If you do not hear the starter turn then it is often a switch inside of
it. Typically for cars that old the starter needs to be replaced then.
Sometimes you can get it to work with a hammer...
Assuming the fuel pump starts and the starter motor is engaging but the
engine is not starting, you might have an intermittent bad Engine Cont
relay. It's the relay under the hood in the relay box on the drivers side
fender. Open it up and tap on the Engine Cont relay.
My 90 did the same thing, only it would quit dead while driving and would
sometimes start right up, sometimes not.
This is one of the 3rd gen Maxima's little gremlins we've all talked about
here. Sounds like an ignition problem. Other gremlins are bad crank angle
sensor, bad ignition module, bad MAF sensor and bad fuel pumps.

I've been had a 96 nissan maxima SE almost 10 yrs. The problem i got is the
starter hasn't started when the weather below 40 degree C. Abose 40 is OK. I
recently have just put the remote starter but with this problem I can't start
in the winter time so i have to knwo why and solve it...but i don't know how!!
! Also, i have to push the gas pedal while starting it. Anyone knows why? I
have read lot of bad thing about this issue but they are not relate to the
issue that i have got. Please help me out if someone knows.
1st, clean your throttle body. It will do wonders for cold starts. 2nd,
either replace your starter or re-grease it. On the 95-99 Maxima, the
starter is very easy to get to.
Use this site, motorvate. Look in the engine section He's got excellent
write-ups and pics on your Maxima;
Pls define "won't start" more detailly to get more detailed answer...
If its VGE -engine, it has cracked distributor cap... replace cap wires
plugs. Check http://www.cardomain.com/ride/748507/12
Fuel hose stiffens as/if/when pressure goes up. Does it?
