So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

My 1997 Nissian Maxima starter continuously whines when the ignition is off...What do I do? I've disconnected the ground wire to avoid further problems.

You will need to replace the starter, this starter has a bad solenoid ,replace the starter and this will solve your problems.

No spark

try checking your Distributor cap maybe even the timing belt. If there is no spark has to be either or one of those

My 1997 Nissan Maxima wont start.I tried jumping it but it wont crank. Can it be the starter or is it the battery?

First try turning on the headlights. If they don't come on or they are very dim then you may need to charge or replace the battery. If they are on then try to spin the engine over, watch the headlights to see if they dim when you try to start the vehicle. If they dim when you turn the key, add a set of jumper cable and try tapping on the starter with the jack handle while someone turns the key over (who ever turns the key over needs to hold it over until the vehicle starts). If the engine spins over then the starter is bad and will need to be replaced. If it does not it is possible that it is the electrical part of the ignition, park/neutral switch, relay or connections.

I have a 1997 nissan maxima and when i try to start it it will not say anything

try to check the battery if voltage is adequate. If it checks out OK, you may want to check on the connections, the ground wires and wiring that leads to the starter, the starter relay and the ignition. It may also be the starter relay.
