Whenever you hear noises or feel vibrations from the vehicle that are not common, you should not ignore them. It is now a safety issue and could put Nissan in legal difficulty when someone is hurt or killed due to the inability to shift out of park. I do think patience is the key no panicing. I love the car but at this rate it will turn out to be a white elephant sooner or latter. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer and was told that the transmission was slipping and coolant was leaking from the radiator into the transmission. I will give them a call regarding the shift interlock and see what they say. You engage reverse gear through a separate, small idler gear.
A transmission rebuild for your includes removing the transmission from the vehicle and completely unassembling the unit. The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Xterra. The approximate failure mileage was 95,000. My dealer just crimped a new retainer on in three minutes. You released the clutch and revved the engine to get it to the right rpm value for the next gear so the collar and the next gear spun at the same rate to allow the dog teeth to engage the gear.
While driving approximately 20 mph, the transmission failed to shift properly with extreme hesitation. This morning , I pulled over to answer a phone call and the Brake Shift got stuck in P. Also the Cadillac converter needs replacing and experiencing the same fuel gauge problem. It takes the most transmission pressure to engage reverse, third, and fourth gear in an auto tranny. When they were done looking at it, they told me that this was different from the last time and I would need to pay to have this repaired. Just hoping once this issue is fixed I don't have anything else major for a while. I wish I could live closer to the ware house and pick them up myself but the shipping is super fast either way! Now the problem is gone, but the solenoid engages every time I press the brake pedal.
I also understand there has been a class action lawsuit by some Nissan Maxima owners since 2011. I'm confident this is a larger issue. I should also explain that since about 6 months after delivery, I started to have the problem with the shifter, and when I took it to the dealer for the maintenance, they were able to reproduce the problem, but they didn't fix it because they said it would probably go away on its own. If the car had broke down I would have been stranded on the side of the highway. For more information go to. Thanks for letting me rant, this thread has been a great source of info. The consumer stated after some researching the failure was found to be in the shift solenoid.
Also, the transmission failed to shift correctly. I wasn't sure if I blew a tire or hit something and I instinctively braked hard and drove onto the shoulder of the road. I wish my dealer was as cooperative. I am tempted to just buy the whole assembly and be done with it. I'd say start with the shift linkage. The vehicle was driven home.
The dealership fixed it for me under warranty without an issue and I was on my way. This pressing the brake to disengauge the park safety switch is vaccum operated. Depending which gear you're shifting to, a different fork does the job. The Variable Valve Timing Solenoid is a key part in this system. Modern cars use synchronizers in order to avoid the need for double-clutching.
I have the exact problem that everyone else seems to have. Any help will be appreciated as I need to be sure before I start spending havily on changing transmission I have the same problem 2005 xterra 4x2 giving pretty much all the code you posted but i did and tried everything possible to fix it myself with a little success but still Engine Light comes on with the last code P1757 front breake soleniod i did change the front passenger sensor but now the light came on again i believe the driver side need to replace as well. Thanks if this was the security plus policy sold by dealer your golden. Problems with your transmission gears can be easily fixed when discovered early on, while severe transmission problems may take longer and cost more. While my family and I were not hurt, it was a close call and could have easily been worse at the speed I was going and the effect the failure has on the vehicle. Most orders are shipped the same day.
They could be a signal that something is wrong. The contact stated that while driving approximately 45 mph, the transmission began to shake excessively. The brake light switch on the brake pedal closes a circuit that energizes a solenoid under the shifter. Contacted the dealer and they told me that Nissan had put out a service bulletin about this, and that it was the same as a recall, just that they didn't have to contact everybody because not all vehicles were affected. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. I learned later there is a defect in the transmission of this model caused by radiator fluid leaking into the transmission which corrodes the components.
