Customer Question

I have a 02 Nissan maxima that the battery went dead. After charging the battery the security light comes on when cranking and has a P1610 in the ECM. This indicates that it is in lock mode. How do I get it out of lock mode?

Hello and welcome!

Always try all the keys for the vehicle. Once the code P1610 is set, the escape from lock procedure must be done to reset the immobilizer system. To perform the escape from lock mode, use a programmed key and turn on the ignition switch, wait 5 seconds and turn off the ignition switch. Repeat this procedure 3 times and then the engine should start.
