All you have to do is change the bulb, that light goes out quicker than others because it encounters alot of vibration and things of that nature in that area - it should be a very simple fix and should only take as much as a screwdriver to get to - worst case scenario is you would have to remove your center console, don't be intimidated as this is pretty straight forward.

I have a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder and the tranny won't go into Park so what is the problem and how do I fix it


Will the selector lever in the cab click into Park, or does the selector lever not reach that position any longer?
If it physically cannot reach the position and lock into it as per usual, then the linkage underneath needs adjustment.
if it reaches and clicks into Park position but the transmission does not lock, then there is a problem with the pawl not tngaging and locking the trans.
Always try to adjust the linkage before delving into the trans in cars something is worn, broken or has slipped put of position.

I was wondering if you can help me out, I have a 1992 Nissan Terrano 3Lt V6 4x4, its just an old farm truck, Well today I was driving it down the paddock and all of a sudden it wont move in any gear,...


If it is an automatic, and absoloutely no movement it sounds like the torque convertor has failed. Either impellor or turbine. If it is a manual the clutch may have gone. If it is a manual, place it in gear and get a friend to rock the car back and forward. See if you notice any movement of the harmonic balancer/belts in the engine bay?

My 1992 Nissan Terrano/Pathfinder wont move in any gear. It will go to the gear but just wont move. Its an automatic


Check that the high / low lever is fully in position, if it has been bumped or popped half way between high and low, then then you will not have any drive.

For 4W Hi either be stopped or moving at a slow rate of speed (<20 MPH) and move your 4WD selector to the 4 Wheel Hi position.

For 4W Lo stop and move the selector from 2W Hi to 4W Hi then push down on the selector and move through N into 4W Lo.

4x4 and VDC problem with my 2005 Pathfinder


to get rid of 4x4.while running, put your truck in N, foot on brake and change the selector out of 4 LOW. you should get indication on your dash, no 4X4 flashimg and back into 2WD. If the VDC light is on, its linked to your ABS so check your brake fluid levels. Good Luck
