2001 Nissan Maxima ProblemsOxygen Sensor May Fail Due to Leaking Power Steering Pump
Oxygen sensor failures are common due to fluid leaks from the power steering pump. The power steering pump typically leaks directly onto the sensor and causes the wiring to fail. If the leaks are not repaired when the oxygen sensor is replaced, the sensor will fail again.
The ground inside mass air flow (MAF) sensor can corrode and possibly cause drivability problems. The corrosion is enough to affect the sensor data but not enough to create a trouble code. Diagnosing this can be difficult because it won't always illuminate the Check Engine Light.
The idle speed control motor may fail and possibly damage the engine's engine control unit.

I use to be able to hit the blower motor and make it work but not anymore. If I move the wiring, it comes on but not for long.
2001 Nissan Maxima RecallsInjury Due to Airbag Deployment
Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.
