Hi,
Some key fobs are coded and if this is so you will need to take it to your Nissan dealer with all details of the vehicle i.e. Log book/title and vin number proof of ownership. There may be a small charge for this.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: In my 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado there is a

That is to show that the alarm system immobilisor is on. Shut everything off, close all the doors,windows etc. Lock the car. Then open the car using the remote handset or key and try to start the engine, if it still does not start , then you may have to take it to the dealer to check and reprogramme the system. BTW, did you disconnect the battery prior to this fault ? this would explain why the system is immobilised. Hope that helps

What does the red car on dashboard mean?


What does your manual say, it will inform you as to the symbol and what a flashing or steady light means etc. Also to be on the safe side it would be in your best interest to also include the make and model of your car for a better answer.

My 2003 subaru imprezza WRX has a red key light on the dashboard which goes off when I insert the key. What is it telling me ? Thanks


I'm guessing it has something to do with a security system and since it's on the dashboard, it's a factory installed security system.

My 1999 Ford Expedition has a red flashing 'security' lamp that appears when the vehicle is parked and the key is not inserted. It's normal to see it.

Have just purchased a 2006 Mazda 6 Atenza and noticed that there is a light on the dashboard that is continually blinking - it is a car with a key symbol in it. I refered to the manual but it is in...


This symbol is normally the car electronic immobiliser symbol and should not be lit once the car is started.

If it keeps on flashing and the electronic immobiliser is installed properly, it will prevent your car from being started.

Flashing symbols means immobiliser code is invalid or uncoded.
Hope the information is useful.

I have a 1994 Nissan Altima that when I turn the key it will not start, it will not turn over or anything. it acts like the battery is completely dead, but i charged the battery and the headlights come on...


Sounds like a security thing. Call a nissan dealer and see how to reset. On GMs you have to put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position and leave it on for 15 min. You could try disconnecting your battery for 15 min.
