While pulling out of a parking lot, I heard what sounded like a pop and the car dropped out of drive. Using the shift column makes no difference. No gears will engage. When putting the car into park, it is still free rolling, like the car is stuck in neutral. If there is something such as a shift mechanism which connects to the shift column and changes gears on the transmission, could this be the fault?
Yes. I was thinking the same thing. Might be a broken shift cable or connection on either end of the shift cable. Let me look in the manual to see what I can find. The Manual does list one that fits 2009-2014, OEM part #349351AA0A. I found one for sale at NissanPartsDeal.com at $104.13
