Steering is in a bind were wireless key cannot activate. Move steering wheel to the left and right while trying to start. I had the same problem and this is what the Nissan dealership told me to do. I't worked like a dream.

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

SOURCE: 2006 Nissan X Trail Gear Shift Stuck in Park.

This is not a permanent fix, but you'll be able to shift and drive...this is a "safety feature" when you're break lights aren't working...it may be a fuse issue, i found that didn't help either.

How to drive it while it's "broken" On the top left of your gear shift is circle that looks like a button that is only 3/4 there...see picture (it's circled in red)

pry that off with a key or something... now restart your car, push on the break and at the same time insert a key or something into the now open hole...while pushing down use the other key to shift into reverse. You will need to do the same thing to shift back into park.

Good heavens that is the most inneficient safety feature I've ever heard of. How about instead of leaving the car immoble and keeping you in a scetchy neihborhood to get mugged they just "invent" a warning light notification. grr

Why ignition won't turn


By far the most likely reason that one can't turn the key in the ignition is because the car was parked with the wheels turned. There is a security feature that locks the steering when the key is removed to prevent a thief from driving the car.
When the car is parked with the front wheels other than strait, the weight of the car will cause the wheels to try to straiten, If this engages the steering lock pressure is put on the ignition switch.
To start the car, look to see what direction the wheels are pointing. grasp the steering wheel and turn it TOWARD the direction the wheels are turning and now start the car.
Other causes may include wrong key, damaged ignition or other causes that may require a professional.

Normally when a component of the ignition is disconnected it disables the steering. If the steering works and the car starts without it, it should be fine.

If you need to be that close to the car to start , you still have a bad to low battery.,You notice that you had to get close to it.If you are sure absolutly have a new battery enter the car put key in regular position leave key in for 2 minutes cylce it off there see if it will start back in it normal range.

Locked via keyless with engine running


Most newer cars have a safety feature that locks the door when the ignition is turned on or the car is put in gear. This can sometimes be a problem, as you found out, if the keys are left in the ignition in the on position and you get out of the car shutting the door sometimes this safety feature kicks in and locks the door on you with the keys in the car. I understand this was a mistake on your part, thinking you did take the keys, but if you ever just stop with the car running and jump out to run in the house, roll down the window enough to get your arm in to unlock the door.
