Question about 2006 Nissan Maxima
Just want to disable anti lock brakes
I do not have any first hand experience with the Nissan Maxima but have pulled a 60 amp fuse in the box under the hood on Chevy trucks. Here is what I found on the web which may be helpful to you. First the link and then the text:
The problem is corrosion in the rear hubs is causing the sensors to be pushed out of alignment with the sensor ring. DO NOT continue to drive the car with this problem. It will burn out the abs controller. That part costs $1300.00. First thing you should do is open the hood of the vehicle and follow the wire for the right front abs sensor. You will see a plug above where the motor mount connects to the passenger inner fender area. Unplug that connector. It will disable the abs system so the pump will stop running.
If you are mechanically inclined you could repair this. The rear hubs need to be removed and cleaned. Also the plastic cap behind the hub needs to be modified. After removing the hub you will be able to remove the plastic cap behind it. You will see a hole in the cap where the sensor goes through it. Cut the top portion of the cap so the hole looks like a U and reinstall it. Clean the corrosion around the bearing mating surfaces and reinstall the rest of the parts. Do this for both rear wheels. Be sure to reconnect the front sensor after the repairs are made. You will need to have the codes cleared after repairing. __________________

SOURCE: ABS light stays on
that has four wheel anti lock so your gonna need to either take all them off and clean ends it may correct the problem but more than likely your gonna have to take to a large shop that has abs computer to find which sensor is bad then correct the problem

the doors sould lock when you start t drive, they will not unlock when you stop, but the design of the inside door handle will unlock the door when is opened from the inside.

ABS was optional as an add-on for the GXE Model so I can't say whether you have them or not based on the model. When you turn your key to the on position before starting the car, if you see an ABS light, then your car will have abs. If there is no light, then most likely you do not have abs.
