2004 Nissan Maxima ProblemsAC Not Cold Due to Pressure Hose Leak
The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a primary ignition signal fault. Many times the cause is an ignition coil(s) that has failed. The problem in the coil causes the spark energy to feedback through the wiring harness into the other coils. If this is not repaired, it can damage the other coils (blistering on the coils may be seen).
If the power steering pump develops leaks, it can drip onto the lower control arm bushing causing the bushing to deteriorate. A knocking noise will be heard when driving over bumps and it may become more difficult to control the vehicle.

2004 Nissan Maxima RecallsNissan Recalls 2004-2006 Maximas Due to Misrouted Seat Wire Harness
Nissan has recalled 2004-2006 Maxima models equipped with the driver preferred package because the wire harness from the driver's seat power lumbar support switch may be routed incorrectly, which can cause it to pinch under the driver's seat. A pinched harness, in combination with driving vibration, may result in a short circuit in the harness that could lead to a fire in the seat. Dealers will replace the wire harness and route it correctly.
Nissan has recalled 2004 Maxima models equipped with skyview roofs because the glass for the roof may not have been quenched properly after the forming process, resulting in temper imbalance. This may create excessive internal stress in the glass, which can cause the glass to shatter and possibly injure someone. Dealers will inspect and replace the glass in the skyview roof.
