Very possibly your transmission control relay is at fault and should be checked and/or replaced. Thank you, Dana

2002 Nissan maxima stuck in 3rd gear, auto tranny . I was driving the other day to realize the light on the dash said I was in 3rd instead of drive, but my gear shifter was in the drive position ....


Most modern day autos are all electronically controlled, Usually if it detects a fault it can go into limp mode which by default is 3rd gear. The fact your speedo is not working which too is most likely sensor driven then that may be a clue to what is wrong. No speed sensor, no speedo and the transmission control unit is not getting the vehicle speed sense either. So it has no way of knowing what gear to be in or any shift points. I'm thinking it's a sensor issue would be my best guess.

Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

My speedometer ceases to work and then it will work the next day and then stops again


Two possibilities, a bad stepper motor that drives the speedometer in the instrument cluster or an intermittent vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Does you odometer still work when the speedo is not working? If so, then the stepper motor in the cluster is bad.
