Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 m45. I changed the battery in the key/remote and now when I put it in the ignition the security light turns solid and the key won't move from the lock position

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

When the key is in it stays solid. No I haven't

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your M45 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I disconnected the battery and tried to reprogram the key

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
