Anyone successfully program their own key fob?

i've purchased an australian model one on ebay and the instructions are on the lines of:

insert key and completely withdraw from ignition barrel 6 times within 10 seconds... hazard lights should flash

but the programming sequence doesnt work.

For the record I have a 2003 Nissan 350z Australian delivery and I have successfully programmed a new key fob for the car after sorting out two issues.

1. The original remote I had operated at 315Mz frequency which I was let to believe would work on my car.  After having no success I purchased the 433Mz European version of the key fob and this turned out to be the correct one.

2. There are at least 3 different methods to program 350z key fobs depending on the cars country of delivery eg. USA, UK, Japan.  The one that works for Australian cars is described as Method A in the attached instructions.  Unlike the USA & UK cars the hazard lights do not flash during the programming steps. 

To programme do this -

1. Close both doors.

2. Both doors must be locked using the small rocker switch near the door handle.

3. Insert the key into the ignition 5 times within 10 secs and remove.

4.  Quickly insert the key again and the doors will unlock.

5. Turn the key to the accessories position (not the on position).

6. Quickly lock both doors again using the small rocker switch near the door handle.

7. Press the unlock button on your key fob and both doors should unlock indicating the key fob is programmed.

8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 for additional key fobs.

9. Remove the key from the ignition and all of your key fob should now be programmed and lock/unlock the car.

Note: I did have trouble with the timing of these steps.  I found that unless step 5 & 6 were done quickly the car would not recognise the key fob at step 7.

I hope this helps someone.

    • help!!! my brake squealing like crazy ?? (new brake pad)
      By Newby101 · Posted
      I've got a similar issue.  I've taken off every wheel and checked the pads to make sure they're still 'drive-able' and theyre all fine. However the brakes squeal something cruel when I'm slowing down. They're fine on the first bit of pressure and when the pedal's almost entirely pressed in but in the mid range of the pedal the brakes squeal so very very loud... Has anyone found any fixes or hints as to what it is?

      So this thread didnt go anywhere at all but in case this helps out anyone in the future. The problem can basically be explained as an aftermarket exhaust kit. The sensors didn't like the emissions and intake numbers that they were reading because the exhaust wasn't stock. All I did to it was put a few spacers on the sensors and the light has stayed off since.   Hope this helps

      Hi all, Pleased to say that i have purchased a Grey 2010 370z. Being that it has been my dream car going way back. I cannot be any more satisfied and stoked right now. My first mod, will obviously be getting the windows tints done. After that either wheels or exhaust... How do you guys reckon i should go about it?
