    Your car is telling you it has a fault . It is in your best interests to get it checked out . If you decide to leave it alone and your car stops dead doing damage to the engine it is going to cost more.
    If it happens on a wet cold night you will get wet walking home.
    Best to get it sorted asap.
    Last month I fixed a car that someone ignored the warning light on , If they had of brought the car in when the light came on it would have cost them around $600.00 to fix but they didn't and after the engine destroyed it's self the cost of repairs was $3728.30
    Hope this helps.

    There are many things that light covers , You need to get the computer scanned with a scantool.
    This tool reads the computer and gives the user a code which can then be looked up to see what component has failed or which system is not working within it's designed parameters.
    Most good auto repair shops have these tools.
    You can spend alot of time speculating what could be the problem and get nowhere , Get the error code and we will take it from there.

"Warning Lights" on the dashboard of "1995 Nissan Maxima"

The warning lights coming on with the key in the on position is normal. If the key is turned to the start position and the engine will not crank over, suspect an internal starter motor problem or lack of power to the starter solenoid. You can try tapping on the starter motor with a blunt object while someone holds the key in the crank position to see if it starts when this problem occurs. If it starts using this procedure, the starter motor will be defective

I turned on my car and my maintenance indicator light came on. It has been sitting for about a week and a half. I crank the car up at least every other week.

hello. that warning light is an indication that the car's computer has detected a problem. If you drive to any AAMCO shop or many auto parts stores, they will scan your computer for free. Regards, Joe
PS - kindly rate my answer as helpful. thank you.
