Hey
You may have a worn Ignition Lock Cylinder, but try moving the gear shift lever further up into the park position while turning the key. Also, maybe turning the steering wheel just a bit.

IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the transmitters you will be using on the vehicle. Once you program the transmitter, all previous codes will be erased from the memory. The other transmitters will not be functional until you program the transmitters again.
  1. Close and lock all doors with the driver's side power lock/unlock switch.
  2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.
  3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.
  4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.
  5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
  6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition,
    unlock doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.

My 1997 nissan maxima won't start when its cold outside. I have always had a hard time starting the car u would have to turn the key in the ignition real hard but now on cold days it won't...


Sounds like either weak battery or a weak starter not turning it over quick enough. Check thoses areas first and then go to the ignition switch and check

I don't think the ignition keys are chipped for that year Maxima, but even if they were you should be fine if the new lock cylinder came with keys.

How do I get my key out of my Nissan Maximas ignition?


I don't know very much about cars myself, but I had the same problem with my 96 Nissan Maxima. It turned out that the button on the shifter knob wasn't releasing all the way, causing the key to be stuck in the ignition. I pushed on the button a few times to get it unstuck and the key came right out. Hope this helps.
