2019 Nissan Pathfinder dashboard

Thanks to the Nissan Intelligent Key, Martinsville and Danville area customers behind the wheel of a Nissan vehicle can use this technology to lock and unlock the doors of your new or certified pre-owned Nissan vehicle with the simple push of a button. The Nissan Intelligent key can also be used to open and close your trunk, as well as to start the engine without ever turning a key in an ignition. This is a great tool to have, but it’s important to understand Nissan Intelligent Key programming to get it set up right so it will work properly. Let’s go over the Nissan Intelligent Key programming instructions to get you on the road in no time.

Nissan Intelligent Key Programming Instructions

  1. The first step to Nissan Intelligent Key programming is to get in the car with the Key, then lock the doors.
  2. Insert the key into the ignition, but don’t start the car. Instead, remove the key. Do this about six times, although it can take up to 10 times. When your car accepts the Intelligent Key, the hazard lights will flash twice.
  3. Now you’re in program mode. Put the key back in the ignition and turn the key to activate. The electronics should turn on but don’t start the car.
  4. Immediately press any button on the Nissan Intelligent Key. This needs to be done quickly to be effective.
  5. Next, you’ll want to test out the Key. Stand a distance away from your Nissan and click the buttons on the Key. If the lights flash or the horn beeps once, the Nissan Intelligent Key has been successfully programmed.
  6. You’ll also want to test it in close proximity. Walk up to your Nissan and open the door. You should be able to do this without having to press any buttons.
