#3447 of 4184 90 Maxima SE blowing fuse and not starting
Aug 29, 2006 (6:17 am)
I recently purchased a 1990 Nissan Maxima SE for $500 and after putting a healthy $1000 into it, it is running...roughly but actually not that bad. However, when the guy sold it to me, he explained that he had an issue with a fuse blowing and the car not starting. Last night was the first night driving the car, and it died on me and wouldn't start. Luckly my friends helped me get the car to his garage, and we discussed it and he checked the fuse this morning and it was blown again...Anyone with any ideas what could be causing this 10 amp fuse to blow while driving? Do I need a new fuel pump relay? New Engine Computer? Stack of 10 amp fuses? Overall the car is in nice shape for a $500 car, and I would like to figure out this problem and drive it for a few years. Any assistance is appreciated.

My driver side window sqeeks when it's dry. It's fine when it's raining. I am thinking that the rubber edge needs to be lubricated. Any suggestions what to use as lubricant?

#3450 of 4184 Emergency Brake

My son may have pulled up too hard on the emergency brake handle of our Nissan Maxima. Now we cannot get the emergency brake handle to go down. The release button on top just won't press in to release it. Any suggestions?

Hmmmm.....my reply disappeared, so here I go again. Pull up while releasing the brake. It should (easily) release. Good luck.
#3452 of 4184 maxima 2000 stalls
Sep 03, 2006 (5:26 pm)
my maxima 2000 se standard stalls when i pull it out of gear and into nuetral - but not all the time!
it never does it if i have the Air Conditioning on.
It happens mostly in the morning or when the car has just warmed up.
It seems like the idle is a little low.
It seems that the whatever controls the idle isnt catching it after i pull it out of gear, the rpm drops very low and recovers or just stalls out.
also, i need to find a honest mechanic in the orlando area!
thanks for your help!

Mine does the same. Get some dry lubricate.

I just purchased a 2007 Maxima. I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to make the doors lock when I place the car in/out of gear. Does anyone know how to do it??
#3455 of 4184 Awful Noise 92 Nissan Maxima
Sep 12, 2006 (8:51 am)
I have a 92 Nissan Maxima. Sunday night it started making a awful noise, sounded like metal scraping asphalt under the front of the car. I had been driving it earlier so I have no idea where it came from. It started at turning the car on and the whole 2 miles home. the slower I drove the more noticible the noise, scratching horrible loud noise. I parked and looked under the car, nothing was hanging down or abnormal. I decided to try to start it in the morning to see if the noise persisted, and it did upon trying to back out so I just parked it and it is sitting.
Any suggestions? does this sound normal to anyone?

What is dry lubricant? (lubricate??)
My driver's side window does the same thing, very annoying squeek.
