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.

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

sounds like you have a bad neutral safety switch. it's usually attached to your brake pedal. i'm not sure on a newer maxima but check underneath. here's what it looks like http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/parts/partsProduct.jsp?itemIdentifier=124168_0_0_&skuDescription=Duralast+/+Neutral+Safety+Switch&brandName=Duralast&displayName=Neutral+Safety+Switch&categoryNValue=15799999&sortType=&store=966&isSearchByPartNumber=false&fromWhere=&fromString=search&counter=0&itemId=218-0&navValue=15700218&filterByKeyWord=neutral+safety+switch&productId=124168&searchText=neutral+safety+switch&categoryDisplayName=Electrical+%26+Lighting&parentId=57-0

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!
