What to do when your Nissan key is lost:
- First, make sure you don’t have a spare key. Many times, we put a key somewhere just for this day when we will lose our key and forget about it
- In addition, in case you decided to call an automotive locksmith for Nissan cars, remember to provide the exact year, make and model, e.g. “I lost my 2012 Nissan Altima car keys, I lost my 2009 Nissan Rouge smart key, I lost my 2008 Nissan Maxima laser cut key” etc.
- Furthermore, always ask if the key needs to be programmed, i.e. Lost 2016 Nissan Altima key fob or 2014 Nissan Maxima laser cut key needs to be programmed, while 1998 Nissan Maxima doesn’t.
- In addition, in case you need a new ignition, make sure you tried getting a new key first. Changing the ignition for Nissan cars is more expensive and it will result in a different key for the doors and ignition.
- Moreover, if you decided to call the dealer to get a replacement Nissan key, ask if you can pick up the new key, or should tow the car there.
- In cases where the key won’t turn in the ignition, mention if this is something that just happened the first time or is it an ongoing problem.
- Finally, before calling an automotive locksmith or towing the car to the dealer, make sure you have all the necessary documents, i.e. title, ID, registration and VIN of the car.
