2009 Nissan Versa S Automatic 1.8 L Hatchback. Very often wont start in P, have to move to N and then back to P to start. Also pops from D in to N on the highway. I have to hold it in place. The linkage all looks good and the console is clean. Any suggestions

Your neutral safety switch maybe bad causing it to not start in Park (P)

But I dunno why it pops into Neutral from Drive... There should be a shift lock in the shifter. I would look into that. Let us know what you find.

Theres usually nothing to prevent an automatic transmission from being pushed into neutral from drive, its a safety thing.

OP it sounds like the shifter mechanism might be bad. Get it looked at.
