They quoted me $176 to buy a fob plus $80 to program it. I'll post the final total when I buy mine (Dublin Toyota only gave me one). I asked him (at Reed Bros.) if these dealers are selling the extra fobs and he said "No, they always keep one in case they have to reposses the car. Grrrr. :evil:


Hi ed5000. Did you get a new key programmed? What is the final total? I'm from East Bay and leasing Leaf 2012 from Nissan Oakland.
Thank you!

Has anyone purchased/used just the key instead of the combo? I'd really love to just have a plain key with the chip to unlock the door and then do the button-push thing. This would work better when going riding or swimming.

I purchased a 2011 Leaf SV with 2 fobs. I also have a 2010 Nissan Cube Krom that uses the same style of fob. In fact they fobs look the same. Does anyone know if I can use one fob for both cars instead of a fob for each car. That would allow me to carry just one fob instead of two.

I purchased a 2013 used a few weeks back, but it only came with one key. Local dealer quoted me $188 for a key and another $68 to cut and program it, for a total of $256. Instead, I bought a brand new Nissan key on eBay for $68.79, and brought it to the dealer for cutting and programming just now. They ended up charging me $65.58. Grand total: $134.37

Hope this helps. ;)

I just went to a local dealer and they wanted 119 to program and cut a key if I bought them on eBay. Where did you go to have your done?

I have a 2015. I bought a 4 button fob that works also on a sentra on ebay for $65. Programing and cutting the inside key was done by a local locksmith for $85. They need to have all of your keys at that time, and they have to make a phone call to Nissan to get codes so they can enter the computer with their machine. So, for $150 for everything, I think it was worth it. Now I have 3 working fobs and keys. I am not sure if having the key with a chip ALONE will let you push the button to start the car. I also have a plain Nissan key on my keyring for $3.99 at Ace hardware in case I have to get into the car when I don't have the fob...

I'd like to hear an answer on this one as well.

Anybody know?

You can open the car with a key, but you need to have the fob to start it. If the battery in the fob is very low, or dead, you have to touch the fob against the push button before it will start. It's part of the security system for the car. If you could just open the door, push the button and go, Nissan's would be the most stolen car in the country.

The good news is they wouldn't get very far :D

I tested my 2011 physical key. The RFID identification chip is in the fob, not in the physical door key.

Agree a near indestructible physical key with RFID chip embedded in it would have been better.
But they did not design it that way.
