What is needed to install a Bose CD cassette system in a 1997 non Bose Nissan Maxima?

Hello, if you want to install a Bose CD cassete in a 97 Nissan Maxima you will need to rewire the sound system in your car in order to have a wiring as required by Bose systems. Non Bose systems don't have the "finesse" that Bose systems have, that is, Bose systems requires shielded wires and cables to carry electrical signals to the amplifyers, that usually are disposed one per speaker in the 97 Maxima. Bose systems are very sensitive and have some relays and things like that to command the premium sound quality in the vehicle. It takes into account even the surface of the seats. The most important is: if you want to put a Bose system in your 97 Nissan Maxima, please find the speakers and the amps for the 97 Nissan Maxima, not from other Bose car system, as it will not work properly. Bose systems are specific design for a specific car. The first thing you can do is to go to and download the Nissan Maxima Factory Service Manual to see the wiring scheme, get the cables and speakers and amps and hands on work. Good luck.

How much it cost to replace Alternator is Nissan Maxima 2001 GLE Dealer told you that you have to replace the alternator How can you make sure that it is really needed to be replaced?

Depending on where you live, you MAY be able to find a local auto parts retailer that has the ability to test your alternator. They generally test the entire charging system and do not charge for the service since they're trying to get you to buy parts from them. You're right to not trust the dealer, their mechanics are paid partially by commission and tend to want to replace as many parts as they can.

it has to want to change, forcing a change may do more harm than good... everyone should have a manual for their vechicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the reference section for FREE to make copies of--the PRO manual has more detailed info, and may have wiring diagrams when up and fix 'em like a PRO...good luck Dave :)
