nissan transponder key programming

The Nissan Transponder Car Key

The Nissan transponder key was introduced in 1995 and comes with different functions. The transponder chip inside the key is a passive RFID which means that it does not need batteries or recharging.

The car key operates by receiving and responding to radio waves from your car and its ignition.

Your Nissan transponder key can:

  • Lock and unlock the doors and boot of your Nissan.
  • Activate and deactivate the alarm of your Nissan.
  • Start your Nissan’s engine.

However, transponder keys can’t start a car without a working immobilizer system fitted in the vehicle, which has a receiver for the radio waves from the key.

The immobilizer system comes with at least one antenna. This transmitter emits radio waves to activate or deactivate the immobilizer system’s receiver.

remote keys vs transponder keys

No more remote controller is necessary for this function because the signal from the key starts the engine of your Nissan by igniting fuel and ignition in your car.

The immobilizer system is like an electronic lock that works together with your transponder key to prevent thieves from stealing your car.

What Are The Benefits of Using a Transponder Key?

  • Your transponder key is more secure than the typical metal car key because it uses radio waves to communicate with your Nissan.
  • One of its primary functions is to lock and unlock your Nissan.
  • The system operates at a frequency of 434 MHz-434.99999 MHz, which means it can’t be hacked or duplicated by an amateur car key maker.
  • In case you lose your transponder key, the radio waves from a traditional metal key cannot communicate with your Nissan’s immobilizer system so that no one can start your car without the transponder key.
  • Another benefit of using this type of key is greater security against car thieves. Because most people would prefer to buy a regular metal key if they lose their Nissan transponder key, there is less chance that your vehicle can be stolen.

What are the signs of a bad ignition switch?

Your car may be showing signs of a faulty ignition switch if you have any of the following problems:

  1. The car won’t start – The car cranks over but doesn’t start.
  2. The headlights or interior lights come on by themselves – Your friends may joke about you being a vampire, but if your headlights or interior lights turn off and on randomly, it’s not funny at all.
  3. Your key fob is having problems – If your key fob remote entry system is malfunctioning, it’s easy to tell because the buttons won’t respond when you press them.
  4. The key is hard to remove from the ignition – The teeth of your key may be getting worn down. If you have a hard time removing the key from your ignition, it’s time for a new one.
  5. The key gets stuck in the ignition and won’t turn – If you attempt to turn your car’s ignition and it seems like something is jamming the key, don’t worry. Our locksmiths can fix that too!
  6. Your vehicle is making weird noises – There are plenty of strange sounds your car may make when there are problems with the ignition circuit. If your car is making a click or pop sound when you shut off the car, it may be due to a faulty ignition switch.
