This symbol indicates there is an issue with they computer recognizing the key being used to start the vehicle, either the key will have to be replaced or reprogrammed ,this can only be done at a Nissan dealership. Please rate my service, If you have any additional questions I will answer them ,until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
