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.

My Nissan altima key remote worked when you get near the car it unlocks etc, now I have to use the actual key fob to unlock it. We changed the battery so that is not the problem.


Hi,
Sounds like the fob or the car has 'forgotten' the other, meaning you need to 'pair' them again. Check the Owner's Manual for instrutions.

2008 Altima with push button start. Why won't the fob unlock doors?


Insert key into and remove it from ignition more than six times in 10 seconds. When the hazards lights will flash twice insert key into ignition and turn to ACC position.
Then push any button on key fob once, the hazard lights will flash twice. Then open drivers door to END.
Should be all working again.

On my 2006 Nissan Altima the Key fob stopped


Take the fob off the key ring and leave at home. Does it still do funky things? If not - it is the fob and first vote is to replace the battery inside - typically a lithium cell. Or the fob itself. If still acting up with the fob away, pull the fuse for the keyless entry, count to 30 and put back. Another less likely cause is the relay - under the hood - marked Keyless entry. If you need to replace the fob, there are instructions for Nissan on numerous sites including below, I have replaced a 2003 and reprogrammed the car to recognize. 2006 Nissan Altima Keyless Entry Remote Programming Instructions...

where are you, your key, in kitchen, standing near car, or in car or key inserted in the ignition, I will answer , IN KITCHEN.
the operators guide, lost>? it might the first clue.
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/hyundai/hyundai-tiburon-owners-manual/
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./

More than likely the battery is dead or the remote has lost programming.

Keyless entry remote wont progam


It will not unlock the door the first time you push the button. This only registers the key fob ID into the computer. When you press the button on the key fob, press it only once and wait for the hazzard lights to flash twice again. Then open the driver's door. The key fob will not become active until you open the driver's door.

If your hazzard lights do not flash after you press the button on the key fob, there is most likely a problem with the key fob. Either it is not the correct key fob for your vehicle, or the battery is not in correctly or the key fob is defective.

The only other advice I can give you is to have it programmed with a scan tool. This way, the scan tool can verify that the computer in your vehicle is receiving the signal from the key fob.

It can be done either way, but if the "no scanner" way does not work, the rest of the system should be checked for possible problems.

2011 Nissan Altima - trunk will not lock and if you push button on trunk after locking with key fob and it opens up - what's up with that?


My wife is in San Francisco on business right now. She is driving this vehicle as a rental and found out that the trunk can be opened after you have locked the car the hard way. Her luggage and computer was taken from the trunk because of an outer trunk release button that you can access. Nicely done Nissan. Thanks. (sarcasm)

Hazard lights flash by themselves, doors won't stay locked (unlock by themselves) key fob won't work.


I has a similar problem and I just took the battery out of my remote. I think there is a problem/ short in the remote. It's as if the button is being pressed when it is not. I will use my spare one in the mean time. It was driving me crazy becuase I was driving long distance at the time and when I removed the battery it stopped. I hope this works for you!

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.
