Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. Are you getting any key flashing in the dash?

Hi Patrick the car got started and again today it is not starting. What might be the reason.?
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Interesting, you must have a immobilizer issue, I would bite the bullet and get some keys made and programed to the vehicle at the dealer, if your lucky you can get a lock smith to do it at a lower cost, not many have this capability but some do and they are a lot cheaper than the dealer, and if you do decide to do that order some fobs online and keys and they both can cut and program them for you. You should be able to negotiate a hours labor at the dealer for the program.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
approx. how much will it cost in total.?
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

keys and fobs and all right under 200, if you can get them to agree to the hour, everything is negotiable, and with a lock smith even cheaper if they have the capability, but thats you supplying the keys and fobs
