These bigger fuses are sometimes bolted in. If you are looking at the fuse box under the hood, look on either side of the box. You should see little bolts to remove that will let the 100 amp come out. Oh yeah, disconnect the battery first!!!...Chris

Something is drawing power I have a 06 Nissan Altima. I have replaced ,battery ,alternator ,n the starter .Something is still draining the battery .

the first thing to do is to check things like the trunk/boot light is not staying on then if you are a technical then use a multimeter on amps setting in series with a disconnected battery terminal neg is best. then start to remove fuses from the fuse boxes one at a time until you find the current drain the drain should only be a few milliamps ie,100 or less not then you have a clue to the problem area make sure all doors are latched before you test

My 2008 nissan maxima will not start. The key turns but no power or lights. I replaced the battery recently and had the alternator tested.

If you have no power for lights or the ignition, the problem is between the battery and the fuse box. There should be a maxi fuse of 100 amp or more that could be burned.
The headlights are on a different circuit to the key switch but everything runs thru the maxi fuses. You would need to take a test light or meter and trace the power and ground cables from the battery out.

A friend of my son's hooked the jumper cables up wrong on my son's nissan 2002 Xterra. The 100 amp battery fuse blew but welded itself in the fuse box. We tried getting it out and eventually broke the...

This fuse is attached to the fuse box by screws which may be under the fuse box. 100 amp automobile fuses are always fastened in by screws and do not just push in/pull out like lower amp fuses.
Hope this helps.

Oil capacity for my 01 nissan x terra

The 3.3liter motor requires 3.8 quarts of oil. 5w30 should be a good oil for the extreme conditions required in your climate. Most new car manufacturers now recommend 5w30w so that says volumes - hope this helps!
