Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
My 1997 Maxima has been sitting for a couple years (stored indoors for most of the time). The overall condition of the vehicle is great and has had little trouble turning over whenever started (worse was 8 cranks before finally turning over). Pulled it out of storage the other day 50+ degrees, starts fine. drove less than 1/10 mile and hasn't started since. We did blow out the engine compartment due to a lot of debris, but cannot see any disconnections/bare wire. The cars getting plenty of juice as its connected to a battery charger, the starter engages. The car is getting plenty of fuel just no spark. All fuses check out. We have cleaned the ground connections and have cleaned the crank position sensor. Any help or idea as to where to go with this would be appreciated. Thanks!! Alex D
My automatic 1997 NIssan Maxima electric system is not working. This includes automatic windows, winshield wiper, radio, air system etc. What may be happening?

Check the Mass Airflow sensor. Blowing out the engine compartment may have upset this sensor. There's only one way to test it, and that's to unplug it and see if the car starts. If it does, problem solved.
If it doesn't, back to square 1
