2001 Nissan Xterra XE 3.3L V6 4wd auto
I've read that over and over, it stays in gear. Doesn't roll when I put it into park, shifts freely and smooth into 2hi, 4hi and 4lo. I've been told a short can throw false codes and today I was told that a harness from your starter goes through that relay. If there is a short or that plug is loose (bad connection) I can see why it would throw that warning light. I'm about to go dig into all of that right now.Additional reference:

From the manual:
Automatic transmission park
warning light ( model)
This light indicates that the automatic transmission
parking function is not engaged. If
the transfer control shift lever is not secured
in any drive position while the automatic
transmission selector lever is in the P (Park)
position, the vehicle may move unexpectedly.
Shift the transfer control shift lever into the
2H, 4H, or 4L position when the warning
light comes on.
When parking, always make sure that the
transfer control shift lever is in 2H, 4H, or
4L and the parking brake is set.
If the ATP light is ON, this indicates that
the automatic transmission P (Park) position
will not function and the transfer
control shift lever is in the N (Neutral)
Failure to engage the transfer control shift
lever in 2H, 4H, or 4L could result in the
vehicle moving unexpectedly, resulting in
serious personal injury or property damage.
