1996 nissan maxima stuck in 5th gear

While backing up rather fast, the front tires locked and made grab marks in the asphalt. Car died and when started again would not go into any gear, but was stuck in 5th gear. Was able to drive home and park. A friend mentioned it could have jumped out of the linkage. Any suggestions?

I think that your crank angle sensor failed. Is the check engine light on?? if so, scan it and get code. If the code is P0335, than you need new crank angle sensor. Nissan has been having some problems with those even on other Nissan products. (Altima, Pathfinder and so on) Good luck.

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

SOURCE: Gear Shift gets stuck on Maxima 2001

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.

Start off with a tire rotation. That should solve the problem. If problem presist the next best thing to do is have your wheel bearings checked. In order to check your wheel bearings you need to lift the car from the front (suspending the the front wheels. With both hands grab the tire on both sides and move with back and forth motions. If you find much play then you need to change your bearings. These things will cause movement at high rates of speed
