Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
The video does not work. Which lights are flashing when the alarm is going off?
Does the key work in the passenger door or trunk?
The car will not start with those keys. You need to have a chip key.
Yes the video works now. Thank you..
I just double checked.. 2000 was the first year for the chip key for the Altima. 97 was the first year for the Maxima. So you don't need a chip key..
Does any of those keys work in the passenger door or trunk?
Sorry for the delay, I had gone to bed since it was late.
Your car doesn't have a immobilizer. But you need to get the key to work in either of the front doors or trunk to turn off the factory alarm. Once you turn off the factory alarm, the car should turn over to start.
What I would recommend you do is to remove the trunk lock cylinder and send it out to get coded so the key will work. Once the key works in the trunk, you can then use the trunk lock cylinder turn off the factory alarm.
Do you have a remote for the car?
If your security system is active it will keep the car from turning over and starting. So we need to get the factory security system disabled.
As for the lock cylinder, you can either remove it and take it to a locksmith, or have a mobile locksmith come to you and code it for you.
If you get a key made for the trunk it should work in all doors and glove box and ignition
Let me know how you make out!
