Question about 1994 Nissan Maxima
1999 Nissan Maxima alarm won't let the car start. I purchased this car from the police impound. I had to have a transponder key made. It still won’t let the car start. The alarm light does not blink but will come on once you turn the key to start it. The driver's side lock has been messed with and therefore I can’t lock it but I can open it. The passengers’ side works fine. I also purchased a FOB or keyless remote to see if it will disarm the anti theft alarm. But it will not program. The anti theft fuse box by the engine compartment does not seem to have a fuse and/or wiring for the anti theft. Where else can I find the anti theft fuse area or relay on my vehicle? Is there a way to bypass the anti theft alarm?
There is a chip inside your car key
some times gets damage or the car computer gets damage and no longer recognize your key chip
this causes the anti theft system to prevent the fuel injectors to open and the engine will not start because has no gas.
the security light stain on is your hint of what is going on.
I had the same problem on a 99 Nissan Maxima but i got the car running again what you need to do is replace the engine computer and then call a locksmith to reprogram your key to be recognize by the new computer i when to a lot of pain and suffer to get this solve.
before changing any thing make sure the plastic part of the key is not broken, if it is call your locksmith to make you a new one before changing any thing.
NOTE do not use a computer from a salvage yard unless you get to see the actual car it came from
if it came from a car than has the body in one piece do not buy it
its real hard to diagnose this problem and
chances are it came there because of the same problem you have.
if the car looks like it was in a crash the computer is more likely to be good.
but its always best to get it rebuild or brand new if you can.
after you change the computer call the locksmith to get you car key reprogram.
Do not use a computer from a 98 or 2000 because they will not work no mater what the salvage yard tells you they are to make money not to help you so it has to be 99 only.

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan Maxima alarm system
Hey, I bought my 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE brand new back in July 1994 with factory installed alarm, it just doen't make any sound when you arm or disarm it with remote. The only way you can tell whether it is armed or disarmed is from the lever position of your doors and the blinking red light under the dash. Only the newer versions of Nissan/Infiniti's has the "Audio/Silent" mode button on the remote which allows you to activate/deactivate you car alarm with an audiable sound or no sound at all. No worry, there is nothing wrong with your remote or car alarm.

SOURCE: transponder chip in key fob
This will all depend upon what country you are in, and if the vehicle even has the need for the chip to be programmed at all.
When you put a proper key in the ignition, is there a antitheft logo that cycles with the other indicators?
VW antitheft indicator in the USA often looks like a car with a key under it
In the USA, thought the keys have a MEGAMOS RFID chip, no system was active until 2000, and on some models, not until 2002
A system requires a VIRGIN chip. Once the chip is programmed to a car, the chip is locked to that car. Some new software can unlock and refresh some chips, but not 100%
I had a client come in TODAY with a 2003 Passat, and an EBAY flip key.... I wasted a half hour programming time..... but I carry the lower half of remote, which hold the blade and the chip, so was able to fix client up, when EBAY failed.
If this was helpful, please post a nice review for City Lock in Boulder Colorado listings on Google Maps, Yahoo etc. This listing will link you to my website as well. On my website are resources for finding a legitimate locksmith near you. Be sure you are hiring a REAL locksmith!
