How your immobiliser system works on Nissan Frontier
Before describing the different choices available to you, here is a short intro to describe the role and operation of the immobilizer in your Nissan Frontier. This electronic component appeared 30 years ago and aims to prevent the theft of your Nissan Frontier. In fact, thanks to a transponder and an antenna (coil) included in the key, and, a immobilisation control box included in the ECU and a reception antenna on the neiman, your Nissan Frontier will go each time you put the key in the ignition, it controls that the code emitted by your key is in fact the one required by your immobilization box. It is only at this moment, that it will permit you to turn on your car. It is thanks to RFID technology (chip in the key) that this system will work.
The different possibilities to bypass the immobiliser on your Nissan Frontier
Enter the code to turn off the immobiliser
First procedure, your key no longer allows your Nissan Frontier to start, you want to deactivate the immobiliser of your Nissan Frontier, but first of all you should try this technique to start it and take it to a mechanic verify that you can not execute a less significant process to bring back the normal start of your automobile. In fact, with your automobile you should have a spare key (which you should try and which should start your Nissan Frontier), but if you don’t have it you should at least have the “code card”, it contains the start code. Thanks to this code, you will still be able to start your automobile by entering it manually. To do this, turn on the ignition, use your centralized button to enter the digits, several quick presses (example: 2 for digit 2) then a stop of one and a half seconds to validate the digit and resume, repeat the process until you have entered the entire code. This should let you start your Nissan Frontier without having to remove the immobiliser.

Manually remove your immobilizer
