I had a similar problem - took it into 'Nissan Professionals' and they changed everything you did as well, and had no luck. After 4 or 5 times working on it, they told me that it was a 'loose wire' that had to be re-soddered and then the problem was fixed. I don't know where the wire was, but they made it sound like it was in or around the fuse panel under the hood.
I hope this might shed some light on the problem.

How do I change a check engine light on nissan maxima 1998


Do you mean turn it off? You can't ignore the check engine light. go to Auto Zone and borrow a OBDII connect it under the dashboard with the ignition on, and write down the engine codes, and then seach on line about the description of those codes in order to fix it, after the repair has been done, erase it with the OBDII. I hope this help you.

What else, Check Engine Light, P0505, p0135, p0155, p1494 codes?


You can not work on a vehicle as your doing

Your checking for generic codes only & throwing
parts at it

You get a couple possible worn or failed parts & have
a few less codes

There is no need to clear ALL Data every time you change a part

You need to STOP

You need professional scan tool software to look at ALL data & go for a road test first

You keep clearing stored data ,so now the process will take longer

You work one code & one system at a time

NO PARTS get replaced that are not tested & found to fail
a test,thus a worn out part.

You need both Factory Emission & Diagnostic Manual, as well
as Wiring Diagram Book-- BEFORE-- you can even walk to the vehicle (Helm.Com)

You have nothing to go by,no system knowledge & no trouble charts,& no wiring diagrams to start your testing

If you got no scan tool & no volt meter & no oscilloscope,
your done,vehicles have to be tested to find a problem,any
problem,resolve it & continue on.

My 96 maxima wont pass emissions in az after replacing 02sensor and knock sensor.do i need to drive it to reset comp?


I would say 10 to 20 miles would be enough to tell if the trouble codes will return. You may be able to disconnect the battery for a couple of hours to clear the codes, but using a scanner or code reader is better.
A scanner or code reader can find history trouble codes on some models and in some cases without the engine light being on.
The purpose of the warning light is to tell the driver the vehicle needs attention now.

Electrical problems with 2006 Nissan maxima


I would start with checking the computer for trouble codes.
Sounds like a bad connection in the dash wiring or key switch, but the trouble code might steer you in the right direction.

2001 maxima engine service light for p505 looking to find out how much would this cost for repair


This should be a fairly straightforward diagnosis. Start by clearing the fault codes. Then unplug the IAC and start the engine (This may cause other IAC codes to set. Just ignore them for now). If the P0505 code doesn't reset, replace the IAC. It is internally shorting one of the IAC circuits. If the code DOES return after unplugging the IAC and starting the engine, then you know it isn't the IAC motor. Visually check the wiring harness all the way back to the PCM. You may need to visually inspect the harness by removing all the insulation off the wires. It is possible that the wires could be shorting to eachother or to other wires in the harness.

If there are no wiring problems, and the code keeps returning with the IAC unplugged, you can check the PCM by removing the IAC wires from the PCM connector (or clipping the wires in a location where they can be repaired easily) and then start the engine (If you're not sure, don't do it. Take it to a qualified professional). Now if the code doesn't reset there is a problem with the wiring. Check for continuity on all the IAC wires. Any resistance points to a problem. Check for voltage on any(At this point there shouldn't be any voltages on the wires because they're clipped at one end and unplugged at the IAC). Repair as necessary. But if the P0505 code DOES reset after removing the IAC wires from the PCM connector(or clipping them), replace the PCM, there's a problem internally on the IAC control circuit.

Around $200.00 for parts, labor and fees.

Nissan maxima 05 service engine light is on. How do I check what the code is / are?


There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Not to mention the big list of trouble codes for the engine light.


Best way to find out what's going on engine light is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means and the problem. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

P0505 Code


First make sure that your wires to you iac(idle air control) motor are ok. Also that the pins in the connectors are not damaged. Most likeley you need to replace the iac motor and follow a relearn procedure for the pcm.(powertrain control module)
The iac is most likely stuck in the extented position causing it to starve for air. You have to hold your foot on the gas to keep the throttle plate open enough to let air by for the engine to run.
