Are Altimas known for not being able to get the shifter to release from Park? It must be an ongoing problem, since the factory puts in a button called a (surprise!) "shift lock." More exotic stuff you never dreamed about, like, having to carry around a small screwdriver in order to get your car to move. Unbelieveable!

Hello,

Yes, late-model Nissans are known for having problems with their shift interlock systems. Also, I believe the interlock solenoid is not serviceable in most cases, which means the entire shifter assembly has to be replaced.

You can disable it to never act up again, simply a child protection device. I've done it to both my Fords.

It can be a sign the battery is about dead too.
