All I know is I can't wait to trade in My 2004 Maxima I have had it since November of 04 and I have had nothing but bad luck wih it. From the LCD screen being all scratched up to the film on the dashboard. I have gone through 3 sets of tires since January. It was pre-cert. but nothing is covered under the warranty. I canceled it and Nissan is still charging me as if I had the warranty. Good thing I work with top notch Attorney's I smell a huge lawsuit. My front tire rattles it is because their is a slight bend in the front rim. Stick shifter knob pops off. The belts went. Too top it off my CD player broke and a CD was jammed. The stereo store told me Nissan is known for this problem. I paid $300, Nissan wanted $1200. I hope know one has to go through I went through.
#2842 of 4184 '91 Nissan Maxima Power Window Motor
Sep 05, 2005 (2:48 am)
My drivers side power window decided to stop working today. Upon inspection I noticed that the motor cable has slipped and part of it has jammed itself within the case. My question is this... What is the best way to get that bad boy out so that I can readjust the cable? I took the door panel off, is there any way to break it down further to make this task a little easier? Right now I've been jamming my hands through the small holes in the door trying to get at it blindly. The motor still works and the window is still mounted to the assembly so I don't want to take it apart. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
#2843 of 4184 1998 Maxima GXE turning signal problem
Sep 05, 2005 (8:30 pm)
I experienced the same problem with two diferent Maximas. In both cases the problem was caused by a rear directional-signal bulb whose base had become so hot as to melt, ruining the spring-loaded receptacle and preventing base contact. Solution was to replace the receptacles and install new bulbs. Some cars alert you to a failed directional-signal bulb by having the flasher "click" more rapidly. Good luck!

When the power window of my '92 Maxima failed in '96, I dismantled everything, believing I could get it working again. Problem was not the motor but the way the cable was secured (clamped); it appeared to be a design flaw. I bought a new "regulator" and installed it myself. The new regulator had an improved way of clamping the cable, leading me to believe the engineers had learned of the problem and made an improvement. I complained loudly to Nissan U.S.A. Would you believe it--they reimbursed me for the price of the regulator (about $90 as I recall) but balked at paying for my labor. They said they were doing this in the interest of keeping me a "life-long Nissan customer." Sometimes even poorly designed items will run forever, which explains why the three other power windows still work.
#2845 of 4184 Back-lit instrument-panel switches don't illuminate

I'd be grateful for suggestions on how to get my '92 Maxima's back-lit switches (cruise-control main switch; fog lights; instruments brightness control; and rear-window defogger) to illuminate. All thse switches work, but don't light up when the headlights are turned on. All other lights on the instrument panel work. No fuses are blown.
#2846 of 4184 Alarm system off
Sep 06, 2005 (9:14 am)
This morning I opened the driver's door of my '92 Nissan Maxima and the horn went off. I had to disconnect the battery to stop it. This happened before, but trying to open from the passenger door, and when I try to start, it went off and the engine strated normally. Not today. Any quick fix solution before I call the towing truck?

mervette5, i asked for and confronted the service manager at a local Nissan Dealership. I've tried several times to reason with the service advisor at the dealership, but this person was not helping at-all. The manager was, i guess you can say "willing" to listen and help me solve my issue. You will probably never find a good enough response from the customer service, service advisors. If you have a really major problem with the service advisor or the tech. who was working on your car, i would definitely talk to the service manager. This only applies to a service or a part you bought from the Nissan dealership. If you actually KNOW that the tech. guys or the service advisors( usually the one's who talk to you whenever you go in for a service) are trying to rip you off. Talk to the service manager about it. They usually listen, because they would hate to see a pissed off customer. You must show frustration so that the person listening can feel your discontentment and angerness. My advice to give to the people who want to "challenge" Nissan parts or service is to talk directly in person only to the SERVICE MANAGER. And i highly recommend doing it VERY EARLY in the morning; like right when they open (so that nothing get's boggled down when it's late in the afternoon; so to speak).

Hello everyone, this is my first time here and I have a few problems with my 1989 Nissan Maxima. 1)The engine light comes on and off. When I am on the freeway is when it usually comes on. 2) Also when I put my car in reverse, I hear a very loud noise as if I can feel it changing under the car. 3) Another thing is when I start the car and put my foot on the brake, I hear a click noise where the gears are located. 4) It also vibrates when I am at stoplights. Can someone help me? Thank You!!!
