Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,my name is John welcome to Justanswer,are you still online to chat?
Hello John I sure hope you can help im at my wits end.
Are you near the car?
car is in garage but accessible.
Ok if you can go to the car and use the key in the drivers door lock and cycle the key to unlock twice,when I say cycle I mean two turns of the key without removing the key,This should reset the system
do you have any ideas i can try tonight and then get back with you. OK Ill be right back
ok i will wait
is there anything else i can try because it seems his keys are so wore out they wont lock or unlock the door
It wont move in the door lock?
no and there is alot of sloppy play though they work in the ignition.
Ok what i suggest is disconnect both battery cables and touch the positive and negative cables together about 1 minute then leave battery disconnected for a half hour and see if that resets it
O.K. CAN I GET IN TOUCH WITH IN ABOUT 1 HOUR. JEFF
Yes post what you have found and i will ck back in an hour,Thanks
COOL MY FRIEND WILL BE MOST HAPPY IF I CAN GET HIS CAR GOING AGAIN.
Me too c u later
Cking back, did you find anything?
John,tried the battery cable bit and still nothing,I do hear the relay next to the door clicking though, jeff.
Ok for tonite ck all the fuses in the car and under the hood,also if the key will turn in the passenger door lock or trunk lock cylinder that should reset the system too
O.K IVE CHECKED ALL THE FUSES AND THE DAMNED KEY WONT WORK TRUNK NOR PASSENGER DOOR BUT WILL CHEK FUSES AGAIN.
IF THE ALARM IS ACTIVATED WILL I STILL HEAR THE BLUE RELAY CLICKING NEAR FUSE PANEL OR COULD IT BE BAD RELAY.
CAN I GET WITH YOU ON THIS MATTER TOMMOROW.
Do you know what relay is clicking?I wont be available until tommorrow evening is that ok
THATS FINE I HAVE TO TAKE FRIEND TO HOSPITAL AT 4:00PM ANY WAY AND ILL CHECK THAT RELAY I REALLY APPRIECIATE THE EFFORT YOUR PUTTING IN AND MY BUDDY DOES ALSO,THANK YOU.
Thank you I appreciate it.I will get some diagrams and more info on how to defeat the system,talk to you tommorrrow
Hi jeff can we chat on this question?
john are you on chat
Yes im am here
reply back when you get the chance this is jeff from yesturday
Yes,i have a couple more questions
When you turn the key to start the car does the security lamp stay on solid,blink or nothing?
lite stays blinking and there is a relay behing fuse block thats clicking
Ok do you know which one is clicking?
i really cant tell because its behing the fuse block
Ok does the alarm ever sound,im trying to figure out if the anti-theft system is the cause or something else,what lead up to the no-start you have now?
YOU CAN LOCK AND UNLOCK CAR WITHOUT THE ALARM GOING OFF BUT THE LITE STAYS FLSASHING AND CAR WONT START.IT STARTED WHEN FRIEND LOCKED DOOR THEN LOSS HIS REMOTE
I see, I think the best way to fix this is to have another key made so you can turn it inone of the lock cylinders to cancel the anti-theft system.You may be able to have one made at lowes or home depot for a couple bucks
FREIND STATED HE TRIED BUT KEYS WERE TO WORE TO DUPLICATE BUT I WIILL TRYTOMMOROW.
This may turn out to be a tough one if it cant be duplicated
There isnt a spare remote anywhere?
WELL ILL DO MY BEST TO GET A GOOD CUT AND PLAY WITH IT FOR AWHILE. CAN I STILL GET WITH YOU TOMMORRROW. SORRY DUDE BUT I ASKED HIM AND HE SAID THATS IT.
Yes you can post a reply here anytime what do you mean he said thats it?
HE ONLY HAD THE ONE SET AND NOW HE HAS LOST IT,ARE THERE ALARM REMOTES THAT WOULD WORK FOR THIS MODEL LIKE OFFBRAND THAT YOU CAN PROGRAM TO THE CARS ALARM
There are remotes available on e-bay you just have to make sure they will work with your Maxima,also i can send you the procedure on how to program in a new remote.I think we still need to get the car alarm unlocked first before you can add in a remote
O.K ILL WORK ON IT TOMMOROW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT I FIND THANK YOU AND TALK TO YOU TOMOROW.
Ok have a good evening!
