We then use our diagnostic programmer to communicate with the ecu / immobiliser. We can now erase old & lost keys out of the security system and program in new ones, so that they are the only keys that will start the vehicle.

NATS (Nissan Anti-theft System)

The Nissan immobiliser systems were introduced in 1995. As soon as you put the ignition on, the Nissan immobiliser system will read the key if the transponder data doesn’t match the stored data in the ECU, the car will not start.

The Nissan Anti Theft System (NATS) was introduced initially around 1995 with a basic immobiliser , which did not use key transponders. This system was known as NATS 1. Subsequently NATS 2 was introduced which uses the transponder technology. Further iterations of the NATS system have been introduced, up to NATS 6.5.

A further development is the introduction of a CAN system that was first introduced on the Micra in 2003. The Micra system comes in two forms – either the Intelligent System or Non-Intelligent system.

CAN SYSTEMS NON-INTELLIGENT SYSTEM

This system uses a key with a combined remote control in the key head.

INTELLIGENT SYSTEM

The intelligent system uses a key fob that has a folding key blade that can be used in emergencies. This system works by proximity detection, i.e. when the driver is within a few feet of the vehicle the door automatically unlocks. To start the vehicle the driver depresses the brake pedal and turns the butterfly ignition without putting the key in the ignition. In emergency situations, the key blade can be used.
