2005 Maxima SL Auto- transmission got the same problem. My dealer say that is part of the new shift logic feature that Nissan is proud to announce in their advertising, so they donít believe Nissan its going to do any fix about it. I want to know who was the Japanese engineers that convince Nissan to say that that transmission programming will be a successful one. My Ford Explorer get better transmission shift than my new Maxima. That is embarrassing. That is my first and last Nissan. I am very frustrate with my Nissan Maxima.
#2633 of 4184 1998 Maxima A/C problems
Jun 12, 2005 (3:17 pm)
Can anyone offer advice for my 98 Maxima? My a/c was not working and I went to the dealer who recharged my system and subsequently told me my compressor was broken inside and needed to be replaced. I did that today and recharged the system. Plenty of air blowing, but it is not cold. Seems like the flapper valve is stuck and will not allow cold air to enter the car. I have checked all fuses and relays seem to be fine. Also did the self-diagnosis (hold down "off" when starting car for 5 seconds and going through the diagnosis). Does show code 25 (sunlight sensor) which I replaced. Would that stop the whole system from operating?
#2634 of 4184 Exhaust and rotten egg smell
Jun 12, 2005 (4:59 pm)
Hi, I have a 2001 Max, and I have a rotten egg smell coming from my car's exhaust. I heard there could be a potential problem. Is this true and did anybody have any experience with it??? It might be useful to know that I noticed the smell after driving the car for a long time with AC on. However, I smelled it when AC was off.
#2635 of 4184 Recirculate Air Intake...
Jun 13, 2005 (9:10 am)
I've just purchased a 95 Maxima and am looking for the recirculate air intake...The previous owner was a smoker and I bought an aerosol duct cleaning product from autozone to try and eliminate some of the odor. I know they are typically on the passenger side under the glove box but I can't seem to find this one...Thanks for your help...

I have a 2004 Maxima, and have the same problem. It only does it sometimes and I can figure out a pattern to it. I have balance and alignment done twice, and it still does it. I thought maybe I had a defective tire.
So it is the struts?! Mine is about 6 months old.

I had a similar problem with an old Mazda 626. I took it back to the dealer and they forget something like an O ring. It worked fine after that. It could be something that simple.

Probably could of been your usage of a particular octane gasoline. What octane rating of gas do you use? Most nissan maxima that i know recommends using premium, but i've heard that using mostly premium can produce rotten egg smells from the exhaust. Maybe try unleaded plus or regular and see if that helps some, if not than probably a big fat nasty juicy bug is in your muffler hehe j/k =)

The local mechanic traced my problem down to the ignition switch. This may be a common problem in that when the mechanic called the Nissan dealer to get the part the dealer asked how many would he like. It has been running fine since the

Thanks for the suggestion - I did replace the O rings on all hoses.
#2641 of 4184 Remote for locking/unlocking doors

My remote for locking and unlocking doors does not work any longer. It did at one time work. I changed the battery and it still does not work. Does anyone have any other ideas that might help fix this problem? Thanks
