Question How does the "Immobilizer Anti-Theft System" work?

Can a thief still "hotwire" the car, or does the system complete shut down if anything less than an issued key is used?

I guess it would depend on the thief. The security system on this car is design to deter would be thieves. The key has an electronic chip which is unique and similar to a an electronic pass key. Even if you duplicate the key, it must match the electronic pass code perfectly to allow you to start the car.

It is probably good at deterring complete car theft, but a very poor security system. You can literally break every window in the vehicle and not set off the alarm, if you don't open a door. This means most everything inside and out of the car can be taken, including the wheels. After what happened to my sons SpecV, an after market security system is number one priority on any vehicle.

It dont have a shock sensor?! Damn! i wonder if 2 alarm systems would over do it? =\ how does one incoporate your existing NVIS w/ a 2nd alarm w/out having to disarm two alarms?

Most shops will sell you one that incorporates the Nissan OEM, like the one I have. Or replaces it, Like the one my son has. Either way you only have to disarm ONE. My sons is a two stage radar zone.

On my 2002 Toyota Sequioa Limited which came with the oem alarm security system. The dealer also installed a secondary security alarm system which is incorporated with the oem.

that was the first thing in the car after I bought it... a AUTOPAGE 750LCD system... the absolute best alarm system I have ever had... tells me whats going on, if someone has hit my glass, opened which zone (door, hood, trunk) remote start, indoor temp readings... and if it gets over a certain temp, will start my car until the temp cools down.. and does all of this and will communicate through the lcd remote as long as I am within a 1/4 mile of the car...

No, they can't hotwire the car. The programmed keys must be used.

As an aside note, in the Mazda systems I know if you insert the wrong key and try to start the car, nothing happens. Try it twice... all key programs are removed from the system and the car is dead until it's towed to a dealer and reprogrammed. I'd assume the Nissan system is similar, but I can't say for sure.

So in otherwords, if you have two Altimas, make sure you use the right keys, or have all the keys programmed into both cars!

Can you remote start the car without an electronic key in the ignition?

The Above is true. This happend to my car the day before I first picked it up. The dude the sent to get my car used the wrong key and apparently tried more than once. My car was dead for the evening and I had to pick it up the next day.
