    Posted: 11 Feb 2018 at 11:06am
Hi,

I have inadvertently locked myself out of my Nissan Primera 2.2 cdi. On returning to the car, the key fob wouldn't unlock the doors.

I found the plastic cover on the passenger door handle, removed the plastic cover and managed to open the door. I crawled into the drivers seat, inserted the key in the ignition to start the car, but there was no life in it. No dashboard lights came on.

I had only left the car for a few hours, no lights were left on, so I don't think it's a flat battery.

PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP?

Additional information:

I had parked in a small parking space with insufficient space to get out of the drivers side, so had climbed into the passenger seat to get out of the car inadvertently knocking the hazzard light button. I leant back into the car and pressed the button to switch teh hazzard lights off, shut the door and pressed the keyfob lock as I walked away from the car. I was late and don't remember if it locked it as usual, and now I can't unlock it again wonder if this has somehow confused teh key fob into not working?

I bopught the car second hand and only have the one key. Reading on here it sounds like there might now be some sort of brain problem with the fob which has immobilised the car?

I have had to leave the car, locked but away from home and URGENTLY need advice.

Can anyone please advise? I'm at my whit's end.

Many thanks.

Sounds like a Dead Battery
Although normally when the Battery fails, you will get Dashboard Lights but no Engine Cranking.

Check the Battery Earth Straps.

Do the Hazards still work?
My only other thought is the Ignition Switch. Not aware of this being a common fault though.

Not unlocking with the Buttons on the Key would not stop it from Starting.
The unlocking System is not the same as the Immobiliser.
The Immobiliser is a small chip inside the Key. Any problems with this and you would get a Key (NATS) Error on the Dash.

Hi and welcome to the forumHandshake
 
Not good.
 
Very unusual to have a complete dead battery, you would normally not be able to crank the engine but all accessories and ancillaries should be working, a rapid clicking should be heard from the solenoid. sounds like the main battery leads or somehow you have completely drained it.

Thanks for your replies!
Embarrassed, but I took my partner out to the car with a set of jump leads and found it was indeed a flat battery, and I had, indeed left the bl***y lights on.
Started fine after a few attempts!
Very relieved not an expensive repair job!

Good to hear it was nothing serious.Thumbs Up
