Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Are you trying to program the key or the key fob?Also, will the key turn if you just put it in once and try to turn it?
Ok, well you have to use the key that is for your car or you could set off the immobilizer. Disregard the key that isn't yours, you don't need it.
Use your old key and the new fob and you should be able to get it into programming mode.

You cannot reprogram the key yourself. It has to be registered with the computer using software either the locksmith should have or the dealer. I thought you were trying to program the keyfob for the remote locks. This is why I asked if you were trying to program the key or the keyfob in the beginning.
Well first off, you will have to have it cut to work, second it will then need to be reprogrammed because the key is a chip key.
The programming will have to be done by the dealer. The scan tool is required and some special code has to be put into that in order to break into the security system just to program the key. It's a royal pain.
MY dealership would normally charge a half hours labor to do the programming, so maybe $50-$100 tops
Do you need further assistance with this?
