Check to see if your break lights are working if not its the stop light switch located under the steering wheel.


Yeah... my break lights working good. I check also all fuses and continuity current and also is Ok...The only think I find wrong is my dome light is burn, and my mirror lights lamps are good but can;t be come ON...??? I think a relay switch or ignition switch are damage ? I ck manual book and say if Ignition switch need to replace , do it only direct to dealer services because need to be reset or program computer by technician ?? Whoa !!! how I know the right way to fix without cost me a fortune ? I can buy the part and take my time to installer.But my question : IT IS TRUE I NEED RESET OR PROGRAM THE COMPUTER AGAIN ? ONLY BY DEALER OR PROFESSIONAL SHOP ?


Ohh...Also my radio doesn't work ...

Try a Nissan Forum first before you spend any money GL.


Ok, but before go to Forum I make stop today at auto parts and talk with the boys there and he told me and show me through the system network a picture where I can see a little "eye" over the console cover. That little "eye" is a plastic cap, lift up and you can see a tiny shiftier button , introduces a small screwdriver and push down. Immediate the gear thriftier become release, so I can move the gear and put on drive position. Also this gay told me probably need replace the shift Interlock Solenoid. I think that is the main trouble because after release the gear I try move to other position and feel hard difficult to made change and stuck again. That Brake Interlock Solenoid is located under console cover , just on left side.
