New Key


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Don't know about Oz but here in Portugal I can get a locksmith to cut and code a new key to my GU Patrol for less money.

There's two ways to do it, one is to make a clone of one original key, they use aftermarket keys and id chips from Silca or Valeo.

The other is to use a aftermarket device that adds the new id chip to the ECU and BCM module of the Patrol (like Nissan dealers do with Consult II service tool). You should be able to find a locksmith with the proper gear near you to do the job. Nissan dealers charge a leg and an arm to do this job in Portugal (and anywhere in the world!).

Cheers,

Edu

ah ... keys. My replacement cost almost $500. Had to order the blank from Nissan ($300) and the locksmith had the car for an afternoon (3 different blanks to make sure they cut it right and then code it). I have a plain blank cut just in case of a lockout. good luck gts.

There are three ways to do this. All quite expensive, but some less than others.

  1. Buy a Nissan chipped key and get Nissan to program it to the ECU
  2. Buy a chipped key off eBay (some work some don't) and get Nissan to program it to the ECU
  3. Buy a key with a programmable chip from locksmith, no need to be programmed as it will mimic the original chip code

500$ :o . A few months ago I asked my locksmith how much for a clone key (no remote) and I think he quoted 40 or 50 €...

If buying from ebay you'll need a key with white chip, there's other colours for other models of Nissan, this is for GU II.

Keys from locksmith are clones from original key, but my locksmith also has a tool from Silca that can add, delete keys for several car brands ECU including Patrol. You need to take all keys and program all in one go.

I am unsure why the locksmith cant do it.. I needed to replace my spare set about a year ago.. One of the locksmiths in a Westfield Shopping centre did it... Unfortunately I dont remember which one, just that it was way cheaper than Nisssan quoted me... Still overpriced but cheaper. So I suppose there will be locksmiths around that will do it.

Keep looking, I finally bit the bullet and got one done by a mister minit for $100. Not all of them do it though.

I've also got a plain blank key that I take when I goto the beach ect and this just lets me into the car but won't start it. After having a scare and losing my key temporailly I got the proper chipped one done, didn't want to lose it for real and have to fork out for Nissan to reprogram and the cost of towing it to them too.
