I bought a 2005 Maxima yesterday and it has some serious problems. The previous owner didn't want to mess with it and didn't give me any information to go on.

It had a dead battery so I jump started it. It fired up but had a high idle, slammed into reverse and when driving it wouldn't accelerate. I guess this is a limp mode.

All of the lights in the dash were lit up (TCS, ABS, Trac off, etc) except the service engine soon light, it's not on at all.

The tach and gas gauge aren't working and the climate control unit isn't functioning. I shut it off and restarted it a couple times yesterday, it stayed in limp mode. I tried to connect my code reader to it but it's not communicating with the car.

I charged the battery last night then popped it in and tried to start it, now it cranks and cranks but won't start.

I don't really know what could be causing all these problems and I don't know where to start, any help would be greatly appreciated.
