Question about 2005 Nissan Almera 1.5
Intermittent problem. Car will not start when gear shift is in Park and foot on brake, it just clicks just like when you try to start it when the gear shift is in any other poition other than park. Took connector off gear position switch and there was oil in socket. Should there be oil there? Do i need to replace the switch?

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

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.

You must remove the console yes, and you need to replace the shift lock solenoid.

The gear shift electrical relay or module inside it is not reading the signal to release. You need to have the electronic relay or module repaired or the gear shift assembly replaced.
