Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

These style remotes are really like the key for the car. The only way they are programmed is with a scanner. What number fob battery did you put in the remote? Do you have another remote? Does that work?

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!
