Customer Question
Cannot find Security System bypass...
Cannot find Security System bypass Relay Button, or "Valet Button" on my Nissan Frontier SE V6 2000. Truck won't start. Have had this problem off & on for years. Normally, unlocking & relocking truck resets it. Where is Relay Button? ThankYou

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

Please do not provide your personal contact number in the question. If you would like a phone call, you would need to request a Premium Service Call.

Based on some of your description it sounds like you have a after market alarm in the truck. Do you know if you do or not?

Customer reply replied 25 days ago
I don't know. How would I find it? ThankYou
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

You would need to look under the drivers side dash for any after market wiring. If you see zip ties, that is after market. Just follow the wiring till you find the After Market alarm control unit. If you find it. Most of the time if you unplug it, it will disable the after market alarm. You want to unplug it's one main big plug.

Give me a min, getting you a image..

Not an aftermarket. Apparently, looking for Stock?
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Not finding any kind of splice. No modifications. Confirmed. It is Stock blocks.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

Does the engine turn over and not start? What is it doing exactly?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Engine not turning over. Have lights & power. Have new Battery. Just barely a year old.
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Exact same problem with Security System fail each time. This time Security System Light not coming on.
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Where would Relay Button be, original system?
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Hello?
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
I have been charged money. But, not receiving answer to issue. Are you still there?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

The factory alarm is integrated into the car. It doesn't not have a valet switch.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Then, how do you bypass it?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

If you try to disable the factory alarm, the car will not start since it's all integrated. So I am trying to get additional information from you to see if I can offer direction on what we can do to get the car started.

Since it's integrated, it can not be by passed.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

If the factory alarm was your issue, normally it would be going off where the head lights would flash and horn would sound if active.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

If the remote is not turning off the factory alarm, if you take the mechanical key and lock and unlock the drivers door that also can turn off the factory alarm

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
The Alarm has never ever gone off. It is just locking me out
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

Locking you out in what way? What is it doing exactly?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
As previously mentioned, I have repeatedly unlocked & relocked truck. There has to be some kind of bypass. This is ridiculous!
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Just not starting
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

Is the engine turning over and not starting? is there no response from the engine?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

There is no by pass. I know you think that. But if there is a by pass, then there is a after market alarm. That description is what made me think you have a after market alarm.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

The locking and unlocking could simply have been a coincidence to get it started.

Do you hear any clicking type noise when you try to start it? single click?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
No clicking. Not aftermarket. When Ignition is fully engaged, the A/C Fan Moto initially blows, then turns off. Lights stay on. Is there anything I can unplug?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

Does the starter engage?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

I am trying to get a idea on what the engine is doing when you try to start it. Whether it's turning over and not starting. Whether you turn the key and nothing happens, Do you hear rapid clicking when you try to start it? Single Click when you try to start it .. no no sound at all..

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
No Starter does not engage. Starter doesn't click, doesn't chatter. Solenoid does not engage. When Ignition turned, nothing happens. I know from past experience, it is the Security System locking me out. Need an immediate solution. Freezing cold. Mechanic not available, due to Easter. Desperately need truck for work. Need some kind of working solution now.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

Try putting the truck in drive and hold the key in the crank position and slowly move the shifter into neutral and see if the truck starts..

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Unfortunately, the truck is now on a tow truck, which is about to cost me $150+. I'm not happy about this, at all.
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
I feel that I spent $22, plus an hour & a half getting no good answers. Very displeased.
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
I want a refund
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 25 days ago

I am sorry you are not pleased. But since I am not there, I can not see what it's doing. I have been trying to get information to help you and have been taking a while to get that information since you think it's alarm related.

I will put you in for a refund.
