How to Start a Nissan with a Dead Key Fob

2019 Nissan Pathfinder Silver

Picture this: You’re running late for work, and when you go to unlock your Nissan vehicle, nothing happens. If you’re in this predicament, the most likely issue is that your Nissan key fob battery has died and requires replacement. If you need to get driving to Arlington right away, thankfully it’s possible (and easy) to start your vehicle without the key fob. Find out how with Wolfchase Nissan below.

Unlocking Your Nissan

Before anything else, you’ll of course need to unlock your vehicle and get inside. Even when you’re in need of a Nissan key fob replacement, you can still get into your car when you follow these steps:

  1. Flip the key fob over, then push the small release latch.
  2. Pull out the concealed emergency key from the bottom of the fob.
  3. Insert the emergency key into the driver’s side door and unlock it to enter.

It’s that simple! You’re all set to cruise Memphis with your temporary key until you’re able to get a Nissan key fob battery change.

Starting Your Nissan

Now that you’ve gotten into your Nissan, you’ll need to know how to start it. If your vehicle has a key fob port, insert the fob in the port and tap the brake pedal or clutch while pressing the START/STOP button. If your vehicle does not have a port, you’ll need to step on the brake or clutch while pressing the key fob up against the START/STOP button.

How to Perform a Nissan Key Fob Battery Change

When you discover that your Nissan key fob battery is dead, you’ll want to replace it as soon as possible. Here’s how to get the job done:

  1. Pull out the concealed emergency key you used to enter your Nissan.
  2. Remove the key housing, then take out the dead battery – just be sure to note the battery’s position before you remove it.
  3. Replace the old Nissan key fob battery with a new CR2025 battery, ensuring the negative side of the battery is facing upward.
  4. Reassemble the Nissan key fob, then give it a test run to be sure it’s operating properly.
