I do not have a key fob nor remote controller with this car. I bought it used with only one key( no fob/remote). I bought 2 new transponder (chip) keys, had them cut at a hardware store, and now they must be programmed to energize the ignition while the key is in the start (crank) mode.
I have been told that a dealer must perform this function. However, I am 105 miles from the nearest Nissan dealer. That is why I saked you. Thanks, Jeff
I am satisfied with the answer; I am not happy with the answer. I already knew the answer your tech provided, but thought that in today's high tech world, there would be a practical answer or a practical technician with a simple method that would prevent me from having to drive 105 miles (one way) to have a Nissan dealer program the transponder chip in my new ignition key.
As you know, in essence my question was "is there a way to program my transponder key so I won't have to drive 105 miles to a dealer?" In essence your answer was " no" Regards, Jeff
