This is a known condition. And, is under warranty.
Take your vehicle to a Toyota dealership. Ask them to replace your ECU per TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) TC015-07. The new ECU has redesigned logic that rectifys your condition.

Up to 99 or 2000 model maxima's arent OBD II. There is a OBD I connector located behind the fuse box cover inside the car. It is a grey connector.

The only way those type of scanners will give you a code is if it is a hard code. When a check engine light is on, but doen's flash it is usually referring to an emission problem. A flashing light refers to misfire. Spark plugs, wire, etc. A snap on scanner or Genesis Scanner is able to look at perimeters inside the system which is a better approach when you don't have a hard code. Sometimes after the code is on long enough it will become a hard code and the type of scanner that you have will pull it. The thing that often happens is the EGR isn't circulating properly and you get an intermediate light and don't get a hard code for a while which leaves you in the dark. You might take your vehicle to a local service shop which uses a better scanner and they can look at what is going on and solve that problem.

hi, those sound like throttle actuator codes. the throttle body on your vehicle should be an electronically controlled unit without wires to control actual acceration an deceleration. now, there is also an electronic switch called a potentiometer on the gas pedal that transmits signal to the throttle body to tell it what to do. most of the time, the throttle body is what goes bad here. you should also check the wiring to the unit for bad connection by wiggling the wire connector and seeing if the reduced engine power light comes on. if this happens, you will likely have to replace the wiring pigtail and the throttle body. but, in some cases, the gas pedal switch goes bad, and likely what is not allowing the transmission to shift out of park, the pcm may lock out the solenoid controlling the shifter. but, don't just run with that answer, it maybe completely wrong. i have seen more throttle bodies and wiring harnesses go bad than gas pedal switches in those vehicles. but you might want to have a shop diagnose further, it may even be two unrelated problems, or in the powertrain computer itself.

there is a lot of questions here so i will start with the codes P0028 & P0026 both are verable valve timing codes first we should talk about how this system works, the engine is equiped with veriable valve lift units that when oil is pushed into the units they push on the camshaft, basicaly they roll the shafts in there saddles witch changes the lift and duration of the camshaft this is done to maxamise the performance of the engine, basickly alowes the engine to be tuned down at low RPM and load but when there is a demand for power the cames are advanced to give the engine more power. when we see these codes the mose common problem is the engine has not been serviced reguarly and their is gunk built up in the oil passages to the veriable valve units, most of the time changing the oil and adding some addative like marvel mistery oil will fix the problem, if not then you may have to replace the veriable valve lift units.
the skip under load might be the verable valve units advanceing one cam and not the other, this would cause a surge and maybe an engine miss fire, but i would change the spark plugs as will as the oil ( it never hurts to replace the plugs ) but make sure to use what the factory used don't chepen it up spend the few extra dollers to get the right plugs.
the check engine light is the verable valve units.
now the flashing cruse and the TCL these are most likely related, and you should be able to get a code from the BCM that will leed you down the right path, but best guess is a speed sensor is not working, all 4 wheel have to be within 1% of each other or the cruse will not work, and the TC wont work and probly the ABS.
its a lot of info but i hope this helps.
