Sorry to come out and ask, but need to find a quick solution if possible....
2013 Frontier died at grocery store (not lights/radio/nothing), got a jump and went to auto store for a battery. Tech noticed a loose/corroded connection (battery good). Disconnected and replaced connection on the positive terminal. Truck fired up and I made it about 50 yards before the anti-theft kicked on and shut down the truck. Nobody open this time of night for me.... and Nissan just forwards me to a local dealership (who is closed till morning).
Does anyone know how to reset the anti-theft? The alarm on the dashboard is flashing.... Thanks for any and all help.

IFF alarm is sounding, then you can put key in driver's side door and unlock twice to shut it off. Not sure about a 'reset'.

Thanks. The alarm is not sounding... just will not crank. When I turn the key to accessory and on I get all the electrical, but nothing when I try to start it. Appreciate the help, though.

In HS auto-tech class I had learned to always disconnect & connect the battery using the negative cable first & last respectively. Similar to connecting jumper cables to create less spark(s) when contacting the battery posts.

Try disconnecting the negative cable for a 'reset' of sorts. I'd go for a solid 15-20 min minimum...then try starting your truck again. Perform the above alarm shutoff procedure if all else fails. Ya just never know.

How did this turn out? Seeking closure for anyone who might find this thread via Google/search/etc...
