    Car will not turn over, audible single solenoid fire when trying to start. Battery is fully charged. What is the recommended fix, other than a replacement component? Dealership could not provide help.

    I bought my Maxima in 2012 with only 38,000 miles. Was in great condition and garage kept. Since I have had it, I have had to replace 4 engine coils. I have replaced #1, #4 and #6(twice as of today). I was just made aware of a bulletin from Nissan stating that an engine wire harness failure had been causing similar problems. Wonder if they will reimburse for the coils I have paid for.
