Car stuck in park and brake lights aren't working
 

 
I have a 2005 Nissan Altima, when I start the car, I hit the brakes to try to shift into reverse or drive but it's stuck in park in wont move... sometimes I just have to wait a few minutes then it'll work or sometimes it takes an hour or more to work

I've noticed that the brake lights aren't working when this problem occurs

my friend said it seems like a transmission problem, but I'm not sure if it's something that serious

I'm taking it to Pep Boys tomorrow though... would any of y'all know anything about this?

ummmm first of all pepboys is NOT a service shop, they are know for batteries, tires and minor work.
You have a major transmission problem since the vehicle won't move in reverse nor in drive. Have you tried all the other gears? If only people followed the service intervals you would not have this problem.

no, I guess I didn't make myself clear

the car moves, I can drive it every day... it just gets stuck in park is what I was saying, but once I get it out of park everything is all good until I put it in park again

my one car would do that s**t about shifting out of park when it was winter. It would only happen in the cold weather though and once the car was warmed up it would work fine.

the way i dealt with it was just using my remote start and it would be warmed up and shift out of gear just fine

so could that be done at Pep Boys when I go get my oil change and tires rotated or would I have to go get that done somewhere else

sorry, I don't know much about cars, but I'm trying to learn

same thing happened to me in my lincoln one of the wires goin to my break light switch had broken. basically its wired like that so u always have to press the brake to get out of park but if the switch is not functioning properly it has no way of knowing. i did a quick google search for my car and found it was a fuse i could pull to override the function, should be one for yours too.

I have a 2005 altima, you blew a fuse. if you look on your gear box there is a hole that is covered and if you pop off the cover and stick a flathead down there youll disengage the lock as long as its pressed so you can get the car out of park. but pull your fuses to see whats blown. mine was the map light smh

i agree it sounds like the car doesnt know when the brakes are being pressed, what you can do is get to the shift lock and push it down and try shifting

They checked on it when I went to Pep Boys yesterday to get my oil changed and tires rotated and they said the Brake Light Switch went out, but they didn't have the part in stock, so they ordered one and it wont be in until tomorrow

so the problem will be fixed in the morning
