Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

Key does not come out steering wheel is not locked


if the key will not come out but is turned to the correct position to be removed, then it sounds like it needs an ignition lock cylinder (this cylinder also directly actuates the steering wheel lock

Is there a way that I can reprogram a key fob from a 2003 Nissan Altima so that it works on another 2003 Nissan Altima?


yes u can and here is the procedure.
1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. 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.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. 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.


5. 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).

6. 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.

Nissan presage central locking


make sure the trunk is locked and the ignition is off.
the altima will not lock if the key is in the ignition.
it may think there is a key in the ignition because the switch is bad.

Ignition is locked


The wheel may be locked. Steer with a bit of pressure to either side then try to turn the key - this can easily happens if you park on a slope without parking brake applied. Another thing you may want to try is to shift out of Park then back to it or put it in Neutral. Good luck!

1999 NISSAN ALTIMA KEYLESS REMOTE PROGRAMMING


1999-2003
Enter vehicle, close and lock all doors.
slowly insert and remove key from ignition 6 times within 10 seconds. The tail lamps will flash to indicate original code has been erased. Turn ignition to the ACC position.
Press any button on 1st transmitter.
Hazard lamps will flash to confirm programming.
TO enter additional transmitters, unlock then lock the doors using the power lock switch located on the driver door.
Press any button on additional transmitter (up to 4 tansmitters total possible). Hazard lamps will flash to confirm programming.
open the driver's door.
Turn ignition off.

You must re-program all existing transmitters as this process erases codes from car.
