Customer Question
The keyless entry is...

The keyless entry is not working.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Nissan. The Nissan Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Typically i just press the button but nothing happens when i press the button.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

There is no sound, and no entry

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Nissan Mechanic should know about your Nissan?

Well, i don't know. it's been sitting in the driveway for the entire weekend and now i can't even get into the car. if the battery is dead i don't know how we can jump it without entry. so, to answer the question i guess i won't be able to do it on my own no.

The remote doesn't work? The touch entry on the door handles does not work? is that correct?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The touch on car does not work and when I use the remote it also does not work.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you know if the battery is good in the remote? Did you try changing that?

I cannot get into the car

Does the head lights turn on? You may simply have a dead battery. Let me know..

I cannot get into the car. The car does not have kehole
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

It should have one on the drivers side door.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

The drivers side door is the only door that should have a door lock cylinder so if the battery goes dead, the mechanical key is used to open the car to open the hood.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Nope
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Just a button. A dead button.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok will check again is it under door handle?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

I have seen customers get the cap from the passenger side and install it on the drivers side to hide the lock cylinder. With this type of issue you would need to break the cap off to expose the lock cylinder or call road side to open the car for you.

It sounds more like you are dealing with a dead battery.

Dead battery. I got in. Thanks. So how can I get a battery deliveredand installed
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Well if it is a dead battery. You can see if you can have a friend jump start you to get the car started so you can pick up a battery to replace it or to have yours tested.

wait the lights for airbag go on but nothing else
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

That is cause of the weak battery. You can probably expect a Air Bag light cause of the low battery voltage.
