2004 Nissan Sentra Q&A
2004 Nissan Sentra Question: Shift stuck in park
There is usually a small little over ride plunger near the shift lever that is that can be pushed down to over ride the lock out for the shift lever. It may have a little cover that needs to be removed and stick a small screw driver in the exposed hole as you pull the lever out of park. Turn the ignition key on and press the brake. Do you hear a clicking sound each time you press the brake pedal? Check that your brake lights work, if not check the fuses and replace the brake light fuse if blown. The shifter needs an input from the brake light switch to come out of park. If none of this works I will check information tonight specific to your car as I have not got access to that information right now. - patrick mannion

I used to have this problem with my 1998 Mustang. I took it to Pep Boys and they said it was a fault in the safety feature that doesn't let you take it out of park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Apparently my car didnt think i had my foot on the brake even though I did. I gave them permission to remove the safety feature entirely and this fixed the problem. - AlleyCast
same thing happened to my 2006 corolla. found out it was a blown fuse. things to consider: -sensor on brake pedal -sensor on key ignition switch -fuses to those sensors. - Visitor
Most likely it is the brake sensor under your pedal no hard to replace at all or it could be a wire that broke off the sensor so the car thinks that the brakes are not pressed down so it will not let your car go to park how do you know if this is what the problem is have someone hold down your brake pedal and see if your tail lights work - Visitor
