Having problems with your 1999 Nissan Maxima ?

I just bought a 1997 nissan maxima. It will not start. I took it to the mechanic I have used for years. He doesn't specialize in Nissans. He said That the relay from the BSM module is not getting the signal. He could not fix it.

Answers :

What is a BSM module?? Do you mean ECM??/computer?? Chek all fuses. There is a ECCS fuse in fuse box, which powers up the relay for the ECM /computer circuit. Does the "service engine soon" light come on, when key is in ACC position?? Post result.Let me know what you find.
Engine need air,fuel,spark and timing to run,if you dont have one of these,obviousley it wont run,are you mechanically inclined to check these?if not,i recommend taking to a shop that does specialize in nissans

Car would not start after beginning to idle rough and then stalling out. AAMCO said that it was the fuel pump and wanted to change fuel pump and module. I had the pump changed but not the module, the car still idles very rough and stall's quicky. I've been reading that it could be the pump relay. Is this the same as the pump module? Another huge issue that is likely another cause is that the fuel was very dirty. It was a soupy brown color, like hot cocoa without the light brown fo

U can see that the fuel pump is working but the car will not start. We have changed the fuel filter an there is gas getting to the carborator but very little. If u put gas directly into the carborator it will start then die out. Someone said it could be the fuel pump presure relay. Do u think it could be that if so were is it located on the 1984 fleetwood 4.1 liter?


If you can loosen the fuel line where it connects to the carburetor, do that while cranking the engine to see iof there is pressure at the carburetor. If yes, next take the cover off of the carburetor to see if fuel is flowing into the float bowl. ... Cadillac Fleetwood

Am I on the right track here. do you think a relay could solve this problem?

Where is the fuel pump relay on an F350 Ford Diesel 7.3L Engine. One posted said it was behind the radio and the radio has a special tool required to take it out. The truck died over a week ago. We thought it was the computer module which we just replaced. No wait to start light. Think it may be this relay.

Took my 2004 nissan sentra 1.8l to dealership to get catalytic converter changed due to restriction. Well they said it was the timing chain needing adjustment. Well that didn't fix it. So they now put new catalytic converter on and it runs great except on start up. It runs rough on startup. I have antifreeze in the oil and comming out of the tailpipe and I am throwing the p0300 code random cylinder misfire. Could they have caused the head gasket to leak by adjusting the timing chain?


HI. The random misfire will be the result of compression leaks, due to the damaged head gasket, in this case. The leaky head gasket is allowing for the coolant to be introduced into the cylinder chambers, thus, disrupting normal combustion and compre ... 2004 Nissan Sentra
