Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello do you still require assistance with this?i have read through the case notes and it does appear that a key symbol on the dash indicates a imobilizer fault. does the key still unlock the car remotely
Ok, so we can rule out the keys, and is the yellow/orange key light still on the dash, does the engine turn over at all or nothing.
Its definitly looking like an immobiliser issue, 9 times out of ten it is a problem with the ECU, especially if it just happened out the blue, another thing to check would be that the key hole / ignition is not damaged in anyway, as they have a sensor inside them this can also fail but most of the time its the ECU,
It is a computer that controls the car electronics, it will be under the dashboard somewhere, its a ver complex piece of equipment, i would recconmend a garage / main dealer to assist further as they have the special laptops/ software to talk to the computer .
thats no problem, i would advise them to check the ignition barrel aswell as like mentioned above it can sometimes be the sensor, this would be alot cheaper to fix too so always worth getting that checked
Ok, thats great, i hope you get sorted and running again very soon,please feel free to leave feedback / review as it helps other members of the site too thanks again! from Marc
