Keyless Entry FOB Question

I drive a 2011 HB 1.8S and I was wondering if the keyless fob from the SL will work on my car and I can just buy it from the dealership. Or would it be cheaper to buy an aftermarket one from ebay or something?

You mean the Intelligent Key? That might need a conversion to keyless start. I also have a 1.8s with "keyless entry", no keyless start.

Yeah, just the keyless entry. Can I just program an intelligent key to my car?

You'd need to "convert" your car to use intelligent key. In my Rogue, you don't need to plug the key in to start, it's just a start switch. I don't know if Nissan can do the conversion, but you can ask. I don't know the cost either.....

It's not just swapping keyfobs.

My car doesn't even have a keyfob right now. All they gave me when I bought the car was the actual key. It's a pain to keep having to unlock doors from the doors and not through a button. I'll probably go to the dealership and ask about it.

Yeah I know :/ I'm surprised I didn't get one. I have power everything, just no key fob. Haha I thought only the SL had it.

Sometimes dealers hang onto the extra key or fob for a while...

Well they gave me the 2 keys, and he didnt say anything about keeping the fob. I've had my car for about a little under a year and a half now.

Almost had a similar problem last Jan when I bought my 2011 used. Sales droid only gave my wife and I one key and one fob. I said negative. I know our keys have chips in them and no way was I going to leave w/o a 2nd key. I got the 2nd key but not the 2nd fob. No biggie. You can find them on ebay all day long for about $30. MUCH cheaper than buying one from the stealer.

The great thing about programming your own fob is that you can do it w/o owning any fobs. Here are the programming instructions.

https://www.nissanversaforums.com/how...smart-key.html

On my 2008 Grand Caravan, you're SOL if you only have one fob and want to program a 2nd fob. Taking the vehicle to the dealer is the only way you can program in a 2nd fob. Not cheap. Now, if one already owns 2 fobs, only then can one program a 3rd or spare fob. Knowing this, I still only have 2 fobs.

We're lucky with our Versas.
