Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima
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.
