I tried to call you back a second time after you sent the picture, but no-one was there?

In order for your fob to dissapear into the slot like that the fob base plate / ejector had to come apart if the WHOLE FOB was inserted. Its a sealed box as you can see from my pictures and its very easy to remove.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

May be easier in your current situation to just remove the FOB slot unit like in the email I sent and remove the FOB from there. worst case scenario you can take the box apart and try to fix the spring/base plate to prevent having to pay $120 for a new slot module from the dealer.

If the cluster was telling you "no key" prior to inserting it in the slot, generally all that means is the key needs a new battery cr2032. Inserting the FOB is a bypass for the dead FOB but needs to go in logo first.

I am happy to call again a 3rd time if you want. Just reply here when your ready by the phone.

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!
