1. Take car and fob to dealer.
2. Pay lots of cash.
3. ????
4. Do not profit.

Not me. But curious - what is it you want to program?

I had a look recently, since a local owner wanted to know. No good DIY solution is available as of this writing.Image

You have to use Consult III+ with the immobilizer security card.

We want to know the same thing. We just found that one of the fobs on our recently aquired Leaf doesn't work. Guess I'll have to take a trip back to the dealer.

Have you checked the battery?

Stevens Creek Nissan (N. California) just quoted me $160 for key programming. Do anyone have quotes from other dealerships in the Bay Area?

When I buy a new car, I immediately get extra keys made.
It wasn't a big deal when the fobs just unlocked the doors.
My 2005 Audi can be user programmed and it uses an immoboilizer (sp) system.

When I bought my Leaf, I told them I wanted an extra key made.Told them it was a deal breaker.

The salesman said he would have to check with the sales manager (really??), and the sales manager said sure, why not.
Who wants to blow a deal over a key?

Don't quote me, but I believe the Leaf will only accept 3 fobs programmed at a time.
And yes, you need a consult system to do it.

(why have we not hacked this thing? I have a Nice VAG-COM system for VW, Porsche, Audi)

Like most contracts, agreements, and marriages: you gotta make your deal up front while you still have some leverage :D
