Sounds as if you need the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The contacts inside are most likely worn out.

You need to remove all of the air intake and other things behind the battery. The start motor is held in with two bolts. You might need a breaker bar to break loose the one bold as I did. Once you remove all of the air intake equipment. This will help you gain access to the starter motor. You might not need to remove all the air intake equipment I know it made it alot easier for me to remove the starter and I took it to the auto store and had it tested.

SOURCE: How to program 1997 Maxima remote

Try this it works for the 95 and 96 models it should also work for all models 95 thru 99. 1st you need to get in the car and hit the lock button on the drivers door switch. Make sure doors and windows are all shut. To program the remote you must insert the key into the ignition 6 to 8 times rapidly in a 10 second time period and when you have done it correct the hazards lights will then illuminate twice. Next then you must hit the lock button quickly on the remote due to a slight time delay only hit the button once. Keep repeating this step until it works and to find out if it worked hold down the trunk button or the unlock button(the front windows should let down on you Mad-Max.

SOURCE: How do you fix the water pump on a 1997 nissan

The water pump is located behind the timing chain cover. There are two black plates on the front cover. The one near the front of the car has the water pump behind it. The other one has the timing chain tensioner behind it. First you must drain the coolant. Then support engine and remove engine mount. Then remove drive belts. Then remove the two black plates. Push the tensioner in and lock it with a paper clip. Then remove the two bolts holding the tensioner and remove tensioner. Then remove the water pump bolts. Rotate engine crankshaft the take tension off of water pump (about 20 degrees). Then install two bolts into water pump threaded flange (M8). Tighten M8 evenly as water pump will come without damaging it. Check for corrosion. Then replace with new one. Make sure you use new "O" rings. Lubricate with engine oil. Put the original three bolts back in the water pump. Then install timing chain tensioner and black covers. Replace belts and engine mounts. Add coolant and pressure test system.

My o/d light comes on at start-up but when I start driving and I press the button it doesn't light up or engage. 1999 nissan maxima GXE

Could be a problem inside the transmission. The light on at startup is usually a bulb test. keep in mind the light would only come on when you switch the overdrive off. it is on all the time otherwise.

Not in the trunk? Not under the spare tire? Somewhere in the last 14 years you may have lost it.

Nissan maxima 2004 will not shift into overdrive

The overdrive is electronically controlled, so you may have a bad switch, or the torque converter could be going out. Is your check engine light on? If you have the capability to manually turn off the overdrive on the gear selector or console, I would recommend continually pressing it and see if that works. Otherwise it may be a trip to the dealer or a mechanics shop so they can further investigate the issue.

We have lost the keys to our 1997 Nissan Maxima. We can open the doors but have no keys for them or the ignition.

you can contact the dealer with the Vin number and they should be able to cut a key for a lock smith and he can change out the locks.
