Nissan Xterra 2005 p1757

Nissan XTerra 2005 transmission RE5R05A.
Trouble code is p1757 When I go from park to drive it goes out of gear and puts my car in limp mode. I took it to the dealer and they told me that I have to replace a transmission another place told that it could be brake solenoid or oil filter. In third place they told me it could be the TCM problems. Your opinion?

This one is going to need a transmission specialist and some diagnostic time. If you have a reputable independent shop in your area, I’d suggest you take it there.

I seriously doubt that you need a new tranny. But a generalist is unlikely to be able to help you with this. And the dealer will simply want to replace the entire tranny. AAMCO takes the same approach.

My opinion is the same as the same mountainbike. Get a second opinion from a transmission specialist. Stay away from chain shops.

What the OP describes is a classic symptom of a problem with a Nissan front brake solenoid valve.
Because that valve is controlled by the Transmission Control Module, the effects of failure of that valve include a problem getting into gear, and/or shifting problems.

I agree that a competent shop is called for here, but the likelihood of needing a new transmission is…slim…and, more than likely, simply installing a new brake solenoid valve will resolve the problem.

Oil filter?
I suggest that you avoid the shop that attributed the problem to your oil filter.

Just curious @VDCdriver how come the brakes are linked to the transmission? Is this for better traction, to prevent one wheel from spinning and the other not getting power?

I have to confess that I don’t know why Nissan has set up their system this way, but the stated symptoms are “classic” for a bad front brake solenoid valve.

I found this, might prove helpful to the OP. There’s a TSB on this. See link.

“Front brake solenoid valve is controlled by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the PNP switch, vehicle speed sensor and accelerator pedal position sensor (throttle position sensor). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position.”

Thank you guys! I appreciate for your tips. I think I will be looking for a special reputable repair service in my area. (Van Nuys CA)
