Nissan Maxima Accessories and Modifications

    I am refurbishing my son's trashed 1997 Maxima SE while he goes through Marine training. I need a gear shift knob, console cover (the part over the cig lighter), seat covers, and advice on radio/CD player repair/replacement. Can anyone direct me to resources?

    When you enter a destination, it will calculate the fastest route, shortest route, and minimize highway route (often all the same depending on where you live. In Pittsburgh where there's no direct route to get anywhere, they are often different). It will automatically default to whatever option you have programmed in your settings, but before you accept you have the opportunity to select one of the other routes.
  • probably hold down the lock and unlock together for 2 seconds. My remote has these instructions stamped on the back
  • I am looking to replace as soon as tail lights burn out with led lights, i searched ebay and, but cannot find any. I will not replace a whole assembly just bulbs.
    also what should I replace to shorten brake distance and improve g force? Tires? Tires+ rotors and ceramic pads?

    Just leased a 2007 Maxima and we are considering this accessory. Has anyone tried this accessory on a late-model Maxima? Does it help with the wind/noise while the sunroof is open?

    How hard is it to install?


  • our 2007 SE came with one, dealer installed. It does cut down on wind nose. Can't tell right off how it is installed, I will try to take a closer look in the morning and post if I find something telling. (This is the Nissan supplied deflector.)
  • Took a closer look at how the deflector is installed. 2 brackets fit over front edge of the roof opening and the plastic deflector is mounted to the brackets with hex screws. I could not tell if the molding around the lower part is taped down.
    Hope this helps. :shades:

    Thanks. Before I get one I will try to see if the dealer has a Maxima on-site with one installed that I can test drive.

    I have a 2006 Maxima that currently has the factory Bose XM Sat built in. I would like to switch this to Sirius. Does anyone know what needs to be done, approx how much and where is best place to get parts?

    I believe that you will have to purchase the Sirius tuner and antenna from Nissan if you want to stick with factory parts, the bracket to hold the tuner under the dash will be the same. The dealer in Albuquerque has the tuner for $205.00 and the antenna for $62.50.
    You may also want to go to the Sirius website as Sirius and XM has merged, don't know what that means for programing in the immediate future. :shades:

    Did anyone try to install running daylights on Maxima 2004? Canadian cars have this option, but her the dealer told me it's unavailable...

    If you remove the XM receiver, I would be interested in buying it.

    My 04 Maxima has the same HID projector lights, but they dont seem as intense/blue as they should be. It looks the same as halogen but bright, but not as intense as they should be. Should I install new lights?

    I too had a crack in my winshield from the road, and my insurance company recommended Safelite glass company they came to my house and replaced it, they did a good job and I can't even tell the difference.

    Yes it definitely help with the wind noise, it makes a big difference. I strongly reccommend it you won't regret it.

    I have 05 Maxima and my HID also as bright as halogens. My guess Nissan made it so to last longer.
  • Does anybody know what type on xenon lights are on the 04-06 Maxima? And how to maybe replace a headlight?
  • I have an 02 Maxima. I just put in the switches for the heated seats and hooked up the wiring under the console to the switches. does anyone know what I am supposed to hook up under the seats or if there are other components or fuses I need to put in? The switches have power to them but it doesnt seem to have power to the seats. I have a service manual for the car but it might as well have been written in greek cause I cant make sense of it. thanks in advance. David
  • They are easy to install.I bought mine on ebay for around 50 or 60 bucks. took about 30 minutes to install.
