Might be time to replace remote battery. Have you tried that? When they start going bad they dont have as big of a range. Not 100%the that they have replaceable batts i think they recharge in the car dont they? If so have you tried recharging it? Sounds like a key issue to me

Sometimes the Police will use a "Slim-Jim" and help a Citizen. Or call a Locksmith especially if you have Road Service or Autoclub.

My 2009 keyless entry will not start?

Nissan cars with keyless entry will display key on dashboard display if battery of key runs out. Normally it can be resolved by replacing the battery. See video above.

Emergency Start: There is a way to start the car in case of emergency. If you don't have access to new battery then you can start the car by pressing the button with your key FOB. There is a sensor in your key below Nissan logo which should be kept near the Start-Stop button when pressing it. This should work even if there is no battery in the key. You can give it a try.

I need a 1998 mazda 323 ba immobiliser bypass key or another solution to start my car. Can anyone help me?

I know this question is old but I recently encountered a similar problem with my 1995 323 BA and this may help someone else. Override the immobilizer by doing the following:

open the car via the drivers door
put the key in the ignition
turn the key to ACC
now turn the key to ON
repeat the last 2 steps X 12 quickly (ignore the indicators flashing and the central locking activating).
the dashboard should be lighting up as normal.
Now turn the key to START

Me key battery keeps dying on me in 1 months time is this normal

Where do you keep your keys? If you have them in pocket or purse, something may be pushing one of the buttons constantly, thus, draining the battery.
