Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
I have seen where new remote batteries if being on the shelf for a period of time ( cause they don't rotate stock ) will be weak or even dead. I would try 1 more remote battery and see if that resolves your issue. Since this is a 2015, if you have under 36,000 miles, this would be under warranty. So I would have the dealer change the battery for you at no charge and I am sure that will resolve your issue. If it was a remote issue, that would also be covered, but if it was a remote issue, it would not work at all. Plus just so you know, if the remote stopped working, to start the car all you have to do is hold the Nissan logo on the remote over the start button and hit the start button and that is how you would emergency start the car.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

Here is a perfect way to test it actually. Do you have any issues with your other remote?
No problem, we can still communicate like this. I was going to suggest if you have no issues with your second remote, try swapping the batteries and see if the problem switches..
Oh.. You only have one remote? How many miles on the car?
Don't see remote issues really on these cars. If there is a remote issue, it wouldn't work at all, or one function such as lock or unlock would not work. The car is still under warranty. I know you don't want to swing by the dealer, but if it's as simple as a defective remote battery, it could fool you since you just replaced it. The dealer would replace the remote battery for you at no charge, at the same time if you only have one remote, you may want to purchase a 2nd one and have that programmed.
