A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2004 Nissan Maxima
- heater/AC blower fan stuck on high, FAN won't even turn off when push OFF button
- I recently was told the reason my steering wheel was vibrating when I accelerate was b/c my Cylinder 5 was misfiring and the reason they didn't find it was that they did a minor not major tune-up. Does this make sense? Should this repair cost $400?
- The car idles roughly at startup and makes a rattling sound under the hood.
- How much would a basketball size dent in my rear bumber be? It is right under my tailight and didnt effect the light or paint.

2004 Nissan Maxima Questions

2004 Nissan Maxima Recalls
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.

When I went to get it repaired. The mechanic also noticed that the engine mounts were almost all gone and that the radiator mounts were all torn. The body, engine, heating /cooling, and electri...
