2004 Nissan Maxima Key Fob Programming Instructions
IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the transmitters you will be using on the vehicle. Once you program the transmitter, all previous codes will be erased from the memory. The other transmitters will not be functional until you program the transmitters again.
Close and lock all doors with the driver's side power lock/unlock switch.
Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.
Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.
Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.
If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition,
unlock doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.
You will probably need to drill out the center of the ignition lock cylinder to remove it without the key. Start with a small bit and make sure you drill straight into it and then use a little bit bigger drill bit. Keep doing that until you can turn the key lock cylinder and you'll be able to remove it.
this is how most nissans program the key fobs.
get in the car and manually lock the drivers door with the door switch.
put the key in and out of the ignition about 10 or 12 times until the hazard lights flash once.
turn the key to the ignition setting so all the dash lights are on,but do not start the car.
click the lock button on the remote fob.the hazards should flash once to confirm.
turn off ignition and remove the key.
unlock the drivers door and open the door.
the remote should now work.
if that does not work,the dealer can reprogram the fob with the obd diagnostic system.
