Working Around a Dead Nissan Fob Battery

Before you can run out for replacement parts, you’ll need to get into your car! Your Nissan key fob has a backup key inside the unit, so there’s no need to worry about being stranded in Danville when your battery dies. Just grab your key fob and follow these steps:

  • Flip the key fob over and look for a small release latch.
  • Push the release latch and pull out the emergency key at the bottom of the fob.
  • Unlock doors as usual and look for a key fob port to start the car.
  • If your car has the port, put the fob in the port and tap the brake or clutch as you press the START/STOP button.
  • If your car does not have a port, step on the brake or clutch as you press the key against the START/STOP button.

Now that you’ve figured out how to use your backup key, it’s time to learn how to change a Nissan key battery with our experts!

  • Remove the hidden key from your key fob.
