Nissan Immobiliser Fault Repair
If you have a problem with your Nissan immobiliser then we can help you. And usually for much less than the dealer will charge.
Simply post us your immobiliser box. Then we will recode the box and post it back to you fully working. Also, if you have lost your Nissan car key (or keys) or just need a replacement key then send us the ignition or door barrel so we can decode the barrel and cut another key from it. (If you have different keys for ignition and door you will have to send us both barrels.)

The Nissan immobiliser systems were introduced in 1995. As soon as you put the ignition on, the Nissan immobiliser system will read the key if the transponder data doesn't match the stored data in the ECU. Thus the car will not start.
The Nissan Anti Theft System (NATS) was introduced initially around 1995 with a basic immobiliser , which did not use key transponders. This system was known as NATS 1. Subsequently NATS 2 was introduced which uses the transponder technology. Further iterations of the NATS system have been introduced, up to NATS 6.5.
A further development is the introduction of a CAN system that was first introduced on the Micra in 2003. The Micra system comes in two forms - either the Intelligent System or Non-Intelligent system.
NATS SECURITY INDICATOR
The security LED is normally mounted in the dashboard area and indicates the status of the system.
This system uses a key with a combined remote control in the key head.
The intelligent system uses a key fob that has a folding key blade that can be used in emergencies.
This system works by proximity detection, i.e. when the driver is within a few feet of the vehicle the door automatically unlocks. To start the vehicle the driver depresses the brake pedal and turns the butterfly ignition without putting the key in the ignition. In emergency situations, the key blade can be used.
If you have been unfortunate enough to lose or have your key stolen from you don't worry we are here to help you. We can replace and remove your old lost/stolen key from your car system and have you back on the road usually within the hour.
The dealer's solution to a lost/stolen key is to change the ECU and provide you with a key which can cost £900. Also you will need to take the car to them. We can replace your key without replacing your ECU. So don't delay, give us a call. Remember we are not a call centre - we dispatch our own car locksmiths.
If you are forward thinking you will always have a spare car key. This will save you money in the future if you lose your car key. We can cut and program a spare key for you. In some cases we don't even need the car, just the key. Give us a call for this service.
