Question Rear brake noise after changing

Hello, new member here. I recently changed the rear brakes on our 2016 Maxima based on the dealership saying they needed changed. After changing them, got ready for the good ol test drive. After starting the car, started to pump up the brakes and as I did I suddenly heard a clicking sound that seemed to come from the center console shifter. Once into gear the sound went away. And once back in park, the sound came back every time I hit the brake pedal. Has anybody else encountered this issue? Also there seems to be a very faint beeping sound when I'm driving...but you have to listen hard for it and was never there until after the pads were changed. Thanks!!!

Can't speak for the beeping sound, but the clicking coming from your center console when you depress the brake pedal sounds like the "shift lock-out" solenoid is doing what it is supposed to do except more noisily than it should. I have no idea why the brake job made it louder as the tech did not need to go anywhere near this system. May be a coincidence. The noise cause: The system basically demands that your foot should be depressing the brake pedal before you can shift out of P and into Drive or Reverse. When the brake pedal is depressed an electric command is sent to a solenoid that moves a plastic pawl out of the way of your shift mechanism, thereby allowing you to move the shifter. It is a safety device to keep kids, dogs, etc. from accidentally moving the shifter into reverse and/or drive potentially causing a catastrophic accident. Regarding the noise, in all of my cars it sounds like a faint clicking sound.

Thanks for the feedback. I changed the pads myself (not much to it) and I was nowhere near the solenoid. It's not a deal breaker; more annoying than anything!

You changed the pads, did you change the rotors or at least have them turned/machined? You really shouldn't just change pads without resurfacing the rotors...
