Got an 2004 Sentra 1.8l that sometimes will not shift from 1st to 2nd. All I have to do to correct the issue is turn the car off and turn it back on. It may go 100 miles before doing it again or could be at the next light. Could this be the VSS I r am I probably looking at a bigger transmission issue?

For intermittent issues, dealerships have dataloggers or event recorders that trigger on the fault or by customer action and read out what the car was "thinking about", but they little financial incentive to admit they have these devices.

For a workaround, you may be able to put a momentary contact normally closed push button switch in series with the fuse that powers this particular transmission circuit, but there may be other intermittent reasons for no upshift.

Finding the root cause rather than band-aiding symptoms is a good idea.
