Customer Question
2010 370Z (original owner)...

2010 370Z (original owner) 33,000 miles. Intelligent key warning light on, engine won't turn over, physical key in dashboard slot & has no affect - now key stuck. All functions of security locking / unlocking work. Brake pedal HARD. What can I do to override computer or at least get it out of park?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

No.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 370Z yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing other than fiddling with start / stop button, brake pedal and mechanical key.

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

The first thing we need to do is get that mechanical key out of the fob slot. The remote goes into that slot, not the key.

Do you have a pair of needle nose pliers and a fairly long skinny flat head screw driver?

What Customers are Saying:

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!
