Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra
Once car is started and my foot is on the brake, I cannot immediately push in the release mechanism to put it in drive. It usually takes anywhere from 10 to 60 seconds for this to allow me to push in the gearshifter and move it away from park. I've tried pumping the brake, re-releasing the emergency brake and jiggling the handle. Nothing seems to help. Someone said it may be a problem with the interlock mechanism? But I'm unfamilar with that and am not sure how to go about checking to see if that's what it is.
Remove the center console covering the shifter and you will see the solenoid sometimes they get dirty and wont release otherwise check for power and ground with the brake applied if you have both replace the solenoid

Tips for a great answer:
