First is this the key that opens the door and turns car on? Or just one of the two. There are some locksmiths that can make a key, check ur local yellow pages and if that doesn't work depending on how much the dealer is charging you, might want to consider changing the lock or cylinder which ever is cheaper.

Need one replacement key and remote

You'll find the prices on eBay very reasonable for key blanks & remote units. If you have the transponder key, you'll still save money buying the key elsewhere & having it programmed at your dealer.

I use eBay often & looked this up for you:

Keyless Remote: item # 320484718788 24.99 + 7.48 S&H w/programming instructions.

Ignition Key: Item # 250577989265 9.95 + 4.95 S&H see this one for detailed programming information.

Of course there are many other places to buy the keys & the remotes, I just like the buyer guarantee from PayPal.

good luck.

Replacement valet key

you HAVE to get it from a nissan dealer.the valet key has a tooth cut that is different,so that is does open the trunk or glovebox and there is a lockout switch in the glovebox.
but there is a chip in the key and the car will not start without it.
if you try to start the car a few times without the chip,the car will have to be towed to get the body control module re programmed .

I lost the key for my 2001 nissan altima and made a copy that opens the door but does not start the car

The factory key has a chip in it. Without the chip that communicates with the vehicle, it will not start. You will need to go to the dealer, and get the proper key. They may request your vehicle identification number located in the bottom driver side of the windshield.
