Could be a lot of things in this model car. Be more specific. Is the cranking fast or slow, does it crank and stops cranking and makes this weird noise?? This model A32 had some issues with that. give me more info and lets see if we can get you back on the road.

SOURCE: 96 NISSAN MAXIMA SHUTS OFF UPON DECELLERATION OR WHEN STOPPED

Check to see if the floor on the passanger side is wet. If so, than your A/C drain clogged up and your ECM/computer got flodded by water causing all sorts of funky stuff happening. Right next to the gas pedal is a small cover attached to the computer. It has a clip in it. Remove the clip and tug on the cover. Look at the top of the computer to see if its rusted up. Remove the other side cover also, which is on passanger side floor next to your left foot(if you sitting in passenger seat). and check other side of ECM/computer. Check the ECM for rust on top.
If ALL of that looks OK, than I would replace the switch,(since you are telling me that the key got VERY hot) that is mounted on the back of the ignition cylinder. Its a white round switch that failes after a while especially car beeing 1996, just think about how many times that ignition has been turned ON/OFF since 1996. The mechanism in the switch failes, causing starting issues and funky electrical issues.
Does the car have a remote starter installed?? Or didi it have one in the past?? I have seen companies that install them cause some damage to the harnesses on the switch that is mounted to the back of the igniton cylinder. They use "scotch locks" to connect the remote starter and after a while the connection corrode and cause problems too.
Anyways, check the computer for rust first. Than I would install that switch on back of the igniton. You can buy the switch seperately. You dont need the whole ignition assembly/switch only. Switch is pretty cheap (approx $50 ?). Try that and post results. I would feel pretty good about the switch beeing faulty. I have ssen them fail in the past and that's where your power comes into for the starter circuit.(key getting HOT, switch shorting out, making the key hot and starting the car without the key)

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan Maxima won't start, not battery.

You may have bad solenoid, starter/battery/solenoid connections, or gound.

Check voltage at starter solenoid when somebody turns key to start. That is where the starter switch, or relay, sends the voltage to pull in the solenoid coil through small wire. I think the solenoid is on the starter for this car, but it may be separate. Autozone has an excellent web site with car-specific repair guides and instructions. You should see 12V at solenoid every time the key is turned to start.

Check big power cable to starter that runs direct from the battery for tight connections. If you have a separate solenoid, then another big cable runs from it to starter. A loose or bad connection could be the culprit. Also check starter mount bolts. They need to be tight for a good solid electrical ground. You also need good ground from frame to engine. Its a long shot, but sometimes the ground straps come loose or burn. You can easily check this by measuring resistance between engine block and negative battery terminal. It should be zero or darn near zero (less than 1 ohm ?).

The solenoid is really a heavy duty swich to handle the high amp load to the starter. It works by a coil that pulls in the big switch. The coil operates from the starter switch and needs onlyt low current and small wire. If the coil wires burn up or there is a bad connection, it won't work. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 95 maxima hard to start

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.

SOURCE: I have 1998 Maxima, won't crank or start. Battery

Check crank sensors first.There are two sensors 1 is by the crankshaft pully (by the drive belts) the other is between the engine and transmission it reads from the flywheel . Good luck.

2000. Nisan maxima is it a interference motor when it jumps timing


the maxima engine has been identified as an intereference engine and valve damage is most likely to occur ( autodata timing belts publication)
timing is unlikely to jump unless the belt breaks or the belt tensioner becomes loose
if there is a timing problem then the engine will be difficult to start , or run very badly
If the motor starts and runs but lacks power or performance or just does not start then it is suggested to have the fault codes read to check for cam/crank position sensors and immobiliser operation

1990 Nisan Maxima threw all 3 serp. belts-crankshaft pulley went bad. Replaced all of these and then it started to rough idle (head gasket leak?) installed stop leak (ceramic) and it starts well one time...


there is a good possibility that your engine may have ingested some of that antifreeze and if it did thats one of the reasons why your engine idle is rough the reason why its hard to start is becaus the anti freeze is being compressed by the pistons when you start the engine check the tailpipe for white smoke or an antifreeze smell As far as the stop leak its sometimes a temporary fix for a bigger problem .Check your antifreeze level (when it cools down).for a low fluid level

1998 Nisan Maxima


Your issue may be the switch inside the drivers door handle, where the security switch is located. It's mounted to the back of the lock cylinder inside the door. It most likely fell off the lock and it is stuck in ARMED position, not allowing the car to start. Remove door panel and look at the lock on the back and check it. The alarm switch is a small white plastic piece right at the back of the lock and it has wires coming out of it. Check it and let me know what you have found.
