Need Help!

I have a 1993 Gxe that i purchased about 4 yrs ago, I'm having a problem with the (Shift Pattern Select Switch) which is located near the gear shifter inside the vehicle. The problem is that the light doesn't come on for a few seconds when i start the vehicle, when this happens, the transmission seems to be stuck in 1st gear and does not change gears once driven. Does anyone know what may be the problem/fix for this issue?

hmm i had a similar problem years ago where mine wouldnt start, it ended up being the shifter bushing under the car. its like $2 from Nissan and takes 5 minutes to install under a heat shield under the car, my shifter wouldnt go into park fully and it caused no cranks

so is it permanently in first gear or can you get into park and reverse?
