By the sounds of it that could be the solenoid that operates the overdrive that has malfunctioned or there's a bad earth or a broken fuse - its electrical though that's for sure -- you may need to see a mechanic for that one unless your good at diy :)
Hope you get it going :)

here is a trick that I use. take a high wattage 12 v lamp(headlap both filaments)= 8a (( load now link it onto a blown fuse(lamp is now in series . now with ignition on lamp will glow full(dead short) pull off,dissconnect stuff that is connected to that circuit when lamp dims you have the culprit. better still first find what is all connected and re connect one at a time and when there is a short the lamp will go bright.stil discuss this with others. a word of caution do not use a lamp as a test lamp due to the electronics on most cars(as above is different use

Spark plugs in your car are good for 100,000 miles. try changing fuel filter and add a can of B&G 44K fuel additive. This stuff is the best on the market and only available at dealerships. It conditions fuel pump and injectors, also absorbs water in fuel (methanol). Try this first, your car is too new for any other problems. this should help drivability and fuel mileage. If Nissan does not have B&G, I know Toyota does. Also stay with 91 octane fuel. Check oil and coolant often. do not risk overheating in traffic, watch your gauges......

Ck all the fuses, u cant go wrong that way.

Nissan Sentra... | Answered on Feb 17, 2017

check what fuse is blowing
I suspect that it is a fuse for the fan relay that switches on the radiator fan
if that is the case , replace that relay
the reasoning is this
there is a fuse for the coolant temp sensor
that sensor reads the coolant temp and reports to the ECM so that the air/fuel mixture can be adjusted correctly
there is a second fuse for the control for the fan relay
when the coolant temp reaches a set temp , the ECM through that second fuse energizes the fan relay which starts the fan to cool the radiator
from your description , the short is in that system and so I suspect the relay is faulty
take it to an accredited auto electrical specialist for a diagnosis of the fault
