Sorry I'm late with this havnt been aroun for a while.....You said you inserted the key 6 times try seven because it has to be more then six per the instructions.

For 1998-2000 Maxima, Pathfinder, Sentra, Altima, and Frontier Vehicles 2000 Quest and Xterra Vehicles:

1. Programming Procedure:

A. Get in the vehicle. Close and lock all doors using the driver's power door lock-unlock switch.

B. Insert and remove the ignition key more than 6 times within a 10 second period (at a rate of one insertion/removal cycle per second). The key should be withdrawn from the ignition key cylinder completely each time it is removed.

NOTE : Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process.

C. Turn the ignition key to the "ACC" position. The ignition key should remain in the "ACC" position throughout the remainder of the programming, including programming of additional remote controllers.

D. Press any button on the remote controller one time.

NOTE : Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

The hazard warning lights will flash twice when this step is accurately completed and programming is successful. For 2000 Quest vehicles, the side marker/tail/license lamps will flash twice when programming is successful.

E. If you are programming only one remote, proceed to step 3A. If programming additional remotes, continue with step 2A, below.


2. Programming Additional Remote Controllers (Maximum of 4 Remotes):

A. Remain inside the vehicle after programming the first remote.

B. Use the driver's power door lock-unlock switch to unlock and then lock the doors.

C. Press any button on one of the additional remote controllers one time.

NOTE : Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

The hazard warning lights will flash twice when programming is successful. For 2000 Quest vehicles, the side marker/tail/license lamps will flash twice when programming is successful.

If there is more than one additional remote to be programmed, repeat steps 2A through 2C above for each additional remote.


3. End Programming:

A. Remove the key from the ignition.

B. Use the door lock-unlock switch on the driver's door to unlock the doors. Open the driver's door to complete the programming

C. Check the operation of each of the remote controllers by locking/unlocking the doors with each remote controller you have programmed.

This may be a stupid question, but my 2000 Crew Cab did not come with a remote. I would like to get one and program the keyless entry, should I just try to get one from the dealer?

No. Get it off of Ebay or do a search...

I did a search on google to find the OEM part number and then searched on ebay for it. Some of the models are the same for alot of the trucks and suv's. I ended up using my wife's extra one from her 04 xterra and it worked perfect. The instructions above work like a charm also. Later.

I found some remotes for the Xterra on www.courtesyparts.com and it says that if it did not come from the factory with a remote for keyless entry, then it does not support keyless entry?

As long as you have power door locks it'll work. My Frontier didn't come with keyless, but I picked up some remotes off Ebay and they work just fine.

That's what I figured. Is there a certain FCC code I need to use, there seem to be 2, one code for 2000-2001, and another code for 2002-2004. Can I use an 02 remote on my 00 Frontier?

I have been wondering about that exact thing...my '05 Crew Cab SE 4x4 did not come with remotes. I bought it off the lot, and the rookie salesman told me he thought it had remotes, that they were just not on the key ring when I test drove it. Much to my surprise when I went to take delivery of it, there were no remotes to be had! So are you saying I can get a remote and program it, and the receiving hardware is already in the truck? (It has power locks...oh, yeah, and an alarm that is a pain to shut off without a remote!)
