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

Did you try programming the keys? That is what the code is indicating.

Let me know..

I tried a reset by cycling the original key on and off three times. Is there any other way to do it ?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 11 months ago

That is how you would take it out of lock mode. But if that doesn't work, and when you turn the key to the ON position and the security light is solid, then the key would need to be programmed with a scanner for it to start the car. The car can't read the chip in the key. That is why it would need to be programmed. That can only be done with a scanner. Most mobile locksmiths can program keys if you wanted to try that.

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!
