That did not work, BUT THIS DID. Donít give up and try different things.

I have a 2011 SL Versa Hatch cvt.

I am not exactly sure how or why it worked but what I do know for sure is; I locked the door with the electronic door lock before starting, I inserted the key in and out a bunch, I pushed the ignition switch in and out a bunch without the key, I again inserted the key several times, I never turned the ignition switch, I pushed the fod button several times before unlocking the car door, the only time the hazard lights flashed on is when I pushed the fod buttons.

After following instructions to the T upteen times, three, different days for over a Ĺ hour each, even without the hazard lights coming on I completed the instructions, it did not work. One time I disconnected the car battery for 10 minutes before trying. I did notice sometimes the green key light comes on. Thatís from when you push the ignition switch in without the key, or push it in with the key, but the key does not go into the hole, hence pushing the ignition button/slot in. I have a big slot for the key, but only a small hole the key fits in making it difficult to put the key in and out rapidly.

Anyway, my hazard lights never flashed nor did the inside lights come on. I followed the above instructions and after getting frustrated, I thought one more time of trying anything. I never got out of the car but I donít remember if I had unlocked the door and opened it to reclose it and lock it, because I had done that several times before to no avail, but you may try that.

Hereís what I did do. I put the key in and out around a dozen times. Then I pushed the ignition switch in and out (without the key so the green key light came on and off) about 10 times. Then I pushed the key in and out a few more times, not sure if it was 3 or 10. I never did turn the ignition to the ACC position. I pushed a button on the fod, then pushed it again and low and behold, the doors locked and unlocked. I think maybe the hazard lights did flash when the fod started working, but never before that. I immediately pushed the button on the other pod and it started working. I unlocked the car with the door button and tried the fod again and it still worked. SO I really donít know what combination worked, but I think pushing the ignition switch in and out without the key had something to do with it. I also think that unlocking the car with the door lock, stops the programming. Iím thinking that when I was testing the fob before unlocking the door at the door, that the hazard flashed on each time I pushed a fod button.

Sorry for the unknown counts and vagueness of parts of this. I really was not expecting this to work, because this time I was not following instructions, just pushing things out of aggravation, lol, and it was nothing like I had read anywhere. But I think pushing the ignition switch in without the key several, maybe 10 times, has something to do with it. Maybe thatís all you need to do, or itís in combination with inserting the key in and out multiple times, before or after or both as in my case. Unfortunately, the Nissan dealers I called just wanted me to bring it in and charge $135 just to diagnose, smh.

These instructions worked on my 2012 Versa S Hatchback. Purchased a 3-button remote (28268-ZT03A) from Amazon. Only thing I did was pause for half a second between each open/close cycle. Vehicle does NOT have a fuse in the Smartkey slot underneath the hood but did have the black box receiver to the left of the glovebox. It did have electric locks from the factory, just no remotes when I bought it.

Any news from the dealerships about whether they'll swap up the key fob and do the programming for us and how much it would cost? If the finance looks about right, I don't see why we can't pay them a little to get it done properly. And if they aren't able to do the programming for us, then well, they jolly well better figure out how they're going to get it done since they're supposed to be the right authority on it right?

I'm going to repost it here to spread this solution a little more

Ok, so here I have the solution (hopefully final solution) to anyone looking to add a keyfob to their versas.

First of all, this solution works IF:

1) You checked under your glovebox and you in fact have the keyless receiver (part 28595X, should be the same in all versas) and BCM (you should have this anyway...part number 284B1/2-9EG0A)
2) You can't get the car to go into programming mode, no matter how hard you try...

Your solution is go to the dealership and have them manually change the entry for the Keyless Entry in the BCM, using the CONSULT III tool. This is confirmed and you can check the specs here, at BL-68 and here at BCS-18

Your car initial configuration, BEFORE changing the entry should look like this, first row you can see the KEYLESS ENTRY is set to WITHOUT:



AFTER changing the entry using the CONSULT III tool, your configuration should look like this, first row you can see the KEYLESS ENTRY is set to WITH:



Dealership will likely charge you to hook the car up to the computer (mine was 70ish $) BUT I think it's worth it since your car is already set up to pair with a keyfob, and I would say it's better to use the OEM configuration rather than installing an aftermarket kit from China (where you pay for the kit, you may need assistance and you don't how exactly how reliable it might be).
This is my opinion only, it's up to you but I'd go always go with OEM if the car is already good for it.

After these steps are performed you are good to go and you only need to do the procedure...you know...close doors, lock it from the inside etc etc

I bought a three buttons keyfob from eBay...works like a charm.
