The key fob that comes with your Nissan has many essential functions. It can lock and unlock your car doors in a pinch, and it can even start your car! The key fob is also a convenient size for sticking in your pocket or wallet, making it easy to bring along wherever you go. When you buy your Nissan, you'll learn all about how the key fob works. You will also know that the key fob operates using batteries, which means that the batteries will eventually wear out. When that happens, how can you unlock your car?

The good news is that even if the key fob dies, you can still use the key included to unlock your Nissan. To access the key, you can begin by flipping to the key fob's back. Next, all you need to do is push the small release latch over. This will unlock the emergency key that is hidden in the bottom. Once you have access to the key, you have access to your Nissan! Put the key into the door's lock and turn it. Even though you can't start or operate your car remotely with the traditional key, you can at least get into and out of the vehicle. We recommend replacing the key fob battery at your earliest convenience so that you can enjoy all the functions that your Nissan offers.

Along with accessing your vehicle without a key fob, you can also start and drive your Nissan until you replace the key fob batteries. The process of starting and operating your Nissan without the key fob may vary by model. For some Nissan models with an automatic transmission, you can insert the key fob to the left of the steering wheel and start driving. For Nissan models with a manual transmission, you will probably need to press on the clutch and brake pedal simultaneously while pressing the START/STOP button.

While you can still use your car when the key fob battery dies, there are some warning signs you can look out for that may signal the batteries are wearing out. You can tell the key fob battery is losing its strength if the signal strength is declining. You may also need to click the key fob multiple times to get it to unlock the car. You may also find that the key fob doesn't work consistently.

If any of these issues arise, it's probably time to replace the batteries. Contact us for assistance today.
