Question about Nissan Maxima
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.
