The most common reasons would be the reverse brake assembled wrong or damaged or the shift linkage adjusted incorrect.

I don't think it is the linkage. When I put the shifter in reverse, You can feel it engage but it won't pull.
Nissan Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

In reverse with throttle applied does it bog down or rev freely and high?

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
