Nissan Rogue Shift Lock System

Nissan Rogue Shift Lock System

This basic guide explains breifly how the Nissan Rogue shift lock system works.

Description

The shift lever cannot be shifted from the “P” position unless the brake pedal is depressed while the ignition switch is set to ON. The shift lock is unlocked by turning the shift lock solenoid ON when the ignition switch is set to ON, the park position switch is turned ON (selector lever is in “P” position), and the stop lamp switch is turned ON (brake pedal is depressed) as shown in the operation chart in the figure. Therefore, the shift lock solenoid receives no ON signal and the shift lock remains locked if all of the above conditions are not fulfilled. (However, selector operation is allowed if the shift lock release button is pressed.)

Shift Lock Operation at the P Position

When Brake Pedal Is Not Depressed (No Selector Operation Allowed) The shift lock solenoid (1) is turned OFF (not energized) and the solenoid rod (A) is extended with the spring when the brake pedal is not depressed (no selector operation allowed) with the ignition switch ON. The connecting lock lever (B) is located at the position shown in the figure when the solenoid rod is extended. It prevents the movement of the detent rod (C). For these reasons, the selector lever cannot be shifted from the “P” position.

 

When Brake Pedal Is Depressed (Shift Operation Allowed) The shift lock solenoid (1) is turned ON (energized) when the brake pedal is depressed with the ignition switch ON. The solenoid rod (A)
is compressed by the electromagnetic force. The connecting lock lever (B) rotates when the solenoid is activated. Therefore, the detent rod (C) can be moved. For these reasons, the selector lever
can be shifted to other positions.

The shift lock solenoid (1) is not energized when the ignition switch is in any position other than ON. In this condition, the shift mechanism is locked and “P” position is held. The operation cannot be performed from “P” position if the brake pedal is depressed with the ignition switch ON when the operation system of shift lock solenoid is malfunctioning. However, the lock lever (A) is forcibly rotated and the shift lock is released when the shift lock release button (B) is pressed from above. Then the selector operation from “P” position can be performed.

Key Lock Mechanism

The key cannot be set to LOCK when the selector lever is not selected to “P” position. This prevents the key from being removed from the key cylinder. Key Lock Status The slider (A) in the key cylinder (B) is moved to the left side of the figure when the selector lever is in any position other than “P” position. The rotator (C) that rotates together with the key (D) cannot be
rotated for this reason. The key cannot be removed from the key cylinder because it cannot be turned to LOCK (E). Key Unlock Status The slider (A) in the key cylinder (B) is moved to the right side of the figure when the selector lever is in “P” position and the finger is removed from the selector button. The rotator (C) can be rotated for this reason. The key (D) can be removed from the key cylinder because it can be turned to LOCK (E).
