I have a problem with my 2011 Altima 2.5 SL . I was driving on a highway when suddenly the car stopped accelerating and the traction control light started to flash for a while. I stopped the car to cool down and checked the transmission fluid. The fluid level seems normal and clean. No burn smell at all. Now the car turns on normally, no lights at all but the gas pedal does not respond at all and the car does not drive niether on D nor R and rpm does not go over 1000.
Could anyone help me figure what’s wrong plz

Your CVT is the problem, and you need a replacement CVT.

You wrote this two days ago, what made the codes disappear?

"I have a problem with my 2011 Altima. The car shifts into gear (the shifter is displayed correctly) and I can hear that the gear shifts ok, but the car does not drive at all, neither on D nor R. I got the codes P0715 P1723 and P0868. Can anyone help me plz"

All of the codes are CVT related.

They did not disappear. The transmission seems fine. I asked a few automotive specialists and all agreed that the issue and the codes pattern indicate an electrical issue. Unfortunate none of them work on CVTs. So I am trying to gather different thoughts.

"The transmission seems fine" is the funniest thing I have read today, or this week for that matter. You can't drive your car, three codes, all indicating CVT issues, but since you asked a few automotive specialists, none of whom work on CVT transmissions.....you are hoping beyond hope that some freak electrical issue is the cause of your problems, and refuse to admit that your CVT is defective, and needs to be replaced. You will have a hard time finding a reputable shop or mechanic that is willing to work on CVT's. Replace them, yes, repair them, no.

Looks like Uber and Lyft will be in your future.
