Wow...I can't believe I found this message. When I picked up my Maxima...the steering wheel vibrated....it was in the shop for 4 hours on the day of delivery...they said it was out of round tires....then I took it back with same problem at 285 miles....rotors? wouldn't tell me....just took it BACK in at 2,750, the steering wheel is vibrating between 55 and 60 mph.....they said it was rotors....it's better but I still feel it...Just sent a scathing survey into Nissan. Now I feel like I have something else concrete to suggest to the new service department. Thanks for posting..
#3496 of 4184 Cold Start problems
Oct 16, 2006 (6:30 am)
I have about had it. I have a 93 Maxima. At first the car had a real bad idle problem. We replaced the ECM. Then the dealership told us to replace the Engine coolant temp sensor and the O2 sensor. We were told that would fix the idle and the cold start problem. Apparently Nissan doesn't know what the problem is. Has anyone fixed the cold start problem yet? Please help
#3497 of 4184 Problems in Shift from Parking
Oct 16, 2006 (10:58 am)
I have a Maxima 2000 GLE. I had a SES light on and took it to the mechanic. They fixed the emission problem but when I started the car, it would not shift out of P. I never had the problem before. The mechanic used the Shift Release to take it out of P. He let the car run for some time till it was warm enough and then the shift was smooth. I tried to take back the car after 2 hours but again the same problem. The car is still with the mechanic and I am driving a rental. He says that it might be because of some dirt caught in there or something about some bush casing. I do not know what might be the problem. Has anyone experienced anything like this or does anyone have any answer to this problem?
Thanks in advance for any help..
#3498 of 4184 Check engine light on now
Oct 16, 2006 (12:05 pm)
I have a 95 Maxima SE. I had the starter replaced today and now the check engine light is on. It never came on before this. I filled my tank the same night my starter went, had to have it towed. Any relationship there between the gas tank being filled, the starter being replaced and the check engine light coming on?

#3500 of 4184 NISSAN STARTING PROBLEMS
Oct 16, 2006 (1:20 pm)
Re- starting problems 99 Nissan Maxima;
Have been driving this car with no problems for quite awhile. Left it parked for 2 hours while having lunch. Came out and wouldn't start. Starter would keep turning over and over, but no start. Left the car overnight and came back the next day. Tried to start but wouldn't. Same thing, turning over but wouldn't start. Towed it to shoppe and check everthing that we knew. Couldn't find anything unusual except that there was no spark.
Changed both crank sensors, still no spark.
Took it to dealer. They advised to change ECM, Crank Harness, and Crank Sensors.
They named some other sensors that possibly needed changing, estimating cost to be in the $7000 range. They did re-key the car in order to get it running, charging me $380.
Drove the car several days, stopped for gas, went to start, same thing [no start].
Whatever you can make of this, any help appreciated. Baffeled!!
#3501 of 4184 Factory alarm problems
Oct 16, 2006 (1:28 pm)
I have 02 maxima and the factory alarm is driving me crazy. After I lock it it will go off spontaneously (night time and day time). One of my Xenon bulbs is about to die and it turned pink because of that. Is there any way I can adjust the alarm my self or do I have to take it at the dealer. Please send me a solution people. Thank you.

Check all of the brake lights and bulbs. Awhile back, I read that if there is a brake malfunction, it will lock the trans in Park.
When my wife's 2001 Maxima was read-ended two years ago, the back was demolished, but movable. I had to use the shift release to put it out of Park until it was fixed. The body shop hadn't heard of this either.

of course that's the problem, just clean the terminal real good and then apply terminal greaze, which you can get in any auto store and retighten the terminal
