#3879 of 4184 Re: 2000 Auto trans problem - goes neutral while driving [swillkill]
Jul 24, 2008 (11:47 am)
I own a 2001 Nissan Maxima S and my car is experiencing the same problem. Have also taken to 3 different service providers, including dealer, and no one can solve issue. Thought it was related to bulletin posted by Nissan to replace transmission solenoid and computer. Wasted approx $1500 for that. My car only does this when it is 90 plus degrees outside and I have AC running full blast. Now checking the cooling system on car to see multiple parts are running properly. Dealer suggest that antifreeze solution should be 50/50 dilution and that if it is not it will cause car to run to hot and and thus cause transmission issues. Less expensive alternative to changing transmission but not sure it will work.

Anyone have experience with the following issue. Blower for AC works normally at the highest setting, regardless if air is recirculated or not, but stops blowing at the 1,2 or 3 settings. Looking for a fix I can do myself or a rough estimate on cost. With 140,xxx+ miles, I am not looking to spend a lot on repairs. Thanks

There's a resistor pack in the fan housing that needs to be replaced. It's about $30-40 at the dealer. Look under the glove box, and find a harness that plugs into the resistor pack. The resistor pack is held by two screws. When you get the new resistor pack, DO NOT try it on until you put it back in the housing - it's cooled by the air flow, and will quickly burn out otherwise.
#3882 of 4184 condensation problem
Aug 12, 2008 (9:56 am)
I have a 2003 Max.GLE. Lately I found out there is condensation on the floor mat in the back of the passanger side. I went to my machanic and found nothing wrong. But I know there is something causing the condensation.Anybody have this problem before? The condensation only found when the car was running for more than an hour. Please help, thanks.

Sounds like the drain plug for the evaporator core is clogged.

It's located in the dash between the a/c controls and the firewall. What you need to do is to get under the car and look in that area beneath the car for a hose that connects to it. Once you find that hose you can stick a wire into it and try to clear it. Careful if its full of water, it will dump on you.
Better yet have a mechanic look at it on you next oil change if you can wait that long.

replacing the fuel pump fixed the problem. too bad the dealership had to replace it twice because they screwed up the first time.
yeah i had the engine coil problem too, unrelated to this one.
#3887 of 4184 Maxima 2006
Aug 24, 2008 (9:38 am)
My 2006 Maxima was a nice car initially. At 21,000 miles, my tire(s) went out of round. It felt tlike the tire weights had fell off. The only solution is to replace all four tires, since you can't really replace one tire. The tires were Continental rejects I think. So, I bought 4 Michelins at Costco, cost just under $900. After paying $35,000. for a car, I had expected the tires to last 40-50,000 miles at that price. Then I discovered that these tires were falling apart all over the internet. Nissan cut corners or got sold a bill of goods by Continental. Cost a whole lot in customer good will.
Then battery died at 28,00 miles. Not a big deal, but annoying as Hell. Sears has a 5 yr. battery for $70 or so. What's wrong with the buyers? Then my radio/cd/sirius panel died at 31,000. Yes they replaced it under the warranty, but it took them a month to get the replacement from Panasonic. I was told that they had too many returns to keep up with demand. Yikes.! This is supposed to be a luxury type sedan.
I checked the label on the Hood to be sure it's a Maxima, and not a Saturn!

I am having the same problem with my 2003 Maxima GLE. Were you able to remedy the problem by yourself or did you need to take it in? If by yourself, how did you locate it? If at a mechanic or dealer, what should I ask them to check out, so I don't have them looking for everything?
