Cell Phones Can Disable Nissan Keys

May 25, 2007

Cell phones left too close to keys of certain Nissan models can disable the electronic code on the keys, Reuters reports. The problem has occurred in a “very small percentage” of 2007 Nissan Altima and Infiniti G35 sedans. Nissan’s I-Keys use wireless devices to allow the driver to start the car without putting the keys in the ignition. A Nissan spokesperson reported that if the I-Key touches a cell phone, calls to the phone have the potential to alter the electronic code inside the I-Key. The car won’t start and the key cannot be reprogrammed, according to Nissan.Nissan says current owners have been notified and can get new keys from dealers if a problem occurs, reports Reuters.
