How to Program an Infiniti Key FOB

by Robert Kohnke

Infiniti is the luxury division of the Japanese auto manufacturer, Nissan. Infiniti has made a variety of two- and four-door sedans and coupes since its founding in 1989. In the early 2000s, Infiniti began equipping some of its vehicles with a automatic lock system that was operated by a remote control; the system was also available as an after-market addition. Programming the key fobs (remotes) is a simple process that takes less than five minutes to complete.

Sit in the driver's seat and close all doors. Lock all of the doors using the power lock switch on the driver's door.

Insert the key in the ignition and remove it from the ignition. Do this at least six times in 10 seconds. The key must be pushed in and removed fully each time. If you have done this step successfully, the hazard lights will flash.

Put the key into the ignition and turn the ignition to the "accessories" setting.

Press any button on the remote within five seconds of putting in the key. If you have done this correctly, the hazard lights will flash again. That remote is now programmed into the system.

Unlock and then lock all doors using the driver's-side lock switch. Press any button on a new remote within five seconds to program that remote in to the system. Repeat this step for every remote, including any existing remotes that were programmed before this procedure.

Turn the ignition to the "Off" position to end the programming mode. Remove the key from the ignition and unlock the doors using the driver's-side power lock button and open the driver's door.

Tip

  • check If you program more remotes in the future, all remotes that you want to use, including existing remotes, must be programmed again. The system only accepts the remotes programmed during the most recent programming.
