Electrical problem
1998 Nissan Maxima 113000 miles

The lights come on. But the car wont start. My battery is fully charged and I have no idea whether this is an alarm (factory) issue. I am sure that it isnt the altenator. What should/can I do?
Do you
have the same problem?

.I think someone tried to get into it. The engine isnt even starting up. Not at all. I am trying to do what you said. Even using my key. But its not working. How do I reset this factory alarm? So I can rule the alarm problem out.

If you dont have the remote
use the key to lock and then unlock the door that will deactivate the alarm
check the starter

Used parts is OK
I m not a big fan of a used electric parts ( but money talk )
but I don t think its much of a price difference between used and rebuilt
and I would go for the rebuilt if possible
good luck
