Mig29, the I-Key is a proximity keyless system, but you need to push a button on the door handle to unlock the car. This is how it works on my 08 Altima Coupe as well as the 09 Altima's.

Works that way on the Altima sedan as well. You push the button on the handle once to unlock the driver's door, again to unlock them all (just like many remote-entry fobs do).
#368 of 373 Strangeness when idling
Oct 23, 2008 (7:00 am)
Hi I'm having a weird problem with my Nissan Altima '08 Coupe 3.5S.
When idling the car is actually physically shaking, this happens once I've started up the car driven somewhere and stopped at a stoplight. You can't just turn on the car and have this happen.
It also shifts very slowly between gears to the point where on my way to work this morning it actually slipped and didn't shift and I almost got into an accident.
I brought it in to Nissan this morning because the service engine soon light came on, and they said they found a cylinder misfire, but they couldn't find which one and they couldn't reproduce the problem. I find this hard to believe and am very angry and am willing to go to another dealership. The problem is the next closest dealership is highway driving and I don't want to chance that again.
Has anyone experienced my problems, and if so what steps did you or the service person do to fix it? I'm pretty pissed, I only have 6000 miles on this car.

"It also shifts very slowly between gears to the point where on my way to work this morning it actually slipped and didn't shift and I almost got into an accident"
I'm assuming that from your saying "it" didn't shift, you have an automatic. If you do, your transmission does not shift at all--it is, as its name implies, continuously variable--simply stated, a metal belt riding up and down on pulleys between two cones, with the belts riding up and down in small increments which gives a seamless, shiftless drive.
As far as the other part, computer-controlled engines are sometimes very frustrating--the slightest problem with a sensor can cause all kinds of drivability problems--not like in the mechanical old days when a problem presented itself for all the world to see. Good luck!
#370 of 373 new 2.5 S coupe

Just picked up on Thurs. and I really enjoy driving this car. Very quick for a 4 cylinder, comfortable interior. I'm getting used to the light steering. I had a 2006 accord coupe and they really are quite different. Smaller and lighter equals better mileage. I located one with pzev emissions, which was a bit of a challenge, so the car is a nice combo of green and fun. Maybe one of the best available.

my 03 murano needed a new gas cap at about 35000 miles. my new altima's gas cap seems to loosen on its own, sometimes i can tighten it and the light goes off, sometimes i can't and it stays on.
anyone else having issues with nissan gas caps.
the dealer is taking its time replacing the altima's cap.
#372 of 373 hi, quick question
Jun 18, 2009 (10:34 pm)
I bought 08 altima coupe 3.5se recently, a used one.
It runs great and I abs. love it.
however, i noticed one small problem, yet annoying.
Whenever I go on a bumpy road, from my bose stereo (rear right back) I hear this not rattling noise, but lil static, squeaking noise. I dont know how to explain it, but it sounds like a fly buzzing or a rock or a plastic running around inside of my stereo. Thats what it sounds like...
It is really annoying and I want to fix it.
I tried everything, I super glued the bose logo, bc i heard some ppl said it was that
I know it isnt from the rear seat, bc I heard when I put rear seat down..
I really dont wanna go to a dealership, but wanna to fix it by myself.
Anyone has any idea???

Did you ever figure out what that was, because I have the same problem?
