hello this is mike an expert from just answer and a master tech at nissan dealership. with your 08 armada you will need to verify that the 10amp trans fuse located inside the ipdm is not blow and that the 10amp fuse inside the fuse block is not blow after verifying that those are good. you can verify that you have power and ground at the trans connect on the passenger side of the trans if you need the pin and wire color i can help with that. and also will need the tcm to be reprogramed at a nissan dealership with consult 3

Transmission Mechanic: Nissan mike, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

okay power are going to be pin 1 is going to be pink and pin 2 is pink and pin 4 is going to be purple pin 6 is yellow with red tracer and 7 is going to be red and pin 9 will be brown with red tracer for power and for ground it will be pin 5 and pin 10 they are going to be your grounds. if pin 9 has no power you will need to test and inspect your ignition relay which is located inside the ipdm and can be removed.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
we have power and grounds. power at pin 9. not sure if it needs to go to Nissan for a tcm "learn" or "recalibration".
Transmission Mechanic: Nissan mike, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

yes correct nissan dealership will be your next step for a tcm program/reprogram i see it all the time very common after a tcm replacement new or used or trans replacement new or used. after that the park position signal will illumiate on cluster and all will function properly
