Hi: My name is shottiemar, I reside in Jamaica. I have a 2006 LE Titan. One Sunday evening drive I was attempting to put the truck in reverse. It went into park instead and thats it. The gear lever refuses to move from park to any other position, even after switching off and on again. Any suggestions? I'm stuck in the middle of the road.

Thanks in advance

did you figure it out?? I saw the other old thread you pulled up. did you try looking at that fuse or manually unlocking the shifter gate?
Also i know that the shifter will not move out of park if the brake pedal is not pressed. There is 2 wires that it triggers make sure they are connected by seeing if the brake lights illuminate. did you get it new/used?

Thanks for the reply. It's still a problem. Its a new 2005 LE Model. The brake light does illuminate and I pressed the brake pedal all the way to the floor. I been checking on a number of fuses but they are so many of them and they are so tiny. All seem to be ok. How do you manually release the shift? Is there a button somewhere? I'm searching but have found none so far.
Thanks

The manual shift release is located just above the "P" indicator on the console. You will need to remove the plastic cap to get at it.

Is the shifter is on the steering column? If it is, the gear shifter can become stuck if the steering wheel is turned hard one way or the other. Try turning the wheel a little in the direction that it is already turned while trying to get the shifter out of park. Be sure to turn the ignition switch to the on position to unlock the steering wheel first.

There is a little circle just above the P indicator on the console , Is this the manual shift release. I'm checking but I'm not seeing anywhere where it can be removed. Do I have to like break it open?

use a plastic pen cap so you do not scratch the finish. or put some masking tape in the end of the screwdriver to pry it up. also try turning the wheel a bit. are you parked on a hill with the wheels turned?

Oh dear , Thanks much. I managed to raise the cap and released it with a disposable dinner fork.

I made an error by saying 06, it's really 05. So its not such a blend. lol... I wish they could manufacture those. Thanks very much for the help. I'm most grateful. I'm safe and home and my is wife is happy.
