Customer Question

Hello,
JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: There is no gear indicator and the truck will not start
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Do you happen to have the code?
Customer: I'm guessing that it doesn't realize its in park. No code
JA: I'll pass this info along to the Nissan Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: Recently had the transmission replaced with a used one. Started, drove fine for two months...then starting issues. No crank. Could short the starter but no ignition. Then replaced IPDM, can short the starter and truck will run. But, noticed no gear indicator. Its stuck in 4WD, and will not start on its own. No crank
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Wiggling the wires at the transmission connector
JA: Is there anything else the Nissan Mechanic should be aware of about your Nissan?
Customer: External cooler for the trans, so not a coolant in the trans fluid issue
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
