Hello,
 
I have a 3 yr old 26k miles QQ Acenta.  Last night, for no apparent reason the gear lever wouldn't move out of the 'P' posn.  I know there were earlier posts on this but thought I'd start a new Topic to bring it back rather than a 'bump' with a post.
 
When it happened I was in the company of people who were very much into cars of any sort!  I'd no sooner found out from the manual that to release it I needed to press the 'Shift Lock' button down at the same time as moving the lever into the required gear than one of my pals came off the phone to say his mate had said pump the brake pedal and it will be fine!!
 
I did what the manual said and it was fine .... but only once.  The 'Shift lock' button needed to be pushed in and the lever moved to the required gear each time it was started.  Then I tried doing as he suggested with pumping the brake a couple of times before starting it: amazingly that worked as well!  Hmm.
 
This morning I called at the Nissan dealer (starting the car using the 'Shift lock' button' but nobody available until Monday.  I decided I'd try the brake thing again to see what's what - the info seemed to come from a reliable source.  Hmm ... a couple of tries doing it with ignition on, then off, and some success with moving to a gear .... and then I discovered it works every time if I turn the ignition on, start the car and holding the knob on the gearstick (which is refusing to press in) press the brake pedal a couple of times and the knob mysteriously goes in and I can select any gear I want.
 
I know there is talk of a solenoid issue here and I can see that could be the case .... but the brake pedal thing puts a whoe new slant on it.
 
I'd be plesed to hear from anybody who posted on the other topic ... or anybody who has any thoughts on this.
 
Phil

I have checked previously with my dealer as I was concerned with some reports of faulty CVT boxes.

He advised me that they have sold CVT transmissions for years and they have only ever had two cars with problems.

Both of them required a new switch in the selector.

Evidently a simple and relatively cheap job for them to do.

OK, thanks for that.  I'll see how I get on when I call them on Monday.

Hi
I have a QQ 2ltr n-tec 2012. Could anyone please tell me if I can just plug a USB pen drive into the USB slot in the centre consol and have it show on my nissan connect screen. I want to use this as my music source.
Thanks

The first time I've read that a problem with the CVT was solved with a USB stick.... wonder oh wonder....
