Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question
What year GTR is this?
Do you mean one of the codes is B2619?
The B2609 code is for the Steering lock system which most commonly is a steering lock control unit. This other code is not coming up as a good code, and thought maybe you mis-typed it. That is why I asked if you meant B2619
Let me know..
The B2196 is a Nats system code. It's a command from the BCM that will keep the car from starting due to the communication with the Ecm. Since you have a Steering lock issue, and this code, you will need to start with replacing the steering lock control unit first. Then see if operation returns. If not, then you would be looking at a BCM or Ecm issue where advanced electrical diagnostics will need to be done with a advanced level scanner to see which or if both need to be replaced since they are both part of the NATs system.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

The steering lock control unit works off signals sent by the BCM. It's going to require advanced electrical diagnostics to determine if the Bcm will need to be replaced, but it looks like the Steering Lock control unit.
The Radio can't cause this. This is a BCM or Steering lock control unit issue. The scanner would tell you if the requests are being sent and you would check signals with it.
The fobs are programmed first, the once the ignition comes on you can write the configuration to the bcm.
You try to save the original configuration if you can, other wise you would manually write the configuration
You can't. You need to have a scanner that can program keys to program the fobs to the car. That is the only way
The only thing that maybe related between the two is the fuse box. That is really about it.
The more advanced diagnostics would determine that. It's hard to say from this end to exactly say. I have a direction on what to check on your car. But with out properly checking it, I can't say exactly what needs to be done. I mentioned that there is a BCM / Steering lock control unit issue. I would follow the steps to check both of those items with the scanner and which ever leads me to what to isolate the issue.
