carguy1 :

HI there! Will the engine crank over? Do you hear a click or anything?

Customer:

nothing, it does say no key on info board? does that mean i need to use other key?

carguy1 :

Yes, it is not recognizing the key that you are using. I would start with a different key. If you try to much it could lock out both keys and leave you stranded

Customer:

i'm not with the vehicle, my wife is. she just called and said when she was loading boxes into the back, one of our kids locked the doors with the key and the drivers door was open, she got in then nothing happened. she hit unlocked on the key and BOOM, it started!! thanks for your time.

Customer:

cheers

Customer:

johnathan

carguy1 :

You are very welcome! I love a happy ending! Glad to hear it was that simple!

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!
