How to Program a Nissan Murano Key Fob

by Megan Mattingly-Arthur

The Nissan Murano has been in production since 2003, manufactured by Nissan and released as their first mid-size crossover sports utility vehicle in the U.S. The Nissan Murano includes a convenient keyless entry function that lets you engage the vehicle's power locks from a distance. Take advantage of this useful feature by programming a keyless entry fob to your Murano.

Close all of the doors of your Nissan Murano. Press the "Lock/Unlock" switch on the control panel on the driver's side door to engage the vehicle's power locks.

Insert the key into the Murano's ignition cylinder and quickly remove it; do this six times within a period of 10 seconds. Note that the vehicle's hazard lights will flash if the programming mode has been successfully accessed.

Reinsert the key into the ignition cylinder of your Nissan Murano; turn it to the "Acc" position.

Press the "Lock" button on the keyless entry fob within five seconds to program it to your Nissan Murano. Watch to see if the hazard lights flash; this indicates that the fob has been successfully programmed and is ready to use.

Turn the key to the "Off" ignition position and take it out of the ignition cylinder. Press the unlock button on the driver's side door control panel, then open the door to end the programming process.
