stuck in park periodically

Hellos, here are the specs. 2002 se-r 90k miles automatic no mods.

well, for the past 60 thousand miles, this has been happening. my car gets stuck in park when turning it on for a minute or two, then it shifts out fine.
tranny oil is fine, took it into the dealer at 30k miles, they didnt see it happen so they refused to further investigate it. from what i have found across then net is that it is the interlock switch on the break pedal. i call the dealership and they say its just for the break lights. my lights work, but they said it could still cause the trouble.

Anyone else have this problem, my friend has an old sentra with the same problem. i dont want to buy the part and change it myself just to find out its something else.

thanks

Wiggle the steering wheel while pulling it out. Otherwise you probably have some wear on the park interlock. (*wild guess-based on no information)

Its not the steering wheel lock. Is the interlock your talking about the switch on the break pedal?

With the car in Park, you should hear a clicking sound when you push the brake pedal. This is the sound of the interlock releasing.

even with that sound i still get that problem. I hear sentras are famous for that problem, even in their early days. Also, i took it to the damn dealer, but the pretended it was fine.

i just got through with that problem myself, and it was just before my car got out of warranty. besides the interlock from the brake pedal, there was an issue with a shift release solenoid that caused my car to stay in the park position. i'd hafta use the shift unlock tab on the shifte console in order to get out of park. if the problem is intermittent, the dealer will probably not bother with it unless you could get it to happen in front of a service writer (which of course, with intermittent problems, they never happen while at the dealership or with a mechanic).

There is a manual interlock release. If you manually release it, will it shift out of Park?

I can't recall anyone here having this problem.

I have the opposite problem. I pulled into Bojangles and tried to put the car into park but the button wouldn't push in to move it. I therefore sat there for 15 mins trying to get it to work, then finally I gave up, placed it in neutral and pushed it back out of the parking spot then pulled into the drive-thru. Of course some two fat b1tches in another sentra were ordering like 5 orders and talking obnoxiously so that got me even more pissed off.

Now I'm at home and I can't take my key out of the ignition(car turns off but can't take it out) and its stuck in either neutral or drive. I tried pushing down on the manual shift lock and nothing happens. I pressed the brake and I didn't hear the click sound but im not sure if I'm supposed to hear it in drive. I do have brake lights. Also my radio has been acting up lately putting wierd feedback in speakers sometimes and playing only from a few speakers. I did some radio wiring checking last night and now my luck something seemingly completely unrelated is fawked up. Any ideas?
