2013 Nissan Altima the shifter refused to move. one mechanic is say it is fuses in the Junction Box or replace the Shift Lock Solenoid.

Hi there. I’d say about 90 percent of the time, issues with the shifter not working correctly are related to debris or other obstructions trapping the spring to the shift lock to allow the shifter to move from park to all gears on an automatic transmission. In some cases, it can be a fuse (on an electronic transmission), or a problem with the brake pedal sensor, which unlocks the shifter from park (as you have to apply pressure on your pedal in order to accomplish this step). You might want to have a mobile mechanic complete a car is hard to shift inspection, so they can pinpoint why your Altima is having this problem and recommend the right repairs be completed.
