Transmission stuck in 5th gear???

This is most likely one of your cam shaft sensors. The reason your transmission goes to 5th gear and stays there is because the car automatically goes into "safe mode". This prevents you from running the car on high RPM's which decreases the chance of causing more damage to the engine.
Depending on the code you get from the check engine light, it will be one of the cam-shaft sensors or the crank shaft sensor. A code reader will answer that question.
Often the sensor just fails or oil gets into the connectors which prevents proper reading. This sometimes goes away temporarily when engine is hot but problem will return.
To replace the cam shaft sensors you are looking at approximately 30 min of work. Its a tight fit but not a difficult job.
Cam shaft sensors are about $80. Not sure how much crank haft sensor is.
Hope this helps, and good luck.

No start Had Codes p0340 & p0345 both are cmp

The crankshaft position sensor works in tandem with the camshaft ones, and they sometimes fail together. I've seen it written that the crankshaft one should be changed WITH the cam ones. They're kinda expensive, but the no spark/injection thing suggests that may be your issue. <!-- from fixya rte -->

How can I locate TDC after timing cover removed?

Locate cylinder number 1 after searching for year make model firing order Remove spark plugs. Then turn the engine over. Look for the valves on cylinder 1 to be both closed. In the old days, we would hold a long pencil in the plug hole of number 1 and watch it rise and then fall. At the top of the rise is TDC, which should correspond to the marks. The proper way is to have a micrometer that fits into the spark plug threads but the marks will be close enough.

Car radio only works when its hot

Make sure the power cables are properly connected to the head unit. Especially make sure the negative lead is properly connected to the frame of your car. Another thing to check is the remote wire, make sure that's connected properly to your head unit.

Hazard lights won't turn off

The only advice I will offer on this subject is: Get an auto electrician to look at it, if you do not understand electrics you can soon cause a fire or worse.It might be a relay faulty or the hazard switch could be stuck , press it a few times to see, if you have no luck the get the garage to look at it. Good luck

Tail lights on 2004 nissan maxima out.

hey i just fixed mine with the same exact problem, look, all you have to do is open your 3rd fuse box which is next to your washing fluid on the passenger´s side under the hood, for that you need to remove the cover wich is pretty easy (5 staples all you need is a thin flat screw driver to lift the center of the staple and then the whole staple) then you take off the cover and then you open the fuse cover, you are looking for the TAILLIGHT fuse wich is the first on the upper row from right to left if you are standing on the passenger side looking towards the drivers side (you can also look for that fuse in the fuse box cover diagram) remembre is a 15A fuse, replace it, jaja and thats how you save some dollars. saludos desde guadalajara mexico.

Could be battery or more likely it needs a new starter. The starter has nothing to do with care safety. Buy a new starter not rebuilt or junkyard started. Labor for new starter or maybe starter is the same. You might get lucky and rebuilt starter lasts but it doesn't the labor is paid again.
