My normal key (for an 06) is black. The valet key is gray.Titanic9 said:I bought it used with only 2500 miles, from a dealer. Original owner traded it on an '08 since the '07 didn't "match his boat" - must be nice.
They sold the truck to the original owner, but I don't think they got everything back from the guy. I guess I'm missing 1 normal key and a key fob too (even though I don't use those things).
I wonder if this is grounds for them getting me another key for free...wish I woulda known it at purchase time...
The normal key has a silver Nissan emblem, the valet key has a blacked out Nissan emblem - right?
Do you have an XE? I don't know on the later models but my 04 XE does not have a chip so I got charged $20 for a spare. I know it works, I've had to use it.Gator Nation said:I need to make a backup key for my 2004 Titan but the Nissan dealer tells me its going to cost $125 due to the computer chip. Does anyone have any suggestions about a cheaper way to do this?? Thanks!!
My key was $15 plus $40 for programming.rjterpstra said:I recently inquired with my dealer about the cost of buying a third "normal" key to keep as a back-up spare. He quoted me $14.30. That doesn't seem to jive with the much higher cost others have posted. I'll post again (and with a part number if possible) if $14.30 is for real.
The keys are cheap, it's the programming where they get you.rjterpstra said:I recently inquired with my dealer about the cost of buying a third "normal" key to keep as a back-up spare.

Yeah they have it especially if you have an LE.Krodad said:HUH? My dealer told me when I bought the truck that these don't have chips...mine is an 06 LE...is this for sure that they do?
My expedition was the same way.Titanic9 said:I HATE not being able to copy these keys. I don't know why they do this. My truck came with 1 "normal" key and 1 "valet" key. The normal key works everything, the valet key will just do the doors and ignition, not glovebox, bedside storage, etc. Is this what everybody else got?
Who besides Nissan does this? (I haven't purchased a vehicle in awhile, maybe everybody does these days?)
What I usually do is just take the normal key to a locksmith and have them make a few copies, I figure at least I can use these to get in to retrieve the normal key if I lock the keys in the truck. Valet key stays at home for emergency loss of normal key, etc.
