I have a 2014 Nissan Altima that won't go or reverse could that be the transmission module???

car is only two year old

wont select reverse of revs out in reverse?

module says std automatic and not a CVT transmission
when a module goes into fail safe you always have reverse and third

check oil level first
wont select
check shift cables or linkages adjustment shift stick alignment

revs out
more likely a solenoid or mechanical failure
if there is a bang as you shift into reverse its the oil pump

if none of the above are the cause
could be the module ......not sure on that

you need to check your fluids there. You could have run it with out transmission oil and cooked your clitch pack in your transmission. Good luck. You should check all your flids, that means oil too.

in every transmission there is a reverse light switch, located on the tranny itself. it looks like an oil pressure switch, sorta threaded plug with a wide outside end with terminals for the wires. you may havta replace that.
