Is it the Original key?, it is a computer key that if damaged will not work,it could be as simple as just turning the "steering wheel alittle", too, and of course you might need to replace the ingition itsself, but let's start with if the ing. is "sensing", the "computer chip", on the key, if the key is really worn it will do exactly that, try this in "hot weather",when it usually hang's up, have a Fountain soda on hand,or a cup of ice, and place the key (chip) against the side of the drink for a minute or so, and then try it, if it solves the "problem", then you'll have to go to a "locksmith, and (or) dealer, and pay for a new key, and yes, they cost quite a bit, but after all it's supposed to keep unwanted persons from taking your ride,so it worth it, let me know if I can be of more help,god bless happy 4th.

I replaced the ignition lock cylinder on my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder and it will not start due to the anti theft is on. How do i disable it?


I don't think you can disable it.
You'll probably need to get a key cut for the new cylinder using a blank with the same chip the old key uses.
The dealer or a locksmith should be able to cut the right key.

2000 Nissan Pathfinder wont lock into park


Sounds like the tow truck driver broke the lock solenoid or the latch. You may want a shop to take a look and give you an estimate in case you need it in court. You can remove the console trim and look at the lock lever for damage.

My 95 Nissan Pathfinder will not run over when the key is turned on. Out fo the blue, I tried to start and will not. I turned the headlights on to see if there is actually a drain on the elctrical...


THIS KINDA COMMON ON FORGEIN CARS AND TRUCKS , SOMETIMES YOULL HEAR A CLICK AND SOMETIMES NOTHING, THIS SOUNDS LIKE A BAD STARTER, IF YOU GET SOMEONE TO HOLD KEY IN THE CRANK POSTION WHILE YOU TAP STARTER WITH A HAMMER LIGHTLY IT MAY SPIN OVER , BUT THIS DOES SOUND LIKE A DEAD SPOT IN THE STARTER AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, GOOD LUCK.

Program remote


The horn chirp can be disable by pressing the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously until the hazard lights flash, and no enable press the lock and unlock until the horn chirp.
To reprogram (enter new ID) key fob (keyless remote controller) follow the steps.
1. Close all doors and lock all doors
2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder more than six times within 10 seconds. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash.) NOTE: Key should be withdrawn from ignition key cylinder completely each time.
NOTE: Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed.
3. Insert key on ignition key cylinder and turn ignition key switch to "AAC" position At this time, the new ID code is entered and original (previous) ID codes are erase.
4. Press any button on the new remote controller once. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash)
NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed and programming is successful.
If there is only one remote controller skip step 5.
5. Additional ID code entry Release the door lock, then lock again with door lock/unlock switch (In power window main switch)
6. Remove key from ignition
7. Unlock driver side door, open driver side door and then close the door. (END)

I can't turn the ignition key at all. I tried wiggling the steering wheel and still nothing. The wheels were straight when I parked and nothing was wrong. Everything is locked.


if the steering wheel for sure is not locked then it sounds like your ignition lock cylinder is seized up-you will have to replace it

I have a 1994 nissan pathfinder and the ignition locked and my key won.t tun it.


A lot of times you need to rotate the steering wheel a little while trying to turn the key to release the lock. This should then allow you to turn the key in the ignition. Hope this helps.

2002 Nissan pathfinder will turn over but will not start.


There really shouldn't be anything else that needs to be done, unless there was a gear inside the ignition cylinder that wasn't installed in the proper position, this will cause the ignition to only go to a certain spot when turned and it may not be fully engaging the start position, i would re-check the installation of the new ignition assembly.
