Nissan Intelligent Key Programming Instructions

  1. The first step to Nissan Intelligent Key programming is to get in the car with the Intelligent Key, then lock the doors.
  2. Insert the key into the ignition, but don’t start the car, then remove the key. Do this about six times, although it can take up to 10 times. When your car accepts the key, the hazard lights will flash twice, which means you’re in program mode.
  3. Put the key back in the ignition and turn the key to activate. The electronics should turn on, but do not start the car.
  4. Immediately press any button on the Nissan Intelligent Key. This needs to be done quickly to be effective.
  5. Next, you’ll want to test out the key. Stand a distance away from your Nissan and click the buttons on the key. If the lights flash or the horn beeps once, the Nissan Intelligent key has been successfully programmed.
  6. You’ll also want to test it in close proximity. Walk up to your Nissan and open the door. You should be able to do this without having to press any buttons.
