1998 altima key fob won't lock doors and alarm doesn't work

I have a 1998 Altima GLE. The doors will not lock with the key fob, but the fob will open doors when manually locked. Also the factory installed alarm system no longer blinks or comes on with manual locking of the doors. I have attempted to reset the alarm system (by inserting/removing the key 7x in 10 seconds causing a double flash of hazard lights, and then turning to AC for another double flash) but that did not help. Advice please?

More than likely the battery is dead or the remote has lost programming.

Testimonial: "The battery in the remote is new. My car battery is not very old. I am able to use my car, I just can not lock it with the fob, though I can unlock it when it is manually locked. The alarm is not flashing any longer either. "

SOURCE: hazard lights flash by themselves, doors won't stay locked (unlock by themselves) key fob won't work.

I has a similar problem and I just took the battery out of my remote. I think there is a problem/ short in the remote. It's as if the button is being pressed when it is not. I will use my spare one in the mean time. It was driving me crazy becuase I was driving long distance at the time and when I removed the battery it stopped. I hope this works for you!

2008 Altima with push button start. Why won't the fob unlock doors?


Insert key into and remove it from ignition more than six times in 10 seconds. When the hazards lights will flash twice insert key into ignition and turn to ACC position.
Then push any button on key fob once, the hazard lights will flash twice. Then open drivers door to END.
Should be all working again.

The alarm will sound if the alarm was set before you dropped the key fob. Just put the key in the ignition and start the car, the alarm should turn off.

I changed my car battery, now my 2008 Nissan Altima key fob won't work


There is a special procedure involved in keying your fob to your car once the battery has been changed. You must lock and open the door with your key. Turn the ignition to "on"(not start) then push the fob's open and close button, then shut off ignition. This procedure is done everything the key battery is changed. Hope this can help you!
