Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have trouble moving my gear selector out of park. To park, I put the selector in park, followed by hand brake. To drive off again, it requires a LOT of effort to move the selector backwards.

Its a Nissan Pulsar 2013 model. Automatic. New car warranty runs out about 20th December. I always have my foot on the brake pedal on when trying to move selector backwards. It also makes a clunk when I do get it to shift. With a disabled left arm and wrist it's so stressful and I'm afraid it is causing damage to the car. I took it to the Nissan Service Centre a couple of weeks ago, and they say it is normal and didn't fix it.

see my friend easy fix,the problem you are having is a wire problem that locks or unlocks the shifter from the park potition and also unlocks the key from the ignition switch is just getting stuck inside the ignition switch, so more likely needs lubrication you can do it yourself or have a machanic do it
for you,maybe replace it with a new one( wich i dont think is nesesary) take it out clean it, put new grease and it should be good to go, good luck.This wire is conected to the ignition switch, on the right side and can be pulled out with your hand.

Fuse for brake lights keeps blowing out, shifter won't go into gear


Your vehicle has a safety system that won't let you take it out of park unless you have the brake pedal pressed ! Your brake switch could be shorted inside causing fuse to blow !
Shift Interlock System A brake/shifter interlock mechanism prevents shifting the transmission out of the PARK position unless the brake pedal (2455) is applied. The system consists of the following components:
  • an actuator activated by the key interlock assembly and brake pedal pressed input.
  • necessary wiring.
The system operates as follows:
  • The actuator is energized when the ignition switch is turned to RUN, locking the transmission range selector lever in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is applied and the stoplight switch (13480) is activated, the shift lock actuator is deactivated.
  • The transmission range selector lever can be moved out of the PARK position.
The ignition/shifter interlock cable (3F719) locks the transmission range selector lever in the PARK position when the ignition switch is in the LOCK position. It also requires the selector lever to be in the PARK position to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.

When putting into reverse it has to be in the


This sounds a lot like the bush's in the gear change linkages are either worn out or gone. I have seen this a few times. Ask someone to check to see if the linkage moves when you move it only one place. Do this with the motor off and the hand brake on. Select nutural. Ask a friend to see if the gear selector moves when you select "D" drive. If there is little to no movement, time to start looking at linkage bush's

My shift control cable on 99 pontiac grand prix broke


Hello, and sorry for your fix, but depending wheee the break is at it may involve getting under your vehicle to see where the linkage ties to. It might just be a small job that you remove the shift mechanism and find it under the console area but if the linkage is a long piece it may require you to follow it down to the tranny. Sometimes this might night even evolve the linkage because it's metal and it might just be a plastic part on the shift lever you may want to see the condition on those pesky plastic parts. Plastic gets brittle and does fray so trouble shoot that as well. Hope this helps. GE

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

Automatic transmission shifts gears without input.


Get a selector switch, mounted on the side of the transmission. They gave a lot of trouble.

Can't get my 2000 ford taurus out of park


The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive


As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
