Customer Question
The car won't shift...

The car won't shift at all. The VDC light and Slip light and check engine light are on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It stays on. Hitting the switch doesn't change the light or the failure to shift.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2009 Murano

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Murano yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just checked fluid levels ad reviewed the owners manual. I don't intend to work on it other than to add fluid if needed. Both transmission and transmission fluids were ok

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really. It's parked in the driveway and can't be moved.

o​k if it only allows pcm access (many modules on car) you will be limited to the pcm codes and data which may may not help us.....But since you have that lets ck and see if you have any trouble codes....Ok?

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!
