I have a 2004 nissan Titan and the solenoid that is part of the shifter has gone bad. The dealer says the solenoid does not have its own part#, so I would have to pay $425 for the entire shifter assembly. I am trying to find someone that can help me find the solenoid somewhere else.It has this # on it 457-oc39 or 457-0c39(can't tell if it's a number 0 or letter o). If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

There is a service recall on the shift lever assembly that is on the steering column. This may help you with your problem if the shifter is on the column.
It is listed below from the Alldata information website.
Date: September 22, 2004
VOLUNTARY RECALL CAMPAIGN A/T COLUMN SHIFTER
CAMPAIGN I.D. # / NHTSA #: RU403 / 04V-408
2004 Titan (A60)
1N6AA0***4N504115 - 505574
1N6AA0***4N527814 - 548997
NOTE: You MUST use Service Communications to confirm campaign eligibility.
Nissan has determined that some 2004 model year Nissan Titan vehicles may have a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety. There is a possibility that the transmission shift lever assembly for the column shifter may have been damaged during manufacture. The damage could eventually result in the failure of the portion of the assembly that holds the shift lever in the "Park" position when the key is not in the ignition or when the key is in the "Lock", "Off" or "Accessory" position. This would allow the shift lever to be capable of being moved from "Park" without the key or when the ignition is in a position other than "On". In some situations, the ability of the shift lever to be moved out of the Park position could result in roll away of the vehicle and cause a crash. To prevent this condition from occurring, Nissan is conducting a Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign to replace the shift lever assembly.
Nissan has assigned identification number RU403 to this campaign. This number must appear on all communications and documentation of any nature dealing with this campaign.
NUMBER OF VEHICLES POTENTIALLY AFFECTED:
The number of vehicles potentially affected is approximately 5,600.
It is the retailer's responsibility to check Service Communications for the campaign status on each vehicle falling within the range of this voluntary safety recall which for any reason enters the service department. This includes vehicles purchased from private parties or presented by transient (tourist) owners and vehicles in a dealer's inventory. Federal law requires that new vehicles in dealer inventory which are the subject of a safety recall must be corrected prior to sale. Failure to do so can result in civil penalties by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While federal law applies only to new vehicles, Nissan strongly encourages dealers to correct any used vehicles in their inventory before they are retailed.
If this doesn't apply to your truck then you can use the suggestion below.
If you go to your local salvage yard you can ask them if they have the complete shifter assembly. It will probably be a lot cheaper than the dealer.
You can take the solenoid off the shifter you bought and install it into your truck.
This is just a suggestion.
