Nissan Key and Lock Systems 

Nissan started using a chip in their keys with the 1999 Nissan Maxima and Pathfinder vehicles.  In 2000, the Nissan Sentra and Nissan Altima starting used the Nissan Anti Theft System on these vehicles. Since about 2001 the the majority of Nissan vehicles are built with a factory fitted immobilizer key and module known as NATS (Nissan Anti Theft System). The key contains a programmed transponder chip in the plastic head of the key.  When the proper and programmed Nissan key is inserted into the ignition and turned to the start position it will send a signal to the immobilizer module  and the car engine will start. If the transponder chip is incorrectly programmed or is missing from the key, it will disable the vehicle from starting.

Nissan Intelligent Key and Push Button Start Ignition

Few latest Nissan cars use the Nissan Intelligent Key proximity fob. This smart key feature is standard on some models, and optional on others. NATS allow the registration of up to 4 keyless entry devices for one vehicle.

Can I get duplicate Nissan keys just anyplace?

No, the 1999 Nissan Maxima keys may be duplicated by cloning the existing key code to a blank cut key. All other Nissans utilize encrypted transponders that can still be cloned, although on-board diagnostic programming is ordinarily a better solution.  When copying a additional Nissan key, the vehicle has to be connected to NATS key programmer. All keys need to be present and re-registered at the same time as each new key needs to be registered.

Where do I get a spare Nissan key?

In the old days you could go to dealer with the VIN number and have them cut a replacement key then go back to the car and start driving again.  Today most Nissan's uses electronic keys that require not only the cutting of the key, but also need the reprogramming of the vehicle computer to sync in with the new key, which means that the car would need to be towed to the dealer plugged into a special Nissan programmer. 

Columbia Lost Car Key is the absolute solution to getting a spare, duplicate or replacement key made that will start your car.  NO TOWING needed if you call us at (573-645-4001).

Lost Nissan keys

If your key is missing or stolen, the vehicle computer must be reprogrammed to accept a new key and block the old one from starting your car.  This programming is called key registration, and is a security measurement that comes from Nissan to make sure that if someone steals your key or is unauthorized to drive or start your car they can't do so after the new key registration process.

If you lose all your NATS keys except for one, you need to contact Columbia Lost Car Key to get an extra one  key duplicated. You should do this  before you lose all your keys, and then you have to tow to the dealer. It is going to be a cheaper solution to have a Automotive Locksmith come out and make you a new key on site.

Nissan Ignition Problems

Switching the ignition on and off thousands of times causes problems with ignition lock cylinders.  There is other issues such as ignition key switch fails to turn, a broken key in ignition, key is freely turning in the cylinder and the car doesn't start, hard to turn the key or maybe the engine won't crank when the security light is blinking on the dash.  These are some of the common issues on Nissan vehicles.  The first thing to do will be to try a spare key (hopefully you have one) to see if the car will start.  If the  key is worn out, bent, or dropped in water or dropped down hard on the floor, using a backup might solve the problem. If the ignition is malfunctioning, it might be repairable by cleaning or replacement of the wafers in the lock. If that doesn't fix the problem the the ignition lock might need to be replaced.
