My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

If this issue occurs with more then one remote this is usually a fault with the keyless entry control unit/ecu itself as I have seen in some cases if the power locks are still operating as they should be.I would have this tested further to see if this is the cause for sure here and replaced if found to be at fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

thanks for your reply
how can I repair this will I need a new ecu
then it would need reprograming by a nissen tech
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.


Yes the ecu usually requires replacement and once replaced it will have to be programmed to correct this issue here.This has to be done by a nissan tech/dealer in most cases.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.A 5 star rating is appreciated.Thanks Pete
