Drive in D4, the rest of the gears are just lower ratio gears that give you more power but less speed. if she is only doing regular driving nothing special I can not think of a reason to use any of the other gears. and yes severe engine damage can result from trying to go to fast in any of the lower gears.

This jag will start in any gear including reverse when the engine starts the Bendix does not go in starter continues to whine until taken out of gear rather put into gear

this statement is hard to understand as it is not logical
the engine will start in any gear--ok --- problem in the neutral/park switch
when the engine starts the bendix does not go in starter but continues to whine --exactly what do you mean --does the starter motor stay engaged in the ring gear after the engine starts or does it come out of engagement with the ring gear but continue to spin
as there is no connection between the gear selection and the starter motor can you explain the last part of tour statement

Can the shift saftey mechanism be disabled on my 1990 nissan sentra so it stops getting stuck in park?The brake lights work

Its not possible, and if any modification required to make these happen,then its techs job.

For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----



These will help.
