Question about 1993 Nissan Maxima

1995 Nissan Maxima starter won't always engage when key is turned

This problem has gotten worse over time. I suspect it may be an ignition switch problem, but I don't know how to test it.

It is most likely the solenoid contacts that are getting bad. You can sometimes have an auto electric shop fix your starter for a reasonable price.

Sounds like either weak battery or a weak starter not turning it over quick enough. Check thoses areas first and then go to the ignition switch and check

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

1995 nissan maxima doesnt start when cold, just clicks, and after trying for 5 to 10 minutes it finally starts... Please help me out...


it is one of two things.
  • the starter is either worn and brushes not making contact or an engine oil leak onto the starter. thus keeping the brushes from making contact you can check this by banging on the starter while someone trys turning the ignition back and forth to start.(making the click click click)

  • ignition switch is weak, not providing enough voltage from the to kick the soliniod all the way to start the starter

The way to check that is to hot wire the starter soliniod little wire, to battery voltage. (the big cable on the solinoid)
If it turns over good, then you can either replace the ignition switch or install a relay someware near the starter to supply it with propper current to kick the solinoid all the way to engage the motor.
The relay acts as a remote starter switch that feeds more direct power to the starter solinoid.Now the only thing the ignition switch is responsible for, is trigger the relay.

IFTHE CAR DONT CRANK IT IS NOT COMPUTER. MOST LIKELY IT IS STARTER MOTOR OR IGNITION KEY SWITCH OR BATERY.

I have a 1995 Nissan Maxima that want start when I put the key in the ignition to start the car; especially when it's cold out. I've developed a hard blister on my index finger from trying to start my car,...


If you are twisting very hard or have to wiggle the key to get the starter to engage, then i would say so. Either that or you could replace the start portion of the switch with a push button on the dash, Just like the new in vogue sports cars have.
