Safety neutral switch at tranny may be faulty or may just need adjustment if possible on your vehicle.

Check the adjustment on the nuetral safety switch on the transmission, if that doesn't fix the issue replace the neutral safety switch.

What's causing transmission problems?


You have a ground problem. Since it starts battery to engine ground is good. You need to check or add ground wires from the battery to the body, from the engine to body, and I put an extra ground wire from the transmission to the engine.

Using key start, instrument panel illuminates but why won't it turn over?


Dirty battery posts...(loose) or locked starter...sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer to make it work one time to confirm...Hope this helps.

Nissan mistral auto 1998 losing power and sometimes stalls have to push red pin on gear shift lever to start.


The red pin on the gearshift lever is to allow selection of neutral in an emergency when the key is not in the ignition, because there is an interlock between the gearshift lever and the brake pedal. When you start the car normally you will hear the click of a relay when you stand on the brake to select any gear.
It sounds like there is a problem with the alignment of the lockout switch either on the gear lever or the switch or relay connected to the brake circuit.
get the codes read on the computer to give you some indication. I can't see how this has anything to do with the losing of power.
these vehicles have a reputation for problems with the eart straps from the engine, trans etc to the chassis. Remove and clean theses connection straps at both ends, and check their continuity with a meter, as sometimes they can break in the middle under the insulation from the vibration and movement of the components under braking and acceleration. Because the ECU depends on good electrical signals, and disturbance of the earth distorts the signal received.....

Transmission snapping when shifting gears( when changes gears)


Could be a problem with the throttle position sensor. It's clearly an electrical issue. Besides the noise, how does the transmission shift? Is it smooth, or does it slam into each gear, or does it seem unusually soft. Shifts should be firm but smooth.

1993 Nissan Altima Gearshifter or Transmission problem


Sounds like a neutral safety switch in problem #1 and a sticky or faulty solinoid in problem #2
The tranny has quite a few solinoids that are electronic which sometimes burn out or fail with high mileage.
Hope this helps
