Key fob interference problem 2003 altima

Fob worked well till yesterday. While in a shop, I saw my headlights flash several times--I was no where near the car and no where near the fob. After that the fob will only operate the trunk lift and the horn. It won't lock or unlock doors.

How do I avoid this sabotage in the future?
How to a reprogram the locking feature?

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

Most likely the remote has failed. If you have another remote for the car, try it. All features should work on the spare remote. You will need to get another remote and program it to correct this. Here is a link on how to program it.

the fob has a light. ok , Factory Fob, or aftermarket?

the car came with 2 fobs, new, so do both fail or act odd like this.
id bet not.
and the fob has and LED lamp , if it sticks on , that means'
the FOB is no good, the switches are stuck, ON.
time to buy a new FOB or get McGiver fix yours at x2 new cost.
you can also replace the battery and how that fixes it and or clean
the insides, of fob. at same time
page 1.5 above covers the fob.

the lamp flashes when the button is pressed.
so the button is stuck,, broken./

Replaced battery in crv and now headlights don't work


Check the low beam fuse in the fuse box, usually a 20A. If the fuse is blown/shorted during the replacement of the battery, your lights won't work. Replace the fuse if that's your case. Hope this helps.

Neither key fob for our mazda 6 unlocks the car. A red light flashes on the fob, so I'm not sure it's the battery. Is there some way to reset the system so the fob works?


all you have to do to reset the coding is hold the lock button down for a minute or two till the locks click locked. then test it again by unlocking them. if the button light flashes rapidly then the batt is low, which will affect the distance for use. (do the re-code right next to the vehicle for best results.)

it sounds to me like the only problem you had was the cars battery went low which also manages the power for your FOB to work.if your car has no power then the FOB will not work either.the car has to have power for everything to work like it should.i believe that your problem is fixed by you replacing your car battery.you shouldn't have any more trouble with it.hope this info helps.good luck and take care, manny

Need to program remote keyless entry for 2003 nissan pulsar?


If it is a 2003 model year vehicle follow this procedure. If it doesn't work, you may have the wrong fob which happens all the time.

Sit in vehicle and close all doors.
COMPLETELY insert and remove ignition key more than six times within 10 seconds.
Hazard lights should flash twice.
Turn ignition to ACC position
Press and hold any button on the new key fob hazard lights will flash twice
For a second key fob using the master lock switch, lock and unlock the doors then hold down any button on the second remote until the hazard lamps flash twice.
Then you are done open the door to exit the programming mode.
If the lamps didn't flash when holding down the key fob make sure you have the right key fob, they are different for each car.
