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.

SOURCE: How do I fix my Nissan Maxima 1991's shift gear?

Do you hear a click near shifter when ignition is on and you step on brake? if not you have a Shifter Interlock problem. you ennd to check fuses for a possible blown fuse. If it is not a fuse it could be the Switch or solonoid. If you hear the click and can not shift, can you press on shifter lock button? if not Shifter Lock is malfunctioning. It must be taken apart to diagnose what it is exactly. If you CAN push Button then it could be the shift cable itself is frozen, and needs replaceing

SOURCE: I have a 96 nissan maxima it won't go into park

Most likley problem is your brake light switch. go underneath the dash to the brake pedal and depending on wether you have cruise control or not ther will be one or two sensors there. the black sensor should be the brake light switch. disconnect and jump the connector with a paper clip and see if the brake lights comeon and the shifter will move.

Your Maxima more than likely has an electrical shifter lock. It unlocks when you step on the brake pedal. The switch for this may be worn out, or needs adjustment.

Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector. Let me know what you find!

My gear shift is stuck in park

the 1st thing to check is the brake lights, if they are not working due to a defective brake light switch the system locks the gearshift in park, if the brake lights are working you will need to check for a stuck release cable or release cable solenoid actuator problem.

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.
