It’s says no key and when clicking the push button it says lock
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 1 month ago

Ok, all that means is the key is not detected. Otherwise it would at least switch to ACC or ON position.

Does the remote still lock and unlock the doors?

When i stick the key in the key ignition bc the push start won’t work, the lights come on and blink and the beep beep like when your doors open sounds, but the steering wheel is stiff and the push start button light says lock it won’t go the acc or turn on light.
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 1 month ago

when you say you stick the key in the ignition, you mean the WHOLE FOB in the FOB slot correct?
