Question about 2004 Nissan Maxima
When the ignition is turned off there is a whirring sound -fairly similar to the sound of a wiper motor. It stops when we remove the engine control fuse -but the the car doesn't start unless we replace it . Any suggestions as to what is making the noise and how to fix it? It seems to come from the left hand side of the engine.
This is connected to a relay and in the relay the points have frozen open on the connection replace this bad relay with new one from "dealer"
make sure that your cooling fan in front of vehicle doesnt have a switch attached to it this could be what your hearing
some people attach a switch to the cooling fan to keep it constantly running this keeps car from over heating
