The chambers inside the key cylinder are going bad. I had the same problem. I took my key to a ford dealer and they reset the chambers in a new cylinder to fit the key. It is very simple to do yourself. I removed the old one and installed the new one. 20 mins top. All you need is a screwdriver. It will get worse and lock up and then you will not be able to remove the key cylinder yourself. I found buying a $19.00 book on this model really helps. I think it cost me around 100.00 for the new part.

Went to gas station after half hour drive. Went to start wouldn't start. Coding p1610 lock code. Why would it do this after I already drove it. Doesn't make sense to me. 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5


Tech notes This code is usually triggered when a not registered or damaged key is used to start the engine. When the starting operation is carried out five or more times consecutively with the same unregistered key, the system will lock. If the problem occurs try disconnecting the car battery for about 30 minutes and then try starting the engine with a known registered key. If the problem persist you have to have the dealer erase the code and reprogram the keys again.

If problem persist after disconnecting the car battery, try the following:

ESCAPE FROM LOCK MODE
1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
2. Turn ignition switch ON with registered key. (Do not start engine.) Wait 5 seconds.
3. Return the key to OFF position.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 twice (total of three cycles).
5. Start the engine.

The steering wheel lock may be putting pressure on the lock mechanism. Try turning the steering wheel a little either way as you turn the ignition key.
