hello, I just purchased a 04 max SE back in December. First Nissan and having a lot of issues with it the drive home alone. Problem was I had someone pick it up for me out of town, a mistake Iíll never make again. I own it. Now Iím stuck with this lemon is seems but really want to keep the car. It wonít start now. Among a long list of basic maintenance thatís been overlooked, itís had some really weird electrical problems since it decided not to start. Parked it one day after work, and upon trying to start the next day, nothing. Dash lights up, all lights turn on without dimming the cluster, battery is charged. Now the weird **** is, the windshield wipers are turning in without the switch being on. As soon as the keys on. And the radio powers up, but wonít turn on to the am/fm CD tape anything. Says the time and some settings displayed but wonít do anything with the mileage or fuel economy. Any idea what the hells going on?? I assume my started seized, plan on getting a new one. It clicks at the fuse box and the gauge lights all go off when I turn to start but not cranking or solenoid clicking. Random side question - anyone have a diagram of the transmission cooler lines or where they are located if it had one.

that might be the case, but is a fun car to drive. this is the second one I have. 5th and 6th gens. 5 gen went out after an accident ( not my fault ) was manual and had over 200.00 and the thing would pull hard . the 6gen was my wife it was neglected for a couple of years after it was given to my brother in law . after that I decided to take it back since he didn't care for it. is now back running and on its way to recovery. to me is just fun bring it back to full life.
by no means I know anything about this cars but I'm learning in the process.
