I will attempt to be as descriptive as possible. So, while my wife and I are driving, we are searching for somewhere to pickup a quick bite to eat. We pull into a the parking lot with a car full of groceries, thinking that, this will not take that long. We stop, put the car into Park and realize that the Eatery,(WG Grinders) has closed, or so we thought. Thinking that this is not a problem, we do a phone search for something else. As I attempt to put the car in Reverse, it will not move. I cannot put the car in reverse. Now 5 minutes prior to this I noticed that the blinkers were acting as if there was a bulb out(Fast Blinking). While parked, I attempted to get out of the driver side door, I push the PD, no movement of the door lock. I soon realized that we have not power inside the vehicle, No Power windows, no power sunroof, no interior accessories, other than the radio and headlights. Yes the engine is still running, and the AC is still on. I turned the car off, and back on again, No problem. Vehicle starts with no problem. We called AAA to tow the vehicle to Nissan. The tow arrived and advised us that he can by-pass the Brake-to-Shift interlock with the ignition key. The Tow driver was successful, and we were able to drive the vehicle home to unload the groceries, and then proceed to the dealership to drop the vehicle off. Question:
What may have caused this? This is a 2017 Nissan Maxima Platinum with 8800 miles.
We had no previous issues with this car. Yes I could access the Trunk either, I had to crawl through and pull the emergency trunk release.
What do I think it is? I believe the a fuse or maybe a ECU is to blame for the catastrophic failure. There is no smell of burning wires or anything of the sort.
I cant wait to see what the dealership has to say!!
