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

Is the security light on solid when the ignition is turned to the ON position?

Hi Jay, thank you for your response

The light stays solid when the key is turned on
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

That is a sign that the key may not be programmed to the car or it lost it's programming. Do you have another key you can try?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I've tried another key too
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Both the keys were just recently programmed and were working fine
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

Are either of the keys after market keys?

I'm not sure
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
They have the Nissan logo on them
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

who programmed them?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

The reason I am asking is cause if it was not programmed by the dealer, it may not have been done right which is why it did not hold the programming.

If it was done by the dealer, you would have a 1 year warranty on the work.

When the security light is solid, that is a key programming issue. So either the keys were not programmed right, or the NAT's antenna is not working properly.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. That is how I get credit for my work. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.

Thanks Jay!

They were originally programmed by the Nissan dealership but they had issues programming the keys
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

If you have one defective key, it can knock out the programming for them.

Do you also have remote start in the car?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

either a defective key can cause the hard programming, or a bad NATs antenna. How long ago did the dealer program the keys for you?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I do not have remote start
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
What do you suggest, take it back to the dealer ?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
how can I confirm it's a key issue
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
not the immobilizer or something else
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

As I said, if it's not a defective key, then I would check the NATs antenna. That is what reads the chip in the keys.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Is there a special technique to check the antenna
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

You would try to program 1 key at a time. To see if one particular keys gives you a problem to isolate if it's a key issue.

If both keys act the same, then I would suspect a NATs antenna could be causing the issue.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

but yes, I would take it to the dealer to have it checked.

There is factory diagnostics to check the NATs antenna.
