You are describing a couple different issues, First off you should never see smoke come from your ignition. You say you replaced it but if you did and this was after it "smoked" then you may have had more damage than just the ignition. The click you are hearing sounds like the starter trying to engage, but the armature is stuck. Try a light couple of taps with a hammer directly on the starter. If the car starts... then you need to replace the starter. Keep in mind you may have to have someone hold the key in the "start" position while you tap it. Make sure the emergency brake is on and the wheels are chaulked.
So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???
If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.
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.
