SOURCE: 1999 nissan frontier overdrive problem

juan: there is a cable which comes from the transmission to the throttle linkage. This is called the TV (throttle valve) cable. This is designed to work in conjunction with the position of the throttle. I'm sure you heard the term "KICK DOWN SWITCH". Well this essentially is doing the same thing. If the cable is out of adjustment, it will have a tendency to want to downshift into 3rd.
Even though overdrive is electrically actuated, it can be disengaged by the throttle position.
There is also a coolant temp sensor which keeps the transmission from shifting into overdrive until the coolant temperature reaches a certain point. The sensor tells the ECM to tell the Solenoid it's ok to supply a ground to it.
Your overdrive switch provides a ground to actuate the overdrive solenoid. Make sure the switch has a solid ground serving the circuit.
The torque converter solenoid picks up it's ground from the ECM.
Both solenoids are served by the same power source which is a switched circuit through the ignition.
I hope I have shed some new light on your problem and given you some new direction in which to look. I hope I have helped you resolve your problem. If not, I'll be watching and will be ready to offer more help if needed. ..mybunkey

SOURCE: How to replace a A/T over run clutch solenoid on a 2006 Nissan frontier truck

what is wrong with the trans? i would start with checking your coolant in radiator and overflow bottle. let truck cool off and check coolant. make sure its nice and clean and green in color. not milky white. start there and let me know. we have seen radiator issues where coolant mixes with trans fluid and destroys trans. other than that those transmissions are pretty bullet proof. if your coolant is milky color, then that is a big problem. you will need new trans and radiator replaced. and to answer your question, the solenoid pack is inside of the transmission bolted to the valve body. you will need to open the unit from the bottom and replace solenoid pack.start with checking coolant first.

2005 pathfinder will not shift into overdrive


Pull the valve body & clean it

After that, you will have to change the
proper solenoid & as far as I know, they
can not be had individually yet,should be
soon, as that vehicle has been made for 10 or 11 years

The only difference in your 05 & my 2014 frontier, is the
tcm module on mine, is up in the trans fluid & yours is outside

Google the question & see what turns up

Lots on the internet & You Tube Video,I bet the answer
is in many places on how to solve that

I had problems with my 1999 nissan frontier overdrive. It runs great but wont go into overdrive. Took it to auto shop they kept it for 4 days. Replaced Neatrul Safety switch and 300.00 later it still


The Neutral Safety Sw has nothing to do with the
transmission- as far as how it shifts

If the trans is original (14 years old) time to pull it
& rebuild

I think you answered your own question
You authorized the work,paid for it & could
have asked any question you liked ,when you
took delivery of it.

Did you not road test with shop folks, before paying
to see if the issue was resolved ?

The service enginelight soon came on my overdrive in th1998 frontiere nissan doesnt work a quik scan indicated it was making the light go on thanks every one for helping i


I think I missed something in your story.
The overdrive button on the shifter is used to turn the overdrive off. Otherwise you leave it on all the time. If the switch is in the off position the "o/d off" warning light should be on.
What was the trouble code in the computer that caused the check engine light to be on ?

My nissan frontier blows the automatic transmission fuse when attempting to start and it will not go into overdrive


Replace the transmission range switch for starters, if that doesn't correct the problem you have have a shorted shift solenoid on the valve body inside the transmission.

How do i tell if my transmission is a automatic 4 or 5 or 6 speed? on a 2006 frontier se 4 x 4 engine code: re5ro5a


If it's an automatic, You see the Following: P R N D 2 1 etc. Some may show: P R N D 3 2 1 or .... 3 2 L ... D 2 L etc.

To really determine whether it's a 4,5 or 6, take into consideration if it has Overdrive.

Count however many gears are on the column, as listed above, plus overdrive. this will give you your answer.

Ex: With Overdrive: P R N D 3 2 would be a 3 speed ( 2 3 D) with overdrive.
