MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR! Only use 92 or higher octane fuel and add injector cleaner to the fuel tank at least once a month!

If the hesitation is when you accelarate, it could be bad spark plugs and/or wires/distributor cap and rotor.

My 97 did that and it turned out to be bad O2 sensors. If they check out o.k., then it may be the EGR valve.

my 94 maxima did that and the check engine light was on...stalled a lot from that reason, got it checked out and it turned out to be an O2 sensor, when the repair was complete the check engine light went off too.

My '96 Maxima used to hesitate when I was idling, I used carburetor cleaner in the throttle valve (I think that is what it is called), and it is the point after the air in take and after the air filter where it goes into a sliver valve. When spraying it remember to increase acceleration. The car might stall a few times, it says on the back of the cleaner it might stall as well, just start it back up and do again.

On my '92 Maxima, it turned out to be the timing was off.

I have a 99 Maxima (same car) and had this problem. My car stalled and even died on me at stop lights. I replaced the O2 sensor but the car continued to stall. I found out that the factory ignition coils was the problem. I replaced all 6 ignition coils and have not had a problem since.

FYI: If you go to the dealer for 6 ignition coils, they will kill you. it will cost about 800 and more. I had to change one, I got it from www.rockauto.com for 57$ + tx + shipping ended up costing about 80$ and changed it by my self.

The bumper cover changed in 1997. A '97, '98, or '99 fog light will not fit on a '95 or '96 maxima

Those bulbs blow too... Your dealer should have em. Its only about 5 screws to take out the instrument panel and the bulbs screw out.

the car must be scanned with a scan tool capable of working with nissans, and a capable mechanic must determine the fault causing the light to come on, and then repair it. just clearing the light does nothing

Go to auto zone and have the codes read for free. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY I disconnected the battery and the light did not reset On my '95 maxima I have to leave the battery disconnected for ~24 hours to reset the engine lignt. On my 1987 Maxima there is a button to push to reset the light. It is located underneath the passenger kick panel. On my 1999 Maxima I had to disconnect the battery for 24 hours : Go to autozone and have them clear it, easiest way, go to yoru local mechanic, he should have a obd scan tool, pay to have him remove it.

The Air Bag light is on because there is a problem with the SRS. The SRS should only be repaired by a qualified technician. Due to the inherent danger involved with working on the SRS, this is not a DIY repair. The technician will reset the light after the repair.

Disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes will sometimes reset the light, but no always. If not, you will need to reset it with an OBD2 scan tool. But, you can reset the light all you want but unless you repair the problem that caused the light to come on in the first place it will come back on in probably less than 1 mile of driving. To get the car inspected you will have to repair it.

There are several reasons the Check Engine light comes on. It could be as simple as making sure the gas cap is properly screwed on in which case the light will reset itself soon after. It could be the thermostat issues, MAF sensors, switches etc. If the light stays on permanently, you should take it to a repair shop to get the engine diagnosis done and they will tell you exactly what the problem is.

To change the trunk light in a 2002 Nissan Maxima, a person will need to unscrew the cover over the light. Then they can remove the old bulb and replace with a new one. Then screw the lens cover back on.

You need the have the abs codes checked. You can then diagnose and repair the cause.
