Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Won't Turn Over

I own a 99 Maxima. Recently the car would turn over, but I could not get it to fire. I put the car in neutral and backed it out of the garage and put it back it park.
Now the car will not turn over. The radio will not even turn on now. The battery is fine. I checked all of the fuses and they are all good. Any ideas?

Clean the battery terminals and the inside of the battery cable ends with a wire brush. If that doesn't fix your problem check to make sure both the positive and the negative battery cables are good using an ohm meter. You should see a short, close to zero ohms, from the negative terminal of the battery to bare metal on the car's body or engine. If this resistance is high follow the negative battery cable to where it makes connection to the engine block. Make sure this connection is a good clean metal to metal connection. If you aren't 100% sure the battery is good try jumping it with another car. The starter solenoid could be bad but that wouldn't explain the radio not working so that’s probably not your problem.

2000 nissan maxima won't fire when trying to start. it turns over but won't fire. it started once and ran but won't start again

sounds like it might be flooded. Try and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block that is just in front of your left knee. While it is out crank the car and see if it wants to start and hold down the gas pedal all the way and then relase it and back and forth and once you get it to run have the fuse ready in your hand and in front of the spot to install it. and then keep the rpm's up with the gas pedal until the smoke clears out behind the car.

I can't turn the key in the ignition switch in my 2000 nissan maxima GLE

Put the car in neutral and step on the brake and turn slowly to the right. Anything? Shift from neutral back into park and turn the steering wheel slightly left and right while turning the key. Anything? Is this key a copy? Compare it to an original that you never use to make sure the cut and size is correct. You may need to go to the locksmith and get a new key cut off of the original key you don't use often, because a copy of a copy of a copy will never be as good as the original.

Your 94 should be a 350 engine,is it?
That would be a timing chain,which means the distributor cap was removed to locate cylinder 1,
Your high rpm in neutral,and low rpm in gear sounds like a vacume leak,The turn signal problem I'm not sure because you didn't say if the battery is going dead or if it starts right back up.
