Hey there, thanks for the question.

Does everything else work normally on the truck? Does it start and idle normally? Just the remote is not working?

Everything else works properly.
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago

Are you certain you installed the battery the right direction. I only say this because when installed properly it looks upside down because its face down.

It is installed properly
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago

Well there are quite a few fuses in the wiring diagram, but most just go to the BCM since it's controls the keyless system.

There is one fuse (Fuse 53) in the IPDM that is too the NATS antenna. That would be worth checking though.

The other fuses are 21, 19, 1 in the interior junction block. They usually contribute to other possible problems though, but worth checking.

None of this information was helpful. Neither one of the factory door lock remote lock or unlock my truck.
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago
Did you even check the fuses? Do you need a diagram?Your question specifically asked about a fuse or relay. But the NATS system uses the BCM.so I started by giving you what you asked for then asked how you wanted to proceed, but you have yet to say whether you checked them or anything?
