Well bugger me !

I must have "kicked a Chinaman", or or some one is really workingmy VooDoo dol overtime.

2001 Nissan Patrol GU 11 4.2TD
Dropped my keys the other day, and now I am getting very poor reception from my keyless entry remote, basically only at 1-2.

Thought it was a dead or dying battery, but even with a new battery access via the remote is rather limited, and most times disen't work ... ie keys are quicker.

Pulled apart and tried fine tuning the pots, to get a little distance, and as I said 1-2 mts is all I can get..

Ok so I am up for a new remote, but what type ?

Will a "Rolling code" remote, work ?
Can I get a $50 Generic, and tune it in ?
Do I go genuine, and if so has anyone got a rough price.
Does it have to be tuned ?

What do I have to look for ?

Cheers
Bucky

hi bucky
did your remote land in water or loose dirt if so dry it with heat from a hair dryer but not too close up while apart

clean all the remote internals with a cotton bud stick and metho
then make sure the battery you put in has more than 3volts as i have found a lot of batterys off the shelf despite the date on packet being ok they are flat or nearly flat at time of purchase ,i have been caught out by this
make sure the battery and or retainer clips and or conections are actually making good contact and the battery or battery's fit firmly in place as i have found through the jolt of landing on the ground etc sometimes contacts can be bent away etc

cant help with alternative remote types in relation to your question but no doubt someone else will
hope this is of help
cheers barry

hi bucky
forgot to say that while you have remote in pieces if you can get to the circuitry board clean it with metho as well both sides metho does'nt hurt electronic circuitry and drys to a vapour in a short time it's alcohol based
i recently cleaned the washing machine circ /board after it malfunctioned and its now going like a new one

Hi Bucky. Don't you have a spare - my '99 Patrol came with 2 keys. Is it possible you stuck it a drawer somewhere and forgotten it?

A mate of mine used to run an electronics repair business. He had a bucket of metho on hand to throw remotes, etc into when they had been for a swim. Fixed virtually all of them. My dad tried this method with a cordless phone he dropped in the sink. Worked perfectly after the meths had evaporated away.

Had a look at Roothy's latest DVD today. A Nissan stuck in Bamaga waiting for a two grand ferry trip to Cairns because of the key.

This thread has made me dig out an old Nissan fob the wife left in her jeans and put through the wash about 2 years ago that we thought was dead. Took it apart, gave it a squirt with some electronics cleaner, replaced the battery and BAM, it works.

Many thanks for reminding me about it! Hope you get yours working :)

Cheers,

Jason.

Guy's
Great ideas coming thru
keep up the good work.


I am not a rocket scientist, but the other thing I have noticed is that as soon as the key is out the immobilizer is armed.

Makes me wonder if the remote door access is not actually not on the same electrical loop.

Can anyone confirm or deny that viscious rumor ?

Remember 2001 GU2

Check out Ebay. There are usually a few up for grabs there. You can reprogram them yourself. I'm pretty sure a Pathy remote will work too.

Reprograming Nissan Patrol remote from memory.

Hop in the vehicle. Lock the doors using the ''manual'' locking button next to the door handle (the little rocking switch with the red patch on it.)

Push the key into the ignition and remove 6 times in a row and after the 6th the doors should unlock. Then push any button on the remote.

That should do it.

Sometimes you need to do it a couple of times to get the timing right. You need to be smooth and consistant when you do it and the key needs to be completely removed each time.

Sorry......try this from eHOW

Step
1
Driver's Power Lock

Get in the driver seat and close all the doors. Lock all the doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch.
Step
2

Insert the key into the ignition and remove it from ignition six times or more within 10 seconds. Make sure you remove it from the ignition cylinder fully each time. *If you remove it too fast, the system will not enter the programming mode.
The hazard lamps will begin to flash if you followed the procedure correctly.
Step
3

Once the system enters the programming mode, insert the key into the ignition cylinder once again and turn to the ON position without starting the car.
Step
4

Within 5 seconds, push any button only once on the remote transmitter. Your hazard lamps should flash. If you push the button more than once, the procedure will not work.
Step
5

If you are programming more than one remote, including the old ones, unlock then lock all the doors again using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push any button on the next remote. Hazard lamps will flash.

A far better cleaner for electrics is Isopropyl Alcohol.
It is an inert cleaner and will not harm anything
I Use it a lot on computers
