I suggest you change netural safty switch and wiring harness and get them from the dealer. Will cost you about $250.00. We just did one and the harness was shorting out.

SOURCE: Car dies while driving

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: wont shift from park to drive its stuck

Since those incidents of runaway cars, they installed an interlock to prevent you from shifting out of park unless you have the brake firmly pressed down.
While checking and fixing a bad brake light switch is a good idea, the interlock was not, so I would just remove it.
It is unreliable, as the solenoid and connections fail commonly, and it is not worth the risk of not being able to drive. That is far more dangerous then the silly thing the interlock was intended to prevent.

SOURCE: 2003 CTS Automatic when i change gears from drive to park or park to drive i hear a clanking noise when i change the gears. If someone is standing there when you pull up and you put the car in park..

I had the same noise on my wife`s 03 cts. It was the the rubber bushing on the shifting arm from the shift lever to the trans. The arm was 250.00 plus I installed myself. Very easy to get to. Bad design should not have went bad.

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park


Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

Elantra won't start and moves when it's in park


I'm going to say something happened to the cable between the shifter and the transmission. There is a switch on the transmission that prevents you from starting the engine in anything other than park or neutral. The transmission is probably in reverse or drive which would allow it to roll.
Someone would need to check the lever on the trans where the shift cable is attached.

You may have a faulty Break-light switch. If the switch is bad, then it will behave as if you have no breaks afa the shift-lever is concerned.

Your tranny rods are wrong. I normally leave things loose put the shifter in park, put the tranny in park and then adjust all parts and snug down. The next time you find that problem block the front wheels and jack the rear up to take the pressure off the right tire and it should come right out of park, this is the best reason to set the "E" brake.

Will not start and noticed that when you attempt to start, both the park like is on and D4(drive),D4 light goes off and still will not start.


if the D4 is drive like as in P R N (D) D 1 then the car thinks you are in gear the netrual safty switch is not working try shifting the shifter the car will only start in park or nutral if you get it to light up the P or N be carefull KEEP YOUR FOOT ON THE BREAK when you try to start the car cause the car maybe still in gear if it is malfuntioning
