2004 Nissan altima security...

2004 Nissan altima security light stays on and won't start

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

Stay solid when key in ignition

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

I took the bcm off to see if anything was fried but before I did that I tried with both of my keys and nothing happened

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing else

Hi cliff

if​ the key light is on when the ignition is on this mean the keys have lost there program and will need to be reprogram, two way to do this call a mobile key service or get the car tow to the shop to have them reprogram the key . this cannot be done by just anybody as some special tools and access to a code database are needed

You don't think it's the bcm?

no more likely to be the program . the key itself or the immu control unit

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Nissan is known for the bcm going out and losing memory of keys

yes i know , you need to get them reprogram if the program will not work scan the car for codes if you get a p1610 lock mode code replace the immu unit around the ignition cylinder

Ok but why get the keys reprogrammed first ? And will I have to get the immu synced with the car at a dealer or can I just put It on ?

you may not have lost both key at the same time , its just that if one key go bad and you try to use it the system will wipe the second key and now no key will work

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

because you may have just lost the program it happens

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

you will have to get the keys program after the unit is replace .
