I was driving my 2018 nissan sentra, and the accelleration went out at about 35mph. I pulled the car over, shut the car off, turned it back on, then the car would not move when shifting to drive or reverse. Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking? There was no leaking. it's the original transmission with 70,000 miles Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sentra yourself? What have you tried so far? I will try to fix it myself. I topped off [coolant](/topics-coolant-nissan/) (with it being winter), checked the battery terminals, unhooked the battery, Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? That's about it

now your transmission cannot shift to Drive? Are you still on the side of the road?

The car is in a driveway now. I can shift into Drive, Reverse, and Low, but the car will not move
Automotive Expert
Check the transmission fluid level.

see link because your vehicle does not have a dipstick.

okay, I printed that out. I am not with my car right now, but will go to it in about an hour and a half

there were no normal warning signs of a slipping transmission
Automotive Expert
Okay good. The AEB malfunction for many Nissans due to a bad collision sensor. This sensor would cause the vehicle not moved like what you're experiencing. Currently, there is a class action lawsuit going on regarding this problem.

where is the sensor located at in the car? I have been talking to a couple mechanic friends, and they believe it to be a sensor.
Automotive Expert
Nissan’s AEB relies on a radar in the front grill.

underneath the headlight?
Automotive Expert
They are known to go bad prematurely. can you turn off the aeb?

no. and when I go through the settings on the info display, there are no options to turn it off
Automotive Expert
I would advise visiting the dealer on this. Apparently, this problem is across the board for Nissans. Make sure the front grille and bumper is clean from obstruction.

I called the dealer, and wouldn't look at it without charging a fee

see link for TSB from NISSAN
