    Posted: 01 Sep 2010 at 2:53pm
Hi, Yesterday morning I went to open my car to go to work. Pressed the unlock key but nothing happened. Went and got my second key - but could not get the car to open.
I did previously had a problem with a loose main car battery terminal (after work in Nissaan Garage) and I thought that it was the cause of the problem, but I could not get into the car to check it.
(I remembered something about access thru the passanger door - but manual was in glove box)
After about 15 minutes the main Fob eventually opened the car. I fully expected to have a main car battery problem - that the loose terminal issue had returned. But the car started first time and everthing seemed fine. 
However this morning I had the same problem (but I thought I didn't lock the car last night)
Eventually I got the Key Fob to open the car after about 5 mins, by holding the fob directly over the bonnet.
At lunch hour I checked the Car again. It locked and unlocked from a distance of 15 feet. Anyway I have just purchased a replacement key fob battery and its working from 90 feet distance.
Hopefully the problem was just the fob battery (but its a little strange that the backup key was also not working - or is it)
Anyway I will follow up tomorrow with an update.
Anybody else with similar problems or and ideas?
Keep trying

Thanks Fossyant.
Same problem this morning. Key Fob would not open Car on first few attempts. Cry
But a lot quicker than the last two mornings.
 
Reprograming Keys - Is it easy to reprogram P12 (2004) keys?
I know I did it with my P11. Thought I read it was very difficult with P12 (hopefully thats not the case).
Keep trying

How do Keys get de-programmed?
 
I found this on another tread - presume it will work. Will try it this evening. Thanks
 
You can program a maximum of 4 P12 key fobs as follows:

Obtain all remote controls

Switch ignition ON and OFF 6 times within 10 seconds

After 2 seconds indicators will flash twice. Programming mode will be activated. Proceed as follows:

Press & hold unlock button

Press lock button 3 times

Release unlock button

Indicators will flash once to confirm correct programming

Repeat above procedure to program any remaining remote controls

After fourth key is programmed, indicators flash 3 times to confirm correct programming

Switch ignition ON

Indicators flash twice if 1-3 keys have been programmed

Indicators DO NOT flash if 4 keys have been programmed

Programming mode de-activated

Check operation of all programmed remote controls

Keep trying
