#1760 of 4180 check engine" light
Jan 30, 2004 (4:54 pm)
I have that problem on my 99 maxima GLE and failed the inspection. Changed the ignition coil and cost me $145.00 for each. But, still the car has vibration. I may need others to change.
I seen someone said the Nissan has paid for it for their mistake for this ignition coil. I contact Nissan long time ago and they did not response.How can i claim back to this problem from Nissan on this ignition coil. My warrenty just over at that time in 2002.
As for the service engine light, I spend over $400.00 at dealer to fixed it. They said it was carbon build up and took 5+ hrs for them to fixed with soaking chemical solution.
I think it is Nissan bad spikes and they did not tell the customers. Now, my car is 75K. Can some one tell me how to contact Nissan on which dept.
This is my 2nd Nissan Maxima and my 95 was doing fine. This 99 has several problems. Your advise is appreciated.

For most vehicles, all that's needed is to unhook the battery. That typically resets them.

I've had my 2004 Maxima since Oct 1, 2003. I've had to change a daytime running light twice since I took delivery. Now again one of them is out. Any news on recalls/service advisories on this subject?

I have a 2000 maxima that makes a short hoot noise when started when cold outside-i think it is a IAC valve, since this is common in ford vehicles i am familiar with the sound. has anyone dealt with this??

Driving home from the airport Friday in 0 degree temps the sun/moon roof cracked, shattered and flew out on the road while driving. I immediately drove to the dealership. The dealer says they have never seen this happen. Has anyone else had this happen?
#1766 of 4180 04 Maxima sunroof

Glass can suddenly break, even violently, if it has been tempered improperly. Tempering of glass means subjecting the glass article to a predermined heat cycle with tightly controlled temperature settings and rate of change. This helps reduce internal stresses in the glass, which are induced during manufacture. I suspect that your sunroof panel was improperly tempered when made. Subsequent exposure of one side to cold temperature,with the other side kept warm, caused the internal stresses to increase to the level that resulted in violent failure of the article.

I have also experienced the same problem over the weekend. Friday morning my wife started the car up without any problems. She went into the house to get our daughter only to return to find the car stalled. The car has not started since. Called the dealer and it is to be towed to the dealership first thing Monday morning. This is not the first time that I have had problems with this car. Since I purchased it new on 3-12-03, it has been back to the dealer as follows: Twice for "Service Engine Soon" light coming on, once for leaking sunroof, once for CD player not working, a fog behind the information screen, and the rear drivers side pillar molding came loose. I am completely disgusted with this car, so I've called Nissan USA twice now. The first time for the sunroof problem, and the second as a result of the car not starting. Spoke to a Matt directly at 310-771-8454 extension 8454 or for voicemail 1-800-647-7261 extension 8454. If you have a chance give him a call so that nissan is aware that there is a problem with their Maxima. In my opinion nissan should refund us our money so that we can get cars that will actually start. Anyone considering the 04 Maxima do yourself a favor and get something else. DO NOT BUY A 04 MAXIMA!!!!!!!!

Man, that is a long list of problems for a new car. My 98 Maxima SE has never been to a dealer since I bought the car. No warranty issues, no issues since, except for routine maintenance and the hood pneumatic struts got weak with time.
What did Nissan do to the Maxima?
