Question about Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I was driving my 2004 Nissan Maxima on the highway, when I came to my exit & a stop light when my car began to ****, and flash the service engine light. It felt like it was going to cut off any minute. But, I managed to get it to a mechanic. He replaced my coils and spark plugs, and the jerking stopped. About 4 days later, again, I'm driving on the highway when my car begins to ****, and flash the service engine light again...I slowed down and put on my flashers, but within moments, my car completely shut down. I tried to get a jump, but that didnt work... The lights/radio were still on, but it wasnt running. While I waited for help, I went to roll up the windows, but they went slowly, then ultimately stopped rolling up. All power eventually was gone. Now, my car is at the same mechanic, who I thought fixed the problem in the beginning, but he seems to not not know what the problem is...What's going is wrong with my Maxima?

I think you'd be well advised to have the electrical charging system checked. Also check out the negitive connections from the battery to the body....Check all ground connections, and the alternator for output....If you have a digital meter you can do that yourself by placing the positive probe to that side of the battery and the neg to the other....Battery voltage should be around 12.5 with afully charged battery....Once the engine runs you should get an alternator output measured the same way of about 13.5volts. If the engine check light came on you get a scan to be on the safe side....I suspect a bad electrical connection....Best of luck Johngee
