Why might a 1995 Nissan Altima transaxle not downshift with the accelerator pedal pressed to the floor?

The same thing happened to me with my 2002 Altima. I bought a new floor mat with high ridges around the perimeter to prevent water and dirt from spilling onto the carpeting. The ridge was directly under the pedal preventing it from going all the way down. I simply moved the mat over, and the transaxle downshifts fine again. It could be as simple as that. Good Luck

No, the 06 Altima is a refinement of the 03 Altima - and basically the same size.

Overdrive switch is located on the gear shift stick, just below the handle. You could toggle with your right thumb to see if the O/D light comes on when pressed.
