Default 04' 5spd Auto Transmission Issue

Hi everyone,

I need some advice. My 04 5spd Auto transmission seems to be in fail-safe mode. It is stuck in 5th gear only. When i put it in sport shift it says 5th. My check engine light is on. I took it to my local nissan dealer and the estimate they gave me for a new transmission is $4600.00. I still owe money on my car and is not worth it for me to pay that much since my car has 107,5XX miles on it. Is it worth it to rebuild my transmission? I've researched and cheapest price i found was about $3300.00. Is it just the valve body that needs replacement? I cannot determine the code on what wrong. I need advice ASAP because i might have to sell the car if not worth replacing the transmission...

Thanks everyone

sounds like you need a valve body and TCM reprogram after that.

Mines started to act up , stuck in 5th , I had to cruise it on the HWY , shift it to N
Restart the car while cruising in N , then it would shift back in the proper gear.

this was a starting sign of things going south.
