Hi there!
You need to check fuse #8 in the fuse box inside the car.

It seems as if the fuse diagram supplied does not match what is going on on the fuse box. I have 13 slots on the right and 12 on the left, the opposite of your diagram. Also the 1st 2 fuses on the top of my box are factory installed 15A fuses. Are you sure this is the right diagram for a 2006 Nissan Altima S?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
Odd, this is out of the factory service manual.
This is out of the 07 manual, does it match?

Just to make sure... This is the fuse box in the driver's side pannel?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it's the only one inside the car so you are on the right panel.Don't know why it's not matching the diagram.

Here is a picture I just took of my fuse box. The 10a fuse and the upside-down 15a fuse are the top part. Under the wire above the top fuses shown, it is hiding tw0 15a fuses.

 

Let me know what you think.

 

Thanks, Josh

Don't see the pic! Sorry!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Here it is again. My mistake... thgraphicere are no hidden fuses. this shows all of them. I hope this goes through.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
I circled the one needs checking or swapping with another 10 amp

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks! I replaced it but all the lights are still out. I guess I'll have to take it to the shop. Bummer!
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
Here is a tip. If the car still shifts out of park, replace the bulbs. This would mean the switch is still working ok.
You might not have realized the bulbs were out until they all blew. Worth a shot at least.
