Have you tried checking your Nissan starter (http://www.shopnisparts.com/nissan-starter/)? Double check everything thats related to your starter or consult your repair manual (http://www.shopnisparts.com/nissan-repair-manual/) if you have one with your car.

thank you for your reply's. I put the car in the shop it was to puzzling to me, so far i got a call saying they think its the cam shaft censor but who knows. So once the problem is diagnosed ill post the problem. thank you again

thats a possibilty cause the cam angle sensor tells the ecu when to fire so probably is that let us know when you get it back.

Your car has no distributor. I also own a 1999 maxima. it has individual ignition coils at each spark plug. I personally dislike this design. A centralized ignition module seems to make more sense.

However, back to your original question....

My '99 maxima seem sto have the same problem yours has. I have narrowed the problem down to the transponder in the key telling the computer to lock the engine into theft mode and will not send injector pulse signal to fuel injectors (I also replaced the fuel pump first and with no results).
My uncle has a reputable garage and a sophisticated scanner which pinpointed the theft mode and lack of injector pulse.

Unfortunately I have not yet gotten the car running because the dealer and every source of information I have come across all indicate that this problem with the transponder in the key is dead and now all keys will give same result without nissan specific key reprogrammer (an expensive device which I have so far been unable to convince my beloved uncle to purchase). I abhor the thought of taking it to the dealership. Seems rather akin to raising the rear end and taking an obstruction up the tailpipe to me........$$$

Anyway...

I hope this information is of some assistance. If you pursue this recommended course of action and have any success with your Maxima please let me know through this very useful forum. I am also curious to know how much the above mentioned procedure would cost to correct....

ttfn.....

I was also first advised to check the camshaft position and crankshaft position sensors. Alas, all were found to be in good working order. Also checked all other engine sensors and relays....Hooked to unckies big fancy 'puter and shazam!!! no injector pulse ... theft control response

So this week it is most likely off to the dealer for a proctology report....
