SOURCE: Shift lever
It sounds like you may have a faulty shift interlock solenoid. It is under the center console. You can expose it and see if it is getting voltage when the vehicle is on and you foot is on the brake. If it is, replace the solenoid. If it isn't, you may have a faulty relay.

sounds like you have a bad neutral safety switch. it's usually attached to your brake pedal. i'm not sure on a newer maxima but check underneath. here's what it looks like http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/parts/partsProduct.jsp?itemIdentifier=124168_0_0_&skuDescription=Duralast+/+Neutral+Safety+Switch&brandName=Duralast&displayName=Neutral+Safety+Switch&categoryNValue=15799999&sortType=&store=966&isSearchByPartNumber=false&fromWhere=&fromString=search&counter=0&itemId=218-0&navValue=15700218&filterByKeyWord=neutral+safety+switch&productId=124168&searchText=neutral+safety+switch&categoryDisplayName=Electrical+%26+Lighting&parentId=57-0

CHECK FUSE TO BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH - NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH AND BRAKE TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID.IF BRAKE LIGHTS WORKS.YOUR PROBLEM COULD BE THE BRAKE TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID OR BAD NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH.MAKE SURE NEUTRAL SWITCH FUSE IS GOOD.
