This can mean the battery in the fob has failed, do you have a second key fob to try?

Some of these have a slot for you to put the remote in to the left side of the dash. The other style you hold the keyfob very close to the ignition button and press start. If the battery has failed in the remote this should help. Please try this and let me know.

It is also possible the actual problem is the battery on the car, but since it isn't recognizing the key, that's really very unlikely.

Sorry, I am unable to make a call at this time.

I am going to opt out. I am sorry, but it's not a simple fix.

The other experts will pick up the question. This site is real and we help a lot of people. I am sorry you are in this situation, but I am unable to help.

Opt out. Wish I had never opted in. Will report this to Nissan. Waste of time and money

This was a waste of time and energy in An emergency. I want a refund. Not only didn't get assistance but didn't come close to help resolve situation but quick to charge.
