If car shakes violently when brakes are pressed, this is probably the rotors.

If car will not shift gears, you better get your wallet out, because it is probably your transmission. An engine diagnosis will not pick this up.

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear

1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

Automatic battery discharged in Nissan Altima 2005

there is not a separate battery for the transmission, if your cars battery goes dead or is disconnected you can manually unlock the shifter.
if by chance it is stuck and the battery is good you could have a bad brake switch or a bad relay.

My car stops or shakes violently when I come to a complete stop after going 15 miles or more at a speed of 75 or greater. What can possibly be the problem?

If it dies like a manual transmission car when you don't disengage the clutch, it could be a faulty torque converter.

2005 nissan altima shakes when i get on my brakes

if it does this especially when going down hills your brake rotors are warped and need to be resurfaced or replaced. Is it your whole car shaking or just the steering wheel? Is the brake pedal pulsating as you push it down harder? all points to the parts stores will resurface them for you if they can.

My nissan altima will not shifting gears. can't get it out of park.

have you checked your shift lock? if pressed it will release, but if you have a transmission issues the first thing you should check is your transmission fluid, if low replace with dealer fluids only, fill in the right amount the dealer calls for. and if your car is not shifting still then you need a transmission specialist to check it.

Hi! i have a 2002 nissan altima(3.5 with automatic transmission). i just got the same codes today. i had 2 different nissan technicians check my car. and they told me it's the revolution speed sensor. After 30 min. of use my car revs high until 8,000 rpm and stays on the same gear for a full 5 seconds or more, then changes to the next gear harshly!! sometimes it just won't change gears and i have to stop in the middle of a highway or avenue. lol!!! when i brake to a complete stop, the transmission slips. does this happen to you? good luck, bro!

1994 Nissan Altima shifter will not shift out of park

The shift interlock can be malfunction.

Have someone check the brake light as you press on the brake.

If the brake light DOES NOT come on then you can start

checking for fuse

test the brake switch.connector

and brake switch.

When the safety circuit does not see the brake being apply then it shifter will remain lock.

Transmission slipage

I had the same problem and took it in the dealer. The teeth from the gear broke off. They had to replace the whole trans. at their expense.
