    Are you sure the brake lights work? if they don't the lockout solenoid will not get any signal to disengage the park lockout.

Replace the brake pedal switch, it is mounted in front of the brke pedal, this is what makes the silanoid work, if it is not working the silanoid will not.

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 s transmission won't shift out of 1st gear after being replaced.


first try to manually unlock the shift lock mechanism located on gear shift selector and if that does not work check to see if the linkage is lined up correctly with the according gears, good luck the answer lays within the time of removal and installation, just double check everything.

My daughter has a 1997 Nissan Altima and the key is stuck in the ignition. The car will start up and run just fine, she just can't get the key out. I guess the ignition won't turn back far enough. Thanks


it sounds like the shift lock thinks the car is still in gear check the shift lock solenoid a make sure it's working properly and you may be able to move it to where itis reading that the car is in park if it does try turning the key on off and removing it if it works replace the solenoid

M.Bradbury 31.10.09 2004 Nissan xtrail tspec auto. gear shift stuck in park, have to use shift release button. Was told by Nissan that it is an ignition barrel fault i.e. worn so needs new ignition barrel...


it could be the solenoid that releases the lock on the shift,when you press the brake pedal the shift lock should release when the key is in the ignition and you can the move the shift,you need to check the soleniod near the TBar

2006 Altima won't shift into reverse or park


Is there any warning lights or malfunction besides this?? There are three main parts that may cause this: Park/Neutral safety switch(located on the transmission), Brake pedal switch(located at the brake pedal), Shift lock solenoid(located below the shifter). P/N safety switch prevents the shifter from shifting out of (P) or shifting into (R/P) while vehicle is in motion. Brake pedal switch sends a signal to release the shifter lock to shift out of park. Shift lock, locks the shifter as describe above and is located at the shifter base. I recommend inspection/replacement of the shift lock solenoid and P/N safety switch as its an intermitted problem. Hopefully this helps

1994 Nissan Altima shifter will not shift out of park


The shift interlock can be malfunction.

Have someone check the brake light as you press on the brake.

If the brake light DOES NOT come on then you can start


checking for fuse

test the brake switch.connector

and brake switch.


When the safety circuit does not see the brake being apply then it shifter will remain lock.
