1998-2010 Nissan Frontier Car Key Fob and Remote Programming Instructions:


IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the transmitters
you will be using on the vehicle. Once you program Nissan Key to the transmitter, all previous codes will
be erased from the memory. The other transmitters will not be functional until you program
the transmitters again.

1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times
within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step
successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this
procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button
is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors
using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button
on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each
transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the
driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.

Nissan Navara is the name for the D22 and D40 generations of Nissan pickup trucks sold in Asia; in North, Central and South America and the Philippines it is sold as the Nissan Frontier. The line began in 1998, replacing the D21 Nissan Hardbody truck. As of 2002, the D22 series pickup is no longer sold in Japan; the D22’s primary market being North America. It is now built at the Nissan factory in Smyrna, Tennessee.

The D40 Frontier platform is currently being used as a Stage Rally vehicle by the NISMO Stuff Racing effort currently competing in the Coupe Rallye Quebec series. This team has been racing the current D40 Frontier for over two years with eight stage rallies and two hill climbs under its belt having never suffered a mechanical failure of any kind.

For 2011, Nissan Frontier received the highest rating for Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Front, Side, and Roof Strength Evaluations. Also for 2011, Nissan Frontier was an 2011 Top Recommended Compact Truck.
