Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima
So basically i got an 03 maxima. i still have the original keyless entry keyfob which is able to unlock and lock the car and open the trunk just fine. however, the inside door lock switches will not work unless the key is in the ignition and turned on. the car doesnt have to be on, but the ignition has to be on, i think its the ACC?
in any case what could the problem be? i got it 2 years ago and about six months later found out itd been in what appeared to be a really nasty accident, which isnt even on carfax or carcheck in any case...what could the problem be??
The lock switches should be on a battery lead,l which means they work when the car is off. The window switches are different because the ign. has to be on for the windows to go up and down. What your problem sounds like to me, is the door has been replaced as a result of the accident and the lock switch is wired wrong. if you can get the rubber tube that houses the wires from the door to the body of the car open or off and see if the wires are plug in or just spliced together, you'll then have to trace the lock wire and see if it's attached to a power wire.

I've seen alot of other folks with this.
I would go to the Nissan parts dept. in your town, and see if there's a battery in the fob that goes bad/ Let me know what you find out?
