You have to go to the dealer to get a coded key made for the car. Its expensive.

She is going to have to get the ignition replaced. More than likely it will have to be done by Nissan to make sure it works with the whole security thing. She can call a local mechanic to make sure but either way it's going to cost some $. Tell her I said sorry, I know it stinks! Thanks for using FixYa

Changed the battery on 2001 AudiA4, 1.8t, won't start now


So you changed the battery in the key? and this is the problem i suspect that you have lost the chip out of the key when you took the key apart to change the battery ,dont worry its happens to the best of us the phone rings or you get distracted -if you have lost the chip then try the spare key if you do not have one call the dealer and have a spare key and a new chip in your key programmed up-

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.
