HI there! If it is the factory system, here is the procedure.
Close the trunk and hood, then open the drivers door and lock all the doors with the door lock switch, then close the driver door.
Wait 30 seconds and unlock the door with the key.Then wait 30 more seconds and open the door. This will reset the factory alarm system
Hope this helps!

I JUST DID WHAT YOU JUST SHOW ME BUT IT DOES NOT WORK

Mike V., Infiniti Mechanic replied 5 years ago.
Are you sure it is the factory alarm and not some aftermarket alarm?
Are the lights flashing and the horn blaring?
Customer reply replied 5 years ago.

 

YES, THIS IS FACTORY ALARM. THE CAR WON'T START.

 

Mike V., Infiniti Mechanic replied 5 years ago.
Ok,and the lights are flashing and horn is going off?
Customer reply replied 5 years ago.

 

NO, THE LIGHT NOT FLASHING WHEN YOU PUT THE KEY ON. AND NO HORN.tHE MAIN THING IS THE CAR IS NOT STARTED. lAST NIGHT THE MECHANIC CAME AND PERFORM SOME PROCEDURE AND IT WORRK. AND NOW IT DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. CHECK ALL FUSED AND RELAY AND EVEN DIS CONNECT THE BATTERY IT STILL DOES NOT WORK.

Mike V., Infiniti Mechanic replied 5 years ago.
Well, I am sorry, I know of no other way to reset the factory alarm.
Perhaps the car has a weak battery, or a problem with the neutral safety switch. Try starting it in neutral and also try a jump start.
Customer reply replied 5 years ago.

 

YES, IDID JUMP STARTED AND ALSO SWITCHED TO NEUTAL. STILL DOES NOT WORK. I GUEST IT MUST TOW TO INFINITY DEALER SHIP THEN. tHANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

Mike V., Infiniti Mechanic replied 5 years ago.
Sorry I don't have the answer for you today. According to the owners manual all you should have to do is unlock the car using the key.
Customer reply replied 5 years ago.

 

Thank you very much for your help but your advise does not fix the problem and my car end up in Infinity dealer ship now. I can not say Accept Answer. Sorry.

No need, it is an automated email. Would be nice to have some follow up once it is repaired. Thanks
