98 remote fob gone dead - bobby mobile
The batteries went dead in my remote fob but now i have changed the battries it does not work. i have a 1998 micra and the fob is a siemens 5wk4 600. Its an oval shaped unit with a red lock button and a black unlock button. My spare unit works just fine.

Sounds like you need to reprogramme the fob.

Doing a google, I came across these instructions, which are meant for a 97 Primera, but a Micra is also mentioned as well.


Please report back to confirm whether it worked or not.

If its just the batteries that have been changed then I would not expect problems. Are you sure you have put the battery in properly and the contacts are clean?

On the Nissans it is the car unit that is programmed to accept the remote control code, rather than vice versa. The remote unit itself is not programmed by this procedure.

The procedure given in the link above *does work* (its come out of the Nissan factory manual), but as I said, its to programme the car unit rather than the remote.

Give it a try anyway - its just possible that the remote's code somehow changed during the battery change operation (not sure how that would happen though)....

It's worked i have no idea how changing batteries could cause the lost of coding. Thanks dave for your googling i tried before i posted but had no luck.

Glad the process worked - I have a 2003 Primera and the same process works - assume the key fob lost the sequence - sometimes happens, sometimes doesn't, when replacing batteries. Handy though, as you can get OEM replacement fobs for a fraction of nissan prices - just need to reprogramme all the keys/fob remotes (not of course the immobiliser transponder chip in the key)

I got a key fob off ebay for a 99 Almera. Following these instructions...

The Central Door locking is controlled by the Multi-Remote Control system which controls
the door locking, door super locking and hazard reminder. When the doors are locked and
unlocked the unit flashes the hazard lights once for lock and twice for unlock.
A maximum of four remote controls are allowed to be programmed.
Ensure all the doors have been unlocked, either by using a good transponder key or remote
control plip key.
1. Turn the ignition switch from Position 0 to ON 6 times within 10 seconds.
2. Then turn ignition switch to OFF position. Leave key in ignition switch.
3. After 2 seconds, the system will enter programming mode and will flash the warning
lights twice.
4. Press and HOLD the unlock button on the Plip.
5. While pressing the unlock button, press the lock button 3 times.
6. Release the unlock button.
7. The warning lights will flash once to indicate successful programming.
8. Repeat procedure 4 to 7 for up to 4 plip key?s.
9. When completed turn ignition ON, and the warning lights will flash 2 times.
10. Remove key, and check all plip key?s for operation.
NOTE : The programming mode will stop when either the ignition is switch ON, 4 plip keys
have been programmed or no input signal either from the switch or plip keys has been received
for 120 seconds."

...I was able to get the key fob to open and lock the doors, however it will not start the engine, the little alarm light just flashes, NATS thing I think. Is there any way of me getting the chip in the key fob to work? Any advice appreciated, thanks

Also if you disconnect the car's battery, even just for a few seconds, you may well have to re-program. That is my experience on my '99 Primera anyway.
