Nissan Chip Keys
Programming the chip in the key to your vehicle helps reduce car thefts. This is why losing a key to your car requires towing your Nissan to the nearest dealership or hiring a locksmith near you that can make car keys.
The transponder chip system for 2000 – 2010 Nissan Models had minor changes (fixed pin code versus rotating pin code).
