Nissan Maxima ProblemsLow Pressure AC Hose May Leak at Crimped Connection
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.

Nissan Maxima RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Does Not Deploy In A Crash
The occupant classification system may not appropriately detect an occupant in the passenger front seat, and as a result may not power the passenger frontal air bag for deployment in an accident. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control unit and occupant classification system electronic control unit in some vehicles, replacing the occupant classification system electronic control unit additionally in other vehicles free of charge to resolve the concern.
The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that may result in a lack of brake fluid pressure control. This can result in extended stopping distances when braking, or erratic operation of the anti-lock brake system or vehicle dynamic control system. Dealers will inspect and replace the anti-lock brake system actuator as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The front brake caliper bolts may not be tightened properly. This can result in the calipers becoming detached, reducing braking ability. Dealers will inspect and tighten the bolts as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
