I'm a bit confused. Are you saying the key fob (remote on the key chain) does not work? Or just the alarm button on the key fob does not work?
If the entire key fob does not work, you may need to reprogram them, if you are positive the batteries aren't dead. Here's a link that shows how to reprogram Nissan fobs. make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page.

Hi, after re-reading my post it does confuse things a bit; so to make it simpler, yes, the keyfob does not work at all, both of them. I'll check the batteries tonight and if they're good as expected I'll try the reprogram steps.

just to keep you up to date, took the 06 Quest SL in today for thrid oil change at 11K miles. At last oil change we had expressed concern over a slight vibration at 2K rpm under load (uphill...), the tech had told us he could not feel anything. Today, I got to ride with the service writer, he felt the viab immediately, but upon inspection they were unable to find anything loose or amis. the tech is saying 2K rpm is the "harmonic range " of this engine...I dont buy it. Service writer is saying he will try to drive another 06 quest when one comes in and see if he feels it on another car. Has anyone had a similar viabration?
Otherwise, only other issue was the rain gutter trim on the pass side has popped up, they are ordering another piece. We just got back from a 1200 mile trip and are sure glad we have the extra space...how would we have lived with the smaller Hundai? Avg mileg was 25.1 on comp, 24.4 real.
Again, has anyone tried one of those clear plastic type bra shield?

Well I checked the batteries in both keyfobs and one was dead, the other was good; I replaced them both just to be sure, but still could not make the keyfobs work, so I followed the link given by dtownfb (Thank you!) and reprogrammed the keyfobs again; they are working now.

#2187 of 2475 Love my 04 Quest

Bought the 04 in Dec 03 after looking at the Toyo (seriously), Honda (which the dealer quoted 10% OVER sticker), Ford (ok, not really), and Dodge. Got a stripped S with a DVD, paid under $25k. Is it a perfect car? No, but I feel I have great value with it. Yes, I had brake shrudder, but had that with other cars / vans I've had. Doors sometimes squeak, as with every other car I've driven. Clock runs a little fast, but that makes up for my Olds clock, which is equally slow. BOATLOADS of power, fair gas mileage, rides better than any Caddy I've ridden in, LOVE the gauges in the middle (never could see them thru the wheel in any car I've ever driven). I guess I'm saying I didn't expect a Maybach, and I didn't get a '68 VW Microbus. I'm very happy.
I understand some of these posters have legit issues, but some folks must never have driven a 1979 Dodge Omni.

I bought mine 04 Quest a month earlier than you and have 35K miles on it. Today, I took it to Dobbs for brake pads (front) check, they said pads could still last for 3-4 month. Changed 2 tires at 28K miles and 2 tires + rear pads at 31K, our quest has been great and I enjoy driving it everyday. No problem at all so far. The QN engine is really good and powerful. The car is easy to handle and cornering with both independent suspension on both front and rear (only Honday had the same suspension when I purchased it), and more safety features compared with other vans at that time (side curtain, etc).

Okay I need help with my 2005 Quest. I have had a horrible smell in my Quest since last August. I have taken it in to Nissan 7 times. Nissan has sprayed antibacterial spray in it, deep cleaned it, installed new carpet and cleaned the rear air conditioning out since they think it might have leaked in the back. Has anyone else had a problem with the rear part of the van stinking? I have looked for leaks in the rain. You can't even leave anything in the rear compartment b/c it smells like mold just over night. Has anyone else had this problem? My husband wants to sell the van just b/c of the horrible smell, oh course who wants to buy a stinking van. We can't even take anyone in our van b/c of the horrible smell.

No, I have ever heard of such problem of bad smell. Some dead animal in the compartment? Even the emission from the beautiful VQ engine has no such "bad" smell.
Our 2004 Quest has 36000 trouble free miles. Just finished a round trip from St. Louis to New Orleans. Gas mileage was 22.8 MPG with air conditioning on all the time and speed mostly at 80-85 MPH. We really appreciate the handle and stable of the van, especially in the heavy rain road. It handles like a Champ and boost the driver's confidence during the merge and pass other cars/trucks.
BTW, the front brake pads are still the original factory installed. Had it checked in Dobbs and they recommended changing it after the summer.
The 2004 Quest has been a really great car for us so far.

Nope, we have doubled checked for dead animals. It only grows worse when it rains. Off, we go to Nissan again tomorrow since we had another rainstorm this weekend.
