Question about 2006 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

When it is cold weather my 2006 nissan maxima will sometimes not come out of park. If I press the brake as hard as I can it will sometimes work other times I have to wait until the car is warm before it will shift. Is there a sensor maybe that has gone out or is this a safety. I have no other problems with my transmission.

    I would definitely do a transmission fluid flush and oil change to begin with. And if it does not get better, then the solenoid is probably gone bad on the car, you can change the solenoid pack or buy a used transmission Aftermarket parts

I think I would look into the switch associated with the brake pedal. Just guessing.

SOURCE: transmission problem for nissan maxima 04

I don't know if this is the way to fix this problem, but i found this site in the internet with this information, i hope it can help:
There seem to be some common issues among Nissan Maxima owners who have the 2000-2004 models. These tend to range from intermittent rough idle to reported transmission problems, to a drastic decrease in performance. We are looking in to the real cause of the problems, and offering our advice on what to do, and what NOT to do.
We looked into how to troubleshoot the intermittent rough idle problem in the latest article. It can be attributed to the ignition coils, which have proven to go bad in the first few years of ownership. The next issue we are going after is the supposed transmission problems I have been hearing about. This problem has been described as a hesitation in the shifting from 1st to 2nd, or 2nd to 3rd under half to full throttle. It also causes hard shifting, and the appearance of a "rev limiter" around 4000 rpms. The TSB (technical service bulletin) out for this says that the solenoid control assembly in the transmission is to blame. This assembly is responsible for the correct shift times for the transmission. Sounds like the right answer, right?
Maybe. These control assemblies can go bad, but it is only due to the build up of debris in the transmission system. This debris comes from clutch material and burned transmission fluid. With that much clutch material worn down, you would most likely have some slipping in the transmission occurring. If it is indeed slipping, then I would look at a transmission rebuild or replacement. Simply replacing the control assembly would just delay the inevitable, and cost you 500-750 dollars.
The issue I have described is NOT the transmission. I repeat. NOT the transmission. In my example, I have not described any slipping of the transmission. In a lot of cases, this "transmission" symptom is accompanied by a pinging engine and low performance. This is most likely a fuel related problem. The ping is from a lean fuel mixture (not enough gas). The poor performance could be from the same cause. If the knock sensor or the trans solenoids were bad, you would eventually get an engine trouble code from the ECU/TCU. The first place to check is the fuel filter in the gas tank. There is not an external filter on these cars, and that filter in the tank is SELDOM changed. The new filter should fix the engine ping, the performance issues, and the "transmission" type symptoms. The "rev limiter" feel is from the engine not having enough fuel to continue raising the rpms. The hard shift is from the transmission anticipating the faster shift needed at higher rpms, but the engine is not performing correctly, so the acceleration is not there to complete the smooth shift. All these systems work intricately together. Lower the fuel pressure available to the injectors, and all of the above symptoms can occur.
Be sure to have the codes checked. In a lot of cases I have seen, these issues come and go with no check engine light. That is a good sign it could be the fuel filter. You may also have a dirty throttle body, which I recommend cleaning when you replace the filter.
Good luck, and stay TUNED!

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.

2006 Nissan Sentra. Belts squeaks and stop seeking when you step on brakes.


If I understand this, your fan and other belts driving components in the engine bay stop squeaking when stepping on the brake? Your belts may need some adjustment to tighten. But it may be a vacuum hose leaking around the power brake chamber, or it is leaking, and sounds like the squeeking you describe. I would temporarily confirm the belt squeak by using a "Belt dressing spray" from your auto parts store, to see if it really is the belt or a possible vacuum leak. My belts squeak sometimes after the first start of the day in cold weather since the alternator is working very hard to recharge the battery after the start. It will be quieter when the engine is slowed down as in your braking scenario.

The
shifter needs to be inspected. Its quite possible that The
shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.








There
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this shifting problem occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.




Also
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These
are direct links with appropriate solutions to
the specific problems of gear shift

96 Nissan Maxima having problems with automatic gear shift lever. Can't get it out of park. When I can shift into drive/reverse car operates normally. Is there a sensor or link that coould be blown?


sometimes stuff falls down into the cracks where the lever is, so try that. but there is, inside of the console that the lever is on, a cable that wraps around a little plastic roller, and it has gears on it that make it click into Park, or Reverse, or 1,2, OD, whatever. sometimes if those get worn out, the little plastic part will get stuck into park, because it is supposed to lock into park, and you have safety switches in there too so that you cant shift from park without pressing on the brake. so check and see if it is the cable, the check the plastic part, i think it should be green.

2006 Maxima Hard Start When Hot


Is there a check engine light? Even if not, your oxygen flow sensor may be sometimes malfunctioning. Use an OBD-II diagnostic tool to see if you have any readings or error codes. You can borrow one from a friend or some auto parts shops will run that through for you - just give some a call and ask.
