#1385 of 2122 Re: Keyless Entry-Oldie but a goodie [canadianguy1]
Oct 05, 2005 (7:33 am)
Bought my frontier in June 2005 and asked about the keyless entry at that time and the dealer said that the FOBS would not work on my truck. Since then I took the truck to another Nissan dealer and they told me that all that was necessary was to purchase the FOB and program the system, and that everything was on the truck to perform this function. I called Nissan USA to confirm that the receiver was actually installed and on agent said that my truck was suppose to have the fobs included. I then called the dealer from where I purchased the truck and still got the same old story that the FOBS would not work. I then called the other dealer who at the time had my truck in for service, and asked them to go and look at the truck to see if the receiver was actually installed an to call me back. Ten minutes later they called and told me that the system was installed and would function with the FOBS. So I then called Nissan USA and spoke to a different agent and was told that yes the system is installed but no FOBS were furnished because the truck was an early Model 2005 (man. date 11/18/04).
I had tried the Key trick on an earlier day and didn't get the flashing hazard lights.
Will purchase a FOB and see if it will program.
I will keep everyone informed and may need some guidance.

Hey guys, brought my 05 CC Frontier to the dealer to see if they could find out what the clink noise was. They said they re-torqued the left front differential bolt.. Still makes the noise. I'm thinking of bringing it to my own mechanic just to see if he finds something. Otherwise truck is running fine...6500 kilometres.

Thanks. I will give it a try. i am just waiting for the key fobs to arrive from my e bay seller.
I also tried taking this up with my dealership, and they seem to be giving me a bit of a run around. Every other dealer in my area has told me that this would work, but they seem to always hedge on an answer.
The best that they have been able to do is e mail Nissan Canada, with a tech question on the issue. I am still waiting to hear from them on this.
I actually called Nissan Canada, and asked them myself, but they seem to be pretty reluctant to say anything about it. All that they would say is that "...adding electronics to a system that does not come with that option, would not be recommended by Nissan.".
I suggested that all of the electronics were already there, and in my opinion, programming a key fob does not constitue adding electronics, but all I got was the same line I have quoted above.
For whatever reason, (probably because I specifically asked the sales person about the key fobs, and she said that they did come with the vehicle...), I feel that the dealership should provide me with a couple of fobs if this works, but I am having a hard time pinning them down on this.
I get the feeling they are going to hide behind Nissan on this one, but atleast there is e-bay and this forum to help me out.

Hey I was looking at getting the extang trifecta. Its basically a soft cover that folds in 3 sections. I was checking it out at one of the local shops and the vinyl cover and rubber seals look pretty sturdy. I had the a pace edwards roll-top cover on my other truck. Excellent cover, only thing, it takes about 9inches from the front of your truck bed (for the cannister-where cover rolls into). 9 inches isn't bad when you have a full length bed. Also, I'm not sure on how it would work with the Util-trac system.

I cannot find a width for the 05 Frontier with standard mirrors. Any new owners have a measuring tape?

I have it in mine and wouldn't live with out it.
I think the receiver you have to buy is way too expensive so I am trying to find an alternative for my altima but have had no luck yet.
I have seen the unit on the internet for about $375 but still that is more than what it should cost. I chose sirius because the programing is way better and seems better organized.
Hope this helps! If you do go back let me know what they charge you
#1392 of 2122 2005 Frontier V6 4.0 Engine Noise
Oct 06, 2005 (6:18 am)
Have been experiencing a engine noise that sound just like a Valve lifter have had the truck at the dealer for the past three days. they are telling me that they can't fine the problem. They even went so far as to tell me that it is normal. They took a new truck off the lot and it has the same noise.
This noise come from the left front cylinder and is a definite metal to metal tap. It starts making this noise after the trucks engine has warmed up and the oil has had time to thin out some.
Do any of you or have any of you experienced the same thing?
