Looks like the immobilizer has lost the key codes. You don't see the chip -on- the key. It's inside the plastic handle (a wireless detection system). Only solution is a Nissan dealer. You have tried both keys? If so, and neither works, take both and the vehicle to the Nissan dealer and have them reprogram the keys into the immobilizer. I've read of several other owners having the system loose the key codes. Possibly from getting a jump start, possibly from something else.
When an entered key is detected the red light stops flashing.
I don't know of any way to remove the system from the vehicle. If you could it wouldn't be much of a security system, would it? It's tied into the engine ecu.
#2198 of 2771 02 pathfinder losing 2 much oil
Dec 11, 2006 (1:10 pm)
Can some one please help, I have a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder with about 71,xxx miles. It has been losing oil not leaking,
the last couple of oil changes there is no oil on the dip stick. It smokes a little on start up and it's gray, white I guess. The dealership keeps saying there's nothing wrong with it. If someone has the same problem or can help please do.

Your email is not clear. How often are you checking your oil level between oil changes? How often do you change your oil? I think your owner's manual probably suggests checking the oil everytime you fill your truck with fuel. So the oil level is fine everytime you check it, but then all of the sudden the level is way down when you go to change the oil? Seems REALLY odd. But if your truck burns a quart of oil every 2000-3000 miles (would not be terribly unusual for a truck with 71K miles on it), and you are changing your oil every 7500 miles, you could be down 3 quarts by the time your next oil change (but you would be seeing that the oil level on the dipstick is low when you check it...long before your next oil change.

No I change it about every 4000 miles and it's either 2 1/2 quarts low or no oil on the dip stick. I check it about every 600 miles. It starts to get low around 1000 to 1500 miles.

I am still getting the occassional flaring. I am dealing with it by easing off on the accelerator a little. I now have the entire truck shaking like crap. Identical symptom was supposed to be corrected by coils being replaced. I replaced several but not all. I took it to another mechanic and he says the 2 Catalytic converters are shot (Diagnostic codes 420 and 430) and they cost over $800 each plus installation! I also need an O2 sensor x 2 for $140 each. Total estimate is $2,100 Cdn $ plus tax.
When the shaking and rattling happens, which is occassional such as once a week, everything rattles including the steering wheel, rear hatch, etc. Any suggestions now?

This is my second time with this inferior "Bose" top of the line product. Is there anywhere in Houston, Texas to get this products repaired "CORRECTLY". Of course it's holding a CD hostage that I borrowed from someone I'm taking a class with. I'd like to replace this POS without it costing me an "arm and a leg". Help please!!! Thanks.

Some have had luck getting it fixed. Many have not. Check Crutchfield - they have adaptors that will let you have a new head installed that may work a lot better. The adaptor feeds the audio to the "Bose" speaker system, which is non-standard (very low impedance). A new head unit will cost anywhere from $150 to $1000+, depending on what features you want. For example, you can even get a DVD playing unit with fold out screen, GPS, etc.
These guys claim they can fix the CD changer: http://www.carstereohelp.com/strnissan.htm

Thanks. Actually I'm not looking to do the repair work myself; I'm looking for a shop here in Houston, Texas to take it to for someone to repair it. I have no time nor the inclination to want to take my vehicle apart to repair it, as I'm trying to work 3 jobs.

I used the www.carstereohelp.com guys for my 2001 disc changer & was very happy with them. DNY42, it's very easy to remove the changer & these guys even have instructions on their website. They have done so many of these repairs that when I called them & started explaining the problem they cut me off at "2001 Nissan Pathfinder" & finished my sentence. I would worry that taking it to a local shop they will repair it only for it to go bad again... but that's just my 2 cents.

Trust me, I so don't want to take it to a shop, as this is the 2nd time it's broken, but I've never taken a CD changer apart in a vehicle in my life (and am concerned about damaging it). So you're telling me that these people are going to be patient enough with me to talk me though taking this apart or answer any questions that I have if I get stuck doing it? I type for a living; I don't disassemble anything.
