Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I replaced the battery to a '95 nissan maxima and also disconnect the alarm but it wont start a few hours after disconnecting the alarm

When the electrician disconnected the battery and turned on the car it roared to life but a few hours later when i wanted to drive it to work, it didnt turn on. no lights no flicker of anything. now it has been sitting for a while before we replaced the battery and disconnected the battery. a friend mentioned spark plugs? could that be the problem?

Hi, My advice would be to look for a wire going to the distributor then remove the wire that is part of old alarm system, you should only have one wire going to the distributor. Plugs should not be problem as it started at the dealers. Please leave me feed back Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.

SOURCE: help to disconnect my alarm

it sounds to me like you dont have a key less entry remote on the vehicle, I would check the small switch located behind the driver door lock tumbler (were the key goes in) and to do this
you need to remove the door panel, this switch knows when you
insert the key into the door and turn it to disable alarm, some times they break off - when the alarm goes off try unlocking the
vehicle on the passenger door.

  1. Connect diagnostic read-out tool to SMEC connector, then disconnect the speed sensor connector and ensure there are no pushed out or damaged terminals. Repair damaged terminals, then proceed to Test 38.
  2. If there are no damaged terminals, set diagnostic read-out tool to ``Read Sensor Values,'' and select ``Vehicle Speed.'' Connect a jumper wire at between black/light blue and white/orange wires of speed sensor connector. While reading diagnostic read-out tool, make and break jumper wire. If display reads any speed above 0 mph, replace speed sensor, then proceed to Test 38.
  3. If display reads 0 mph, turn ignition switch Off and disconnect 60-way connector from SMEC. Ensure there are no pushed out or damaged terminals. Repair damaged terminals, then proceed to Test 38. If there are no damaged terminals, proceed to step 4.
  4. With sensor disconnected, connect ohmmeter between 60-way connector terminal No. 67 and ground. If ohmmeter shows continuity, proceed to step 6. If ohmmeter does not show continuity, move meter lead from ground to white/orange wire of speed sensor connector.
  5. If ohmmeter indicates continuity, proceed to step 7. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, repair white/orange wire of 60-way connector for open circuit, then proceed to Test 38.
  6. Disconnect bulk head connector to instrument panel. If ohmmeter still indicates continuity, repair white/orange wire for a short to ground in harness, then proceed to Test 38. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, repair white/orange wire for a short to ground in instrument cluster area.
  7. Disconnect ohmmeter leads and connect ohmmeter between 60-way connector terminal No. 4 and sensor connector black/light blue wire. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, proceed to step 8. If ohmmeter indicates continuity, replace SMEC, then proceed to Test 38.
  8. If ohmmeter did not indicate continuity, repair black/light blue wire of speed sensor harness for an open circuit, then proceed to Test 38.

SOURCE: brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima

Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

Battery was dead, charged it, started jeep but will not keep running, is it the battery

It could be the battery, yes, but it could also be an alternator fault.

If the alternator is faulty -( usually when the rectifier pack on the back of the alternator burns out) - the battery can run to earth and become flat within seconds, or it feels like a misfire when driving.

I once had a car that needed the battery charging every time just in order to start it. Once running, there was a misfire. Then the battery was too flat to restart the car. It was an alternator fault.

Disconnect the plug/wiring from the rear of your alternator FIRST. Charge the battery. Leave the plug DISCONNECTED from the rear of the alternator. Start your vehicle.

If your vehicle starts and runs ok with the alternator wiring disconnected - the alternator is suspect. The usual culprits are the diodes in the rectifier pack (the bit on the rear of the alternator). Burnt out, they can cause a battery to become flat within - literally - seconds.

Leave the alternator disconnected and try starting the car several times. Switch on your headlamps and try and restart the vehicle a few times over a 15 minute period.

If it continually starts even when the headlamps are on, your battery probably is ok.

Even better ... take your vehicle to an auto electrician. It would probably take 2 minutes for them to dignose the problem. this saves you 'guessing' and buying replacement battery/parts that aren't at fault.

It doesn't sound as though you have a big problem .. just one of the many 'irritations' that we motorists suffer...

If the problem is the alternator there's no need to replace the whole unit - you can replace the rectifier pack on the rear. If it is the battery at fault (an auto electrician will tell you within seconds) .. well, that's life.

Sounds like a bad alternator. Boost vehicle and when running disconnect positive on battery, if shuts down probably alternator no good, replace.

That symbol means low voltage in the system, you have a dead or defective battery. These new sealed batteries can go out of the blue, starts fine and then a few minutes or hours later nothing, no crank no start. You can confirm the battery is the problem by honking the horn, it will dribble out a noise or not work at all if the battery is dead or nearly dead.

Im experiencing a power problem. My battery light was on, n later my car wouldnt start. I had to have it boosted off but it died a mile later.

It appears that your alternator is not charging so that the battery has been totally discharged. A boost start got you going again but with no charging as you drive it was only a matter of time for any slight charge to be used up. To get you going again temporarily have another vehicle give you a boost but leave their vehicle connected for at least 15 minutes with their engine running at a fast idle. This shiuld give you about 1 hours running providing you dont turn off the engine. Have the alternator output checked by an auto electrician.

Light's came on due to your alternator is defective, it's not putting out voltage any more and will have to be replace, the reason it started later, is your battery recharge itself, engine will only run till battery get low on voltage again, have the charging system check out, hope this was very helpful.

The sideview mirror lights and windows have

I am pretty sure it is the body control module. My 02 sable is currently having a similar issue. On a random day my girlfriend took the car to the store, the car started honking when she went to re-enter the vehicle. never done that before. Later that night the left front turn signal will not shut off. the turn signal light on the dash stays on solid, this morning the bright light indicator was on solid and the turn signals worked perfectly fine until the blinker light eventually went back to on all the time. I disconnect the battery at night or if I am not going to drive it for a few hours. But I am 99% certain it is the BCM causing this.
