maxima 04 I know that it is s ingle piece with the throttle body.....and is held by 4 screws and the gasket most of the times can be reused....

Good luck.

My 2001 nissan maxima problem with the idea,goes up an down

You must mean problem with the idle, it goes up and down.

The first thing to check is the coolant level, make sure it is full. the next thing is to check for any vacuum leaks or lines that are off or broken, the last thing is the idle air control valve, try to remove it and clean valve and port, also clean the throttle body, you will need to clean where the flap plate is, clean the plate and body around it.

2001 nissan maxima code po505 idle speed when the car is cold no start

To fix this problem you will need to replace the ecm and the ISC valve. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT REPLACE JUST ONE OR THE OTHER. otherwise you will be putting both parts in again. the ISC (Idle Speed Conrol Valve) Gets antifrezze in it and it shorts the circuit inside and going back to the ECM. Once shorted there is no way of fixing the circuit without replacing both. U have gone through this problem many times brefore.

1995 Maxima idling at 400 rpms. No diagnostic code.

If a mouse chewed the wire into you may need to check all the wires. It sounds like you need to check the operation of the idle air control valve and it's wiring circuit. Good fortune!

I have a 2000 nissan maxima and the problem that i

Idle air control valves short out all the time on these models. You can ohm the motor to check it, but the down side to a shorted iac valve is that it shorts out the ecm if not repaired quickly. when the valve shorts, 12 volts is supplied directly to the ecm and burns the circuit board. The other option is the air flow meter, this is also a very common problem but typically a p0171/p0174 would be stored in self diag.
