You have to put the key in the key cylinder, turn it to the on position but don't start the car, then count to 5 and then turn off the car and pull out the key for 5 seconds. Do this for a total of 3 times and the system resets. As for getting rid of the immobilizer that will be unlikely due to the fact that it sends info to the ECU to authorize it to turn on the car. However, you can bypass it like I did and then you will be able to use remote start and all the other good stuff. There are 3 types of ways to bypass the immobilizer but it will cost from 30 to 50 bucks.
GREAT news indeed !!!!!!!!!
Are you SURE 100% this works ?
When u you count to 5, do u mean like 5 seconds ?
Does this work ALWAYS ?
Unfortunately, the dealer "re-programmed" ..BS
my key to the car for $90.00 + CAA towing + time wasted + frustration
If this works, we should have a class-action suit to get Nissan to pay up ALL the frustration and time wasted
+ the towing & the diagnose crap they charged me THREE times (in 9 years)
What are the 3 ways to by-pass the immobilizer ?
Thanks man ! I am surprised no one started a thread on this subject
This a a BIG money saviour
By the way, does RE-PROGRAMMING my FOB remote (to lock, unlock the doors, remote-start the car) screws up my immobilizer thingy ?
I heard about insert & remove 6 times ..etc.. WILL this interfere with the immobilizer and cause starting problem ?
THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS!
