2006 Nissan Altima: How to Cut keys and Program remotes

This is how to decode & cut a key and program or add a new key to Nissan Altima year 2006.

If you have all remotes available:

Here, you must have all remotes on hand when performing this procedure. Any remotes not used during this procedure will become inactive.

Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock switch located on drivers door panel.
Insert key into ignition (DON’T TURN) and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least 6 times within 10 seconds (this will need to be done at approximately one second intervals). You may need to insert and remove the key up to 10 or 12 times until your hazard lamps flash. PLEASE NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast or too slow the system will not enter programming mode.
Insert key into ignition and turn to the ACC position.
Within 5 seconds, push the LOCK button on the keyless remote. Your hazard lamps will flash. PLEASE NOTE: Do not press the button on the remote more than one time or the programming will not be successful.
If there are any remaining remotes (including working ones), Unlock then Lock all doors using the switch on drivers door panel. Within 5 seconds of locking and unlocking doors press LOCK button on the next remote. Your hazard lamps will flash. Repeat this step for each remote (including any working remotes).
When all remotes have been programmed turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door. Test all remotes.

If you have a decent key only or lose all keys:

You need:

a Nissan NSPC001 pin code reader

a decent auto programming tool for the car: Nissan Consult 3 or Consult 3 plus

a security immobilizer card used to make keys to Nissan

a good automatic key cutter, such as SEC-E9 Key Cutting Machine

and good new keys/remotes to add

The steps:

read pin – program key – decode and cut keys

in detail…

Step 1: NSPC001 reads pin codes

Connect the code reader into the OBD diagnostic socket

Read the 5-digit BCM code and transfer it to 4-digit pin code

Write down the pin code

Disconnect the pin code reader

Step 2: Nissan consult iii Plus adds new keys

Connect Consult III plus to the computer and the vehicle

Connection method: via the USB cable or Bluetooth

Insert key into the key hole, turn ignition ON with engine OFF

Start Consult-III plus software

Click on “Connect” button on VIMI selection screen to connect with VI

Nissan ECU Reprogramming: Which tool? How to do?

What’s the difference of ECU Programming and Reprogramming?

Ecu programming is programming of ecu. It can be new or used ecu. But the word reprogramming is when a key or ecu has been already programmed but the after a while It stopped working so you need to reprogram again. It normally happens to Mercedes keys. If you program after a while

It stops working so you need to reprogram or program a new one

Ecu programming is programming of either used or new ecu

We can still reprogram ecu if after a while the ecu program fails

(Credits to Carl)

How to determine whether a reprogramming event is needed for a particular vehicle?

Using the service information websites, locate an applicable TSB for your incident.  Select NERS J2534 ECU programming, then select the “Reprogramming” tab, Search for TSB to find a TSB that has been published about the incident.  The TSB will provide applicable reprogramming instructions.

How to choose a decent auto diagnostic tool to reprogram Nissan?

Nissan ecu programming is easy.

Some can be done by most tools like Launch. But CONSULT is the best.

Programming or reprogramming of control modules can be accomplished by using one of the following methods:

For reprogramming, Nissan ECU Reprogramming Software (NERS) is the SAE J2534 complaint software. NERS Supports ECM and TCM reprogramming. NERS must be used in conjunction with a validated SAE J2534 compliant pass-through device.
A Nissan CONSULT can be used for reprogramming model year 1999 and newer Nissan and Infiniti vehicles.  The Nissan CONSULT II and III are no longer available for purchase, but users may still purchase reprogramming files designed specifically for use with this equipment.
CONSULT II supports reprogramming on 1999 through 2006 model year vehicles.
CONSULT III supports reprogramming on most 2003 through 2009 model year vehicles.
CONSULT III Plus supports ECM reprogramming on most 1999 model year and later and some TCM and ABS/VDC reprogramming.
Nissan Consult 3 Plus supports blank ECM and TCM programming. September 2013 Nissan and Infiniti began the phase-in of “blank” service part ECMs and TCMs. Depending on the model and model year, replacement modules come without software. When the replacement module is installed in an applicable vehicle for any reason, it will need to be programmed.

How to reprogram an ECU with a Consult 3 Plus:

This is a Nissan Consult 3 Plus confirmed to work for ECU reprogramming

Tips: (might be helpful for you)

you need to edit the file DiagnoticTool.ini to enable reprogramming and also IMMO. Or if you have money to waste buy the reprogramming card and the NATS card. Add the following line to the DiagnosticTool.ini file


also make sure system management access_mode is set to 1. That should give you full access. That’s not to say that it will work if you do not have the correct calibration file in the reprogramming folder on the C drive.

Good luck.

Alliance VI

Et Le VI2 outil évident

tout cela est le meilleur de travailler avec Nissan Consult 3 plus.

d’autres vont également travailler mais peut-être pas aussi bien.

L’allumage sur son pas vu si vous utilisez VCM II

J’utilise Avdi et Ignition ON On ne voit pas trop

Je lis que peu importe quel outil J2534 vous utilisez l’allumage sur son pas vu

Probablement, seulement si utiliser Alliance VI2, mais l’alliance vi est tout à fait un peu plus compliqué à mettre en place

Voici thesetup de VCM II avec Nissan Consult 3+.

Pour ford VCMII

Dans le Diagnostictool.ini mis Ford-VCM-II

Installez le consulter 3 plus

Installez votre Manager VCMII et les pilotes.

Dans passthru 4.04 en reg modifier et renommer NISSAN_VI2 Pour autre chose

changement de nom Bosch Ford-VCM-II à NISSAN_VI2

Redémarrez l’ordinateur et de le tester

Je l’ai testé une fois avec un succès limité.

Pièce jointe: [Diagnostictool.ini]!5kMm2TwI!1m7PLJEx_DM_ll3a1UBWuG4ZviRlSyH80iKvJN0-BLk
