2004 Nissan Quest, gear stuck in park.


#2

Most cars have a release tab at the base of the gear selector.You need to press it with a screwdriver to unlock.


#3

That is true IF the gear selector is located on the center console.
If this vehicle has a column-mounted gear selector, your suggestion will not work.
Can the OP please clarify the location of his gear selector?


#4

Lucky for him,this car has one.I just checked the photograph of the console.


#5

So, in other words, he should just follow the directions that can be found in his Owner’s Manual.
:wink:


#6

Yes! Obviously the OP does not read his owner’s manual like we do.:wink:


#7

The owners manual probably has instructions for this exact scenario.


#8

The permanent solution requires repairing the mechanism that connects the brake pedal to the shifter.


#9

I would revise your statement to read as… The Owner’s Manual undoubtedly has instructions for this exact scenario. If not, then eternal shame on Nissan!

OK, here I go again. If you want the Owners Manual, try http://www.vadennissanservicecontracts.com/owners-manual/nissan/2004-Nissan-Quest.pdf

Look at page 5-9, page 215 of the pdf file you download, and it will tell you how to unlock the shifter.

Its unlikely the OP will return to post again.
