on the japanese cars u need to press the brake pedal to release the lock on the auto transmission.this works via the brake light switch.if u have no brake lights the switch is probably not working.replace this and see how things go.

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

2004 nissan frontier intermittent starting problem with shift lock


Shift lock is just a safety feature, so you have your foot on the brake, when you put it in gear. It has nothing to do with starting the car. Intermittent starting problems can be a few different things. Ignition switch, park/neutral safety switch, wiring, and corrosion. If it clicks when trying to start, it cold be loose/corroded battery cables or a bad battery.

Automatic shift stuck nissan frontier


Shift cable broken or binding.
Have a trusted person try to shift it while you look at the linkage on the side of the transmission.
make sure engine is off, key on, parking brake set and all wheels are blocked in front and back (so you don't get run over)
Look for the small movement at the shifter linkage while the helper is trying to shift.
Many times, it's a small clip or mounting (cable to shift linkage) that has broken, gone missing, or twisted up.
Only do this on a flat surface with vehicle blocked in place.
Transmission shop is your next best bet if you do not feel comfortable. 12_24_2012_6_52_44_pm.jpg

2000 Nissan Frontier Gear Shift Stuck in Park?


Usually a problem with the brake switch or the electric solenoid that locks the shifter into park. That circuit would need to be tested.

GEAR STUCK ON PARK AND WON'T MOVE


I think your brake shift interlock solenoid is not releasing the Park position when you apply the brake.

Check for a blown fuse first. see owner manual for location of fuse.

Also, check owner manual for how to manually bypass the interlock.

When you step on the brake pedal, it activates a solenoid that unlocks the shift linkage cable so it will move. It is a safety feature to ensure you have you foot on the brake and not the gas, as you shift out of park.

please rate highly if this helps.
