The mechanic suggested that the failure may be fuel system related and he replaced the fuel pump, filters, wiring harness, and starter. It is easily accessed in this particuar model, under the rear seat. The switch is usually located around the passengers kickpanel. Shut it off and pressure drops as before.
The wipers also do not work. It was again serviced for the same thing in 2008 and then again in 2009. Returned car to service department on 1-31-04 along with a cloth containing the residue from the tail pipes.

With key turned on nothing. Remove the plastic panel that is by the driver's side door near the floor close to the speaker when the door is closed and underneath the fuse box.
Both have to send signals to the Engine Computer for it to turn on the fuel pump relay. I didn't pull all the injectors because it didn't seem to be worth taking off the intake manifold to get to them. Call 44 0 1274 029809 email westyorkshireengines gmail. I would floor accelerator and nothing would happen. The pressure jumps about 5 psi as expected and there is no fuel leaking out the vacuum line. I am simply appalled by the lack of concern from Nissan. Finally realized it would start but only after a very long crank.
I would floor accelerator and nothing would happen. Also the fuel hose stiffens when pressure is up. Now there should be +12V at the connector, pump should start whirring. Then suspect bad fuse or pump. Fuel pressure gauge indicates that the fuel pump is providing 35psi at idle and throtlling up gives it another 6psi or so. Youre alive and own a maxima - problems can come in any human made tingie. This was the ninth time that the vehicle has been in the shop for various problems, transmission, fuel pump, and axle.
From the top there is a cable that goes toward the driverside, follow it to the connector which should be cover by a small piece of foam. Often, I can not fill it up anymore at that pump. Pretty simple to remove but I recommend extreme caution while doing any thing with fuel. Prior to the appt, I noticed a major discrepancy between the 2 fuel instrument gauges. Excessive oil consumption is the main problem reported by owners.
The part arrived on 9-25-2007, and I drove 3 hours back to orangeburg to pick up my car and return the rental. It is under a oval like compartment cover. It should light up on one of them indicating there's a good circuit through the fuel pump motor. Then worked my way to the fuel pump relay. It cranks and starts after getting a bit and I think holding down or pumping gas pedal helps it start.
I decided to see if doing a oil change spark plugs and air filter would help it didn't. If a person is driving a defected vehicle that has a defected and malfunctioned alternator that causes the engine to shutoff and die in the middle of a highway or street then a huge accident can occur and it will cause the driver and passengers to die or even get severely or permanently injured.

If doesn't start, bad pump. If it is a fuel injected car, turn key on as you would to prime it, then turn off.

The information you provided made it possible to narrow down the source of the problem and avoided a possible waste of time and money. I did check the fuel pump fuse and it was blown. Service engine light was on.
Thanks for posting the pics. I called the tow truck he was able to make it turn back on. You may have to re … place the pump cradle with level sensor but the pump should be O. Check fuel filter, could be clogged, change it out and try to start, if starts. I drove the car home from the accident scene. This urgent problem needs to taken cared of asap or else it will be dangerous for driver and passenger's life. Also check spark from multiple plugs; one or two coilpacks can be dead.
