Nissan Pathfinder lost keys
Mile High Locksmith is an expert automotive locksmith company. We can make, copy and program keys for Nissan Pathfinders as well as repair any ignition problems you may have. Please read below about information we have shared about Nissan Pathfinder keys and locks.
- If your Nissan Pathfinder was made in the years 1987, 1988,1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, or 1998, then your SUV requires just a regular key without any chip or special features, or what we like to call just an old fashioned key. These keys are very easy to copy and replace in case you have lost your key. If you just need to copy these keys, you can take them to many hardware stores or a locksmith store. If you have lost the key, a locksmith will be able to make you a new key, either by your SUV VIN number or key code.
- If your Nissan Pathfinder was made in the years 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, or 2006, then your SUV requires a transponder chip key. If you need to make a duplicate key or replace the key if you lost it, you can have this key made by your neighborhood Nissan dealership or a locksmith company. The difference we find between the two is the cost, (usually the dealership has the best price), and the type of service. A locksmith will be able to come to you, whereas a dealership will ask you to tow your Nissan Pathfinder in. What we always recommend you to do is call around for the best price.
- If your Nissan Pathfinder was made in the years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, or 2012, then your SUV will require a Nissan Smart key. This key will have to be cut and programmed to your SUV. For more information, please read above.
Programing Nissan Pathfinder keys
If your Nissan Pathfinder was made between 1998 and 2012, then your key will need to be programmed to your SUV. We usually find that the Nissan dealership has great prices for programming these keys, and are the best deal if you need a key copy.
If you lost your key, the best deal is to have a locksmith come to you and have them program the key at your location.
Nissan Pathfinder key won’t turn
Many cars, trucks and SUV’s have this problem in common. Your key gets worn out sometimes and won’t come out of the ignition or turn the ignition anymore. Another reason this can happen is that one of the parts in the ignition cylinder gets stuck. The best deal will be to call a locksmith and have him make you a new key by your SUV VIN number or key code. If that does not fix the problem, most likely you will need to have your ignition cylinder rekeyed.
