I have a 2001 Altima with the chip key and wanted to know how to switch it out with another key and lock cylinder without the security system preventing the car from turning on. I have that option or
maybe a remote start in conjunction with the new key.

Out of luck pal, the immobilizer function is actually carried out by the computer, the computer has to change. Not finding that chip the computer does not switch on the injectors.........

Great logic is on display here. If you as the owner could easily defeat the security system by switching out the key and lock cylinder.....could not a thief do the same and steal the car?
