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).

2006 Nissan Maxima RecallsNissan Recalls 2006 Models Due to Possible Cracked Bracket
Nissan has recalled 2006 Maxima and Altima models because the rear subframe may have been manufactured incorrectly, which could result in a crack in the bracket that holds part of the rear suspension. If the bracket cracks, the stability of the vehicle may be affected, which could lead to a loss of control and a possible crash. Dealers will inspect the rear subframe to determine if it was manufactured incorrectly and replace it, if necessary.
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.
