Question about Nissan Altima

1 Answer

My 2005 Nissan Altima won't start in a normal manner. It's auto trans, 175K km (109K miles) When I turn the key it turns over but does not start. When the key is in the ignition and it's in "Park", I hear a click sound coming from the gear shifter when I wiggle the gear shifter side to side. I can sometimes get it to start when I wiggle the gear shifter and hear the click click sound and turn the key at the same time. I have the most success starting it if I turn the key and push the gear shifter to the upper right (while still in park) at exactly the same time.

So you answered your own question
Check out the neutral safety sw (wiggle shifter, starts) or trans selector sw,whichever applies

You have gotten the codes & now know you have
transmission issues,so you should stop using any

You can ruin a trans in less than ten miles, if you use it
not knowing the problem

My 2005 nissan altima won't change from park when crunk up. what could be the problem?

Usually a sign of a faulty brake light switch or lock solenoid on the shifter. You may be able to get the shifter out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not "on".
There may be a button you can push next to the shifter to unlock in an emergency. Check your owners manual.

2005 Altima won't start, hear clicking sound coming from fuse box,key stuck in ingintion,won;t turn over,tried to jump start.

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

There is a known issue with the crank/cam sensors. They are on there third update from Nissan. The normal symptom is an extended crank and occasional rough running. Knowing what code is turning on the check engine light will seal the deal on whether or not its the cam/crank sensors.

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.
