Problem could have been a connection going to the battery was disturbed enough to make issue temporarily disappear. Depending on if it was a connection and whether that connection was in fact fixed by default of a proper battery re and re, it may return. If it does, suspect all connections at battery and frame etc. Even the lighter gauge wires too.

After getting a new engine and there's suddenly rattling on top of your radio dashboard then you should bring it back to the dealership and tell them.
They could have left something loose while in the process of replacing the old engine with the new.

Did you find out what was the problem?
The same happened to me yesterday for the first time. The technician tested and No codes have been found on the ECM.
Please let me know what you find.

We have owned a 2009 versa for a year now and it has started doing the same thing, it doesn't seem to be weather dependent or predictable. it just does it when it wants, I'm thinking about replacing the battery and checking the connections at the starter, also the ground strap to the chassis.
#227 of 242 2012 Versa goes into neutral anytime
Jun 29, 2013 (4:33 am)
We have had our Versa now for a year. Since we have had it while driving it goes into Neutral at any given time. It has happened twice on a freeway and once just this morning while going to work. This time it shut itself off and won't start back up. We have had it to the dealer and they have reset the computer system.
Has anyone else had these issues? The maintenance people are basically looking at us like we are women and don't know what we are talking about or we have hit it into neutral!! I'm about to go off on the maintenance department at the dealer.

Auto or stick? If auto, it could be a linkage issue. Wiggle it or put back into Park in order to restart as there is a safety starting lockout connection in positions of the tranny other than Park or Neutral that may be out of adjustment. Do not lay a purse or any other type thing (electronics) wedged between the gearshift and the lower centre console or elbow rest. Watch for big coat sleeves hanging and grabbing it as you move about in the car?

We are now in 2013, and I have the SAME problem with my Versa 2008 for about 6 months or so.
We got to the Nissan garage 4 times and never get rid of it -_-. Im actually thinking of complaining to the company itself.
It start exactly like this: when I got to a red light, I apply the brake and I hear a noise, seems like a vibration of some sort.
These days, I heard it almost anytimes I'm driving.
The garage told me it was not from the motor or anything in the hood. It seems like they need to remove my dash, it could be under/somewhere in it.
It does a sound like this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MR1W4VlOsF0
I find a lot of people on internet having the same problem, but the garage never heard of it !!!

It's an automatic and we put nothing near the gearshift. The reason for the car to just stop running this time was the fuel pump went out but they didn't say anything about the transmission error the computer read when they got it into the shop.
