Your best bet would be to take it to an auto zone or similar auto parts chain store where they will do a diagnostic scan for free and tell you what part/s are causing the problem. Another possibility is that it is not getting fuel, check the fuel pump fuse and the fuel pump relay and it wouldn't hurt to change the fuel filter if you haven't done so in some time.

Its quite possible it can be ignition switch or ignition control module causing the problem.You will need to test the voltages:--- Ignition key on black white wire disconnected from coil should have 12 volts on that wire if not check for power at the ignition switch and at the 40 amp main ignition fuse, the ECU triggers the white wire to ground to saturate the coil windings. The ECU needs to receive crank/cam angle sensor input to trigger the coil.--------

You need to check that you have power to the coils and injectors ( red wire) with the key on. Next you need to find out if you have Injector pulse while cranking. This is an important next step after knowing that you have no spark.
Also check Crank position sensor, it is on the Trans bell housing . It is a three wire Hall effect sensor, so you cannot check sensor integrity with an Ohm meter, but you can unplug it and check that you have the correct supply. Red is battery voltage, Black is ground, and white (sensor unplugged) should read 5Volts coming from the ECM. If this is good, then change the sensor. No way to test it further without a scope. You could try tapping on it while cranking. Also check out the connection and wiring for any signs of a problem.
----------
Also are getting check engine light on dash.If yes then there are code stored in the computer of car and that code has to be retrieved by scanning the car at car diagnostic center.-------- This has to be checked.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My Nissan Maxima is showing code P1335 Manufacturer Controlled Ignition System Or Misfire. Where is this and how do I fix it?


DTC P1335 is not a ignition code. It is for the crankshaft position sensor. You will most likely have to replace that. symptoms sound like the crankshaft position sensor.

The most likely problem is with the signals the pcm is getting from the crankshaft or camhaft position sensors. The problem could be the sensor itself, the tone ring that spins next to the sensor, or the wiring. Inspect the wiring and connectors, tone rings, and sensor installation carefully. If visual looks good, there are some tests you can run at the link below.

Hi, usually one of 2 sensors cause that. The camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor. Usually the latter. Does it have the no-start condition more when the motor is hot or has been running? Or is it just anytime cold or hot?
Crankshaft sensor is notorious for hot non starts and wont always leave a code. Reply with more info if you like. Does engine also run rough or lack power? Mike

My 96 maxima wil not start when i turn the switch. It will start when the engine is cold. I have replace the starter. What canit be.


You have either a faulty camshaft, or crankshaft sensor. I would recommend that you run a diagostic on the car to be certain.

Ok i have a 1996 nissan maxima 3.0 i have had this problem before replaced front three plugs and it was fine now it wont start at all i replaced all the plugs and then i noticed the plugs are being flooded...


I have experienced the same issue in my Pathfinder that has the same VG30E engine. I would recommend that you change your plugs to the NGK Vgrooove Copper plugs, or go with the iridium series. If you are running anything other than that, you are not going to receive the intended spark for the engine. I took someone's recommendation and used the Bosch platinum plug, and let me tell you that was a huge mistake, I lost power, performance, and the plugs fouled out causing the engine to miss.

If it has a code for loosing the crankshaft position sensor signal, I would certainly start looking at that before venturing into the fuel system. Cam and Crank sensors are a common failure item for Nissans of that era. Nissan actually redesigned the sensor and i think they performed a recall on some vehicles. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe they run about $40 each. Because most people don't have access to a powerful scanner or a digital storage oscilloscope to verify the failure I recommend replacing the cam and crank sensors at the same time.

Your crankshaft sensor doesn't always make the light blink. I'm almost positive it your crankshaft sensor.

2003 nissan maxima 3.5


is the check engine light on?? i would suspect your crank angle sensor. replace the cam sensors too. nissan had problem(there is a campaign) with those, so they came out with a crank and cam sensor kits. get the kit ( at a dealer ) and install it. actually have your nissan dealer run your VIN number to see if you don't have open campaign for it, if so, they will replace them for FREE. But that's what I would be looking at if one of those came to me to fix.
