    thnx. Nissan dealer said it was one of three things that can cause this: starter, alarm system or ignition. Nissan and Autozone think it's most likely the alarm. Problem seemed to start- right after I had a refurbished starter put in. Starters are easy to put in....appreciate all the input. =)

I have the same car, and when that happened to me it was the starter. It wasn't too hard to replace.

check the battery terminals. Sounds like their loose. If they are dirty, take em off and clean em. Then when you tighten them up, put some petroleum jelly on them so they won't corride again.

Factory alarm wont stop


You can try to use another key if you have one, get one made. Also try to lock and unlock the doors, if this does not help you will need to bring vehicle to shop with high end scan tool so they can monitor what part of the security system is activating. Thanks

Remove the aftermarket alarm or if it's a OEM alarm try unhooking the battery cables for a few minutes to clear the computer.

Remove anit-theft system


the anti theft control wont keep the engine from turning over if this is the case and the engine will not spin over. THEN this is not your problem. Have someone bump your starter with a obgect while you hold your key in the start postion. Before doing so make sure your battery is chared and you have good connections.

1999 Maxima - Sometimes it does not start.


It sounds like you have bad contacts in the starter assembly, next time it wont start tap the starter and try again, it most likely needs a starter replacement.

Alarm wont let me start the car


you need the remote control of the alarm to turn the alarm off.

you may need to change the battery of the remote in case it would no longer control the alarm or if you have a valet switch to turn off the alarm, then use it.

the immobilizer is working that is why you can not start the car.

tnx 4 using fixya,
