Question about Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Nissan Maxima that want start when I put the key in the ignition to start the car; especially when it's cold out. I've developed a hard blister on my index finger from trying to start my car, do I need a new ignition w/key because I've had several keys replaced because they have broken off in the ignition. I've replaced everything from the starter to the battery what could be the problem?

If you are twisting very hard or have to wiggle the key to get the starter to engage, then i would say so. Either that or you could replace the start portion of the switch with a push button on the dash, Just like the new in vogue sports cars have.

Sounds like either weak battery or a weak starter not turning it over quick enough. Check thoses areas first and then go to the ignition switch and check

How to reset the anti theft system in a 1995 maxima


I read somewhere I believe in Maxima Forums if you turn the ignition key to the ON position...not starting the car, and leave it on for ten minutes minimum without touching anything it will reset itself.
Worth a shot.

Check your ignition system and fuel system. Spark plugs, wires and coils as well as your fuel pump and fuel filter and injectors.

Remove the high tension cable to the distributor from the ignition unit. Conduct a spark test. If there's no spark, try to replace the ignition coil or the igniter.

I need to somehow reset my factory alarm on my 1995 Nissan Maxima


this is how most nissans program the key fobs.
get in the car and manually lock the drivers door with the door switch.
put the key in and out of the ignition about 10 or 12 times until the hazard lights flash once.
turn the key to the ignition setting so all the dash lights are on,but do not start the car.
click the lock button on the remote fob.the hazards should flash once to confirm.
turn off ignition and remove the key.
unlock the drivers door and open the door.
the remote should now work.
if that does not work,the dealer can reprogram the fob with the obd diagnostic system.

Car start problem


your problem is not with the starter, the problem is with your ignition switch. at the back of ignition switch is a hard plastic that contains the wire. here in the philippines you can buy that part alone but in your case i think it's not available so you have to change the ignition switch as a whole.

Engine cranking but no start


If your key is not programmed for the car, then it will have this issue. I bought a 99 Maxima 3 weeks ago. One of the keys was programmed and worked perfectly. The other would turn the car over and stop it immediately. If you do this too many times without the key being programmed from the dealer or another source, it will erase all keys that are programmed and lock down the ignition.
