Hi, I have a Nissan Sunny, 2003 model, Gulf Specifications. It has run for around 95000 kms, and around a month back a problem with the gear arose. It is a Automatic gear and when I drive the car, it gets stuck on the first gear i.E. The gear does not shift to the second gear. It does not occur every time but it does take place once a while. I usually resolve it by either halting the car and starting the ignition again or it shifts after a while after decelerating and again accelerating.
I consulted a few garage's and some say to change the gear oil while some say there is a sensor problem.
Could anyone please advice me on this situation as it would be of great help.
Thank You!

Check and test the throttle position and vehicle speed sensor. Also there are shaft speed sensors that sounds like have gone bad as well. We should start by checking the codes here is a guide to help us get started.

Thanks a lot for the early reply.
Do you have any clue how much would the testing and replacement cost?

I figured out by scanning the car that the input shaft speed sensor went out once I replaced it everything works great.

Thank you dheeraj for your reply. When I enquired in the spare parts shops about the shaft speed sensor they don't understand. Can you share me a picture or any other details.

If you have a scanner that can read the sensor values you can read real time data to see if they are working.

I went to carmax here in qatar for computer scanning. They couldn't find any fault code. They said the problem might be with the gear box

No the turbine sensor is down on the transmission. Here is a video of one being replaced.
