That is the shift interlock solenoid. It clicks when you hit the brake pedal, and should do it all the time. They are mounted under the shifter and are notoriously loud....Nissan has a fix for it (just a little rubber bumper) Go to, sign up and go look at the TSBs for your car. You will find it there.

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.
