I HAVE A 2.5S AUTOMATIC, OFTEN WHEN I HIT THE BRAKE I HEAR A CLICKING NOISE COMING FROM THE AREA OF THE SHIFTER. ANYBODY ELSE EXPERIENCE THIS?

What you are hearing is the safety lock on the shifter. You must depress the brake to put the car in gear. I notice when I am stopped at a light and press the brake you still hear it click. Now why it does that I have no idea.

thats odd I never noticed a clicking noise.... Im sure if you listened to music at a 22-25 volume level you wouldn't notice it either. :D

Make sure the keyless entry on your key chain is not tapping the dashboard. My wife heard a low "thudding" type noise when she would slow and we noticed the keys hitting the dash. Sounds silly, but it wasn't obvious at first.

no it is not something banging like a key. it occurs when stopped- i can lift up on the brake and when i tap the break it occurs again. it is definitely coming from the shift area

i don't think it's your shift-lock unlocking, because i think it only does that when you're car's in park.

i have no clue as to where your noise is coming from. i hate those unnecessary noises as well... if i were you, i'd take the whole center console apart, drive like that and see where it's coming from.

Mine clicks whenever I press and release the break when at a stop. It also clicks when I am slowing to a stop. I can feel it because most times my hand is on the shift knob.

clicking noise...

The noise you hear is the shift interlock solenoid. Mine does the same thing. I asked Nissan about it and they are supposed to be coming out with a fix. There is actually nothing wrong with your car....but I know the noise is somewhat annoying.

You'll hear the clicking sound whenever you're at a stop, etiher in park or in gear...when engaging or releasing the brake.

Other than the annoyance, there is really nothing wrong with the car...
