    my 97 Maxima quite running, both belts(power steering, alt. water pump & etc.) broke i had them replace with new belts. Before that the car didn't have a problem with starting. But after that the car would turn over a few times before it would start. it got worse over the next few days it would turn over longer and longer finally it got where it would not crank. i forgot to tell you that i had to pat the gas the whole time or hold down the petal all the way 2 the floor. do you know what might b the problem?
    thanks, revdaril

    I have a problem with the ignition switch not responding when i turn the key. Replaced ignition yesterday and it started two to three times today, but failed again tonight would not make a sound. Mechanic said he played with the gear shift and it started off and on , so he replaced the ignition to no avail.

I have a 97 nissan maxima, my car wont start...I just put in a new alternator and a new battery

Check the distributor, if it has one. If it has it could be points or a condenser. Does it at least turn over?
