The most likely culpret is a faulty radiator fan relay or a blown fuse. Fans are intended to force air through the radiator when the car is sitting still and reaches about 200 degrees F. If you turn your A/C on the fans should operate all the time. If the fans operate for A/C you may have a faulty temperature sensor.
Even though you have already replaced the thermostat, there are other issues that can cause your Nissan Maxima to overheat. Your fan may be stuck and not operating as it should.
Low coolant, stuck thermostat, blown headgasket (from overheating BEFORE) or a damaged (rusted) water pump.
could be your thermostat is stuck or perhaps and needs to be replaced.
You might have to pry it, if push comes to shove.
Sometimes they are stuck to the back side of the deck lid.
If the stat is stuck open,your car will slowly overheat and not reach normal operating temperature, if it is stuck closed it will overheat very quickly.
if your horn is stuck on makin noise pull the fuse out... or you can remove the whole horn assembly from underneath the hood
brake/shift interlock switch needs replacing
In the 91 Nissan Maxima the trunk can sometimes get stuck due to the key being hung up in valet mode. Valet mode is entered by turning the key counterclockwise until it lays horizontal. The key may be stuck in valet mode. If this is suspected spray WD40 in the keyhole and worked around a bit.
If you're stuck in traffic and your water is low, even a little, it will overheat... or your thermostat is not opening all the way. Or your fan is not kicking in at temperature. Make sure your antifreeze is properly mixed, beause it is a coolant, too.
your transmission is out. your transmission is out.
why is my 2006 Nissan altima gear shift stuck in park
You should be able to hear it when the car is turned on and turned off, even if the antenna is broken off or stuck and won't go up or down.

There could be a couple of reasons why a Nissan vehicle could be stuck in park. The shifter could be stuck or broken. The transmission may also be out or in need of fluid.
Your thermometer may be stuck shut.
Thermostat is stuck closed.
make sure that the car is in park. if the car is on anything other than park the key will not come out of the ignition. took me over an hour to figure it out when it happened to me. hope this helps!
Usually the car would run cool, unless the thermostat is stuck partially open.
If it was stuck closed the engine would overheat soon after starting up, probably within 10 minutes.
Probably the traffic. 'I was stuck in traffic'.
A stuck or incorrectly installed thermostat.

generally if an engine overheats, but then does not overheat when heater is turned on, is a good indication that the engine thermostat is stuck and needs replacing
Low coolant level, or the cooling fan(s) are not energizing due to a bad fan motor, sensor, or relay- maybe even a broken wire. Engine coolant temperature sensor will cause that everytime... more likely than anything else because it only does it when stuck in traffic or stop sign to stop sign and not on open road.
