Is your fob broke too?

Like I said mine stopped working too. For like 2 weeks I used the fob and then one day I tried the button, and it worked. Never had a problem again.

It's water/cold. Mine dies from time to time too, sometimes for a week, sometimes for 2 minutes. Just try hammering the button different ways to see if anything fixes it.

The fob is fine. it's the button on my door handle that's not working and the button works perfect on the other side so I know it's not the fob, it's the doorhandle.

Can you easily switch the button from the passenger side to the driver side?

This happened to me too. I also found if my phone is in the same pocket it doesn't work at all. Mine quit working for a few weeks and now it seems fine again.

Haven't had any problems here.

I'd check the part, see if getting a new handle or button takes care if it. No idea on how to change it out though.

Default Re: Keyless Entry Button Broke

If you want to troubleshoot this yourself, i would suggest getting your hands on a Factory Service Manual(FSM). I Just skimmed through the 76 pages related to the intelligent key system for just the door request switch. To me it is a simple system that needs two conditions to be met for the door to lock/unlock from the request switch.
  1. The antenna inside the door handle to receive a wireless signal from the key fob
  2. The depression of the request switch on the door handle.

The FSM goes over the steps to troubleshoot it with or without a nissan consult. With the consult it appears a hell of alot easier since it can be used to check both the antenna and door request switch without disassembling the door. Otherwise you are stuck tearing stuff apart and checking for continuity, ground, and voltage with a multimeter. A test light will not do because some of the voltages are 5v instead of 12v. Checking the antenna would require and oscilloscope. It also involves ALOT of tear down on the door to get to the the places to check with the multimeter.

If you are not adept in using the test equipment or taking stuff apart to find the correct test points from vague descriptions in the FSM then leave it to the pro's to trouble shoot it.

If you are comfortable taking the door handles apart then you could swap the passenger and driver side handles. They probably will not bolt up but the electrical connections should be the same. If the problem moves over to the passenger side then it tells you that either the request switch or antenna in the driver's side handle is not working but it does not rule out wiring or if the intelligent key unit under the dash is ok unless the passenger side handle works fine on the drivers side. I have never taken the handle apart so i do not know if the antenna or door request switch are able to be removed from the door handle. I would assume that they are not and the whole door handle would need to be replaced if either were faulty.

The same thing happend to me before I replaced my battery in the fob..The doors wouldnt open if I pressed the button on the handle and the car will not start if fob battery is low, I had to manually start it with the key until I got a new battery. I had to read thru the FSM about 5 times before I figured out what was going on.


If that fails then u gotta break the handle down bro..Good Luck
