Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

Lost original key

My husband has lost his original key for his 2000 Nissan maxima. The dealer said we have to get a minimum of 2 keys to program. 2 key blanks and programming is about 265.00 plus tax. Can't afford that right now. Someone told us about Not sure I want to use them they are in Califorinia and have a PO Box. Any helpful and more affordable suggestions??? We live in Jacksonville Florida.

Thank You

Go to a different dealer. You can buy any amount of keys, you want. For example 1. Who is to tell you how many keys you have to buy??( I would be pissed if I were you) I would get 1 key and get it programmed. That will save you some money for now. Get more keys later. You will have to reprogram them again, but what you gonna do?? Those keys are about $80 and to program it should not be more than 1/2 hr. ($45?) Those keys are easy to program, not like the I-Keys, that Nissan has now. And as far as the company in California?? never heard of it, but I do know that there are places that make keys with a transponder that will fit your Maxima. They are about 1/2 the cost of a Nissan key + the programing. Good luck.

Lost our key that turns off horn

Ok well Lord knows I have lost a few keys! Let the horn blow away!

Just kidding locate the horn should be in the front grill or fender well. And unplug it for the trip to the Nisson Dealership they should have a master key and will order you a new key if not in stock. And don't forget to plug it back in when you get the new key. Hope this helps. good luck

Lost Smartkey and Insert

If you go to a Nissan dealership, you can have your key reprogrammed. When they reprogram your key, it will render the lost key useless since it was not present while programming.

We have lost the keys to our 1997 Nissan Maxima. We can open the doors but have no keys for them or the ignition.

you can contact the dealer with the Vin number and they should be able to cut a key for a lock smith and he can change out the locks.

Go to the dealer with the vin number and they can make one there and then. They just look up vin number in a book and get a key code.

I have Pontiac Sunfire 2002 lost my original key. What can I do>

To get an original key, my understanding is you have to go to the dealership where they can replicate it using the VIN number from your vehicle.

If there is an alternative, please educate me. Thanks.
