Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: NISSAN Intelligent Key

WARNING

  • Radio waves could adversely affect electric medical equipment. Those who use a pacemaker should contact the electric medical equipment manufacturer for the possible influences before use.
  • The Intelligent Key transmits radio waves when the buttons are pressed.

    The FAA advises the radio waves may affect aircraft navigation and communication systems. Do not operate the Intelligent Key while on an airplane. Make sure the buttons are not operated unintentionally when the unit is stored for a flight.

  • Never leave the Intelligent Key in the vehicle when you leave the vehicle.

The Intelligent Key system can operate all the door locks using the remote control function or pushing the request switch on the vehicle without taking the key out from a pocket or purse. The operating environment and/or conditions may affect the Intelligent Key system operation.

Be sure to read the following before using the Intelligent Key system.

CAUTION

Be sure to carry the Intelligent Key with you when operating the vehicle.

The Intelligent Key is capable of receiving and transmitting radio waves. The Intelligent Key system transmits weak radio waves from various distances. Environmental conditions may interfere with the operation of the Intelligent Key system under the following operating conditions:

  • When operating near a location where strong radio waves are transmitted, such as a TV tower, power station and broadcasting station.
  • When in possession of wireless equipment, such as a cellular telephone, transceiver, or a CB radio.
  • When the Intelligent Key is in contact with or covered by metallic materials.
  • When any type of radio wave remote control is used nearby.
  • When the Intelligent Key is placed near an electric appliance such as a personal computer.
  • When the vehicle is parked near a parking meter.

In such cases, correct the operating conditions before using the Intelligent Key function or use the mechanical key.

Although the life of the battery varies depending on the operating conditions, the battery's life is approximately two years. If the battery is discharged, replace it with a new one.

When the Intelligent Key battery is low, a yellow indicator illuminates with the message "Warning, Key ID Incorrect" in the vehicle information display.

For additional information, refer to "Vehicle information display warnings and indicators" in the "Instruments and controls" section of this manual.

Since the Intelligent Key is capable of receiving radio waves, if the key is left near equipment which transmits strong radio waves, such as signals from a TV and personal computer, the battery life may become shorter.

For additional information, refer to "Battery replacement" in the "Maintenance and do-ityourself" section of this manual.

As many as four Intelligent Keys can be registered and used with one vehicle. For information about the purchase and use of additional Intelligent Keys, it is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer.
