i've been looking for some anwer to do the nissan maxima repair i have same problem, and found this one. It should be in the fues block. If you turn the key you should hear it click. Now, I am betting you need to probe the wire at the starter to see if you are getting twelve volts to the small post. If not work your way back. Or, if you are getting fire it is the starter and since you can push start the car and it was a rebuilt unit that was installed two eyars ago my money is on the starter being defective.

I have a 1998 Nissan Maxima with 146K miles and I'm living in Kansas. When I start my car in the winter early morning for the last few days, the engine is cranking without starting. The engine will crank for few seconds and it will shut off. After 9-10 tries, the engine will start. The battery seems to be fine.After I drive the car for some time and if I start the car within 3-4 hours , it is starting fine. When I went to the mechanic , he told me that everything seems to be fine with the engine(at the time when I went to mechanic yesterday my car stated with one try). Can you please provide suggestion what can I do to correct this problem. Thanks!
