Your vehicle can only be driven with the Intelligent Keys which are registered to your vehicle’s Intelligent Key components and NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System components.

Never leave these keys in the vehicle.

As many as 4 Intelligent Keys can be registered and used with one vehicle. The new keys must be registered by a NISSAN dealer prior to use with the Intelligent Key and NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System of your vehicle. Since the registration process requires erasing all memory in the Intelligent Key components when registering new keys, be sure to take all Intelligent Keys that you have to the NISSAN dealer.


Listed below are conditions or occurrences which will damage the Intelligent Key:

If an Intelligent Key is lost or stolen, NISSAN recommends erasing the ID code of that Intelligent Key from the vehicle.

This may prevent the unauthorized use of the Intelligent Key to operate the vehicle.

For information regarding the erasing procedure, contact a NISSAN dealer.
