Nissan Key Replacement: What You Need to Know.
Losing or damaging your Nissan car key can be a frustrating experience, but it doesn't have to be a complicated or costly one. Nissan key replacement is a process that can be handled by a professional locksmith on the spot. In this article, we will guide you through the steps of replacing your Nissan key and provide you with some helpful tips to make the process easier.
Types of Nissan Keys:
Before we dive into the replacement process, it's important to know the different types of Nissan keys. Depending on the model and year of your Nissan, you may have one of the following types:
Traditional metal key with no remote functions.
Key fob with remote functions (e.g. lock/unlock, panic button).
Intelligent key fob with push-button start.
Each type of key requires a different replacement process and comes with its own cost. It's essential to identify which key you have before proceeding with the replacement key process.
Replacing a Traditional Metal Key
If you have a traditional metal key with no remote functions, the replacement process is relatively simple and inexpensive. You can get a replacement key made by a locksmith who offers key cutting services. The cost of a replacement metal key is $10 at our shop.
Replacing a Key Fob
If you have a key fob with remote functions, the replacement process is more complicated and requires specialized equipment. You can get a replacement key fob from an automotive locksmith. The cost of a replacement key fob ranges from $50 to $400, depending on the model and year of your Nissan.
When getting a replacement key fob, it's essential to make sure it's programmed to work with your Nissan. Most locksmiths have the necessary equipment to program your key fob, but it's always best to confirm beforehand.
Replacing an Intelligent Key Fob
If you have an intelligent key fob with push-button start, the replacement process is even more complicated. Intelligent key fobs have a chip that communicates with the car's computer system, and a replacement key needs to be programmed to work with the specific vehicle.
Getting a replacement intelligent key fob requires visiting a specialized automotive locksmith. The cost of a replacement intelligent key fob can range from $200 to $600, depending on the model and year of your Nissan.
Tips for Nissan Key Replacement
Here are some tips to make the Nissan key replacement process easier:
Have a spare key made: It's always a good idea to have a spare key in case you lose or damage your primary key.
Keep a record of your key code: Nissan vehicles have a key code that corresponds to the unique key that came with the car. Keeping a record of this code can make it easier to get a replacement key if needed.
Check your warranty: Some Nissan models come with a warranty that covers key replacement. Check your owner's manual or contact your Nissan dealership to see if your car is covered.
Be wary of third-party sellers: When buying a replacement key online, make sure to buy from a reputable seller to avoid purchasing a fake or non-programmable key.
Replacing a Nissan key can be a complicated process, but with the right information and a little bit of planning, it doesn't have to be a stressful one. Whether you have a traditional metal key or an intelligent key fob, there are plenty of options for getting a replacement key made. Remember to keep a spare key and key code on hand and be cautious when purchasing replacement keys online. With these tips, you'll be back on the road in no time!
