2003 Altima radio stays on after removing keys from ignition

Sometimes when I remove the key from the ignition of my 2003 Altima, the radio stays on for a few seconds. Ranging from 1 to 4 seconds. Sometimes it turns off immediately as it should. This also coincides with automatic headlights that stay on indefinitely. However, the 2 issues may not be related. Not sure if either one is a BCM related issue.

It very well could be the BCM....only way to check it is to have a full featured scan tool, and check out the systems.

Have you tried to turn the wheel far to the left as you try to turn the key? Also try to turn the key backwards in the ignition while holding wheel to the left. If those don't work, maybe try sliding the key in with a little WD-40 as this will lubricate the ribs in the ignition slightly and just insert/remove key slowly and quickly a few times and then try the steps above.

Does the car have a key release button? Sometimes these get stuck with the wheel turned slightly and the ribs of the ignition will not close on the key to allow for operation of the ignition.

Let me know,

Is there a way that I can reprogram a key fob from a 2003 Nissan Altima so that it works on another 2003 Nissan Altima?


yes u can and here is the procedure.
1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard
Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder
each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should 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.


5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side
power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.

Radio will not shut off once key is removed...


radios have two feeds one from the ignition and one permanent live. if this is the case then you will find they have not fitted in correct order or even in some cases not at all on the ignition as it does not realy need it. you will also find if the stereo is brand new that all the cables will be clearly marked with a tag and you will have to disconnect the cable for the connection to the car warnign system.

Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out
