Question type: General

I have a 1997 Nissan Maxima ignition I lost the
original key and had to put a whole new ignition in
it but the new keys do not work in the door locks or
trunk and it does not and will not disable my
security so now my car won't start how do I disable
it without the original key or a key fob

Do you know if you have a chipped key?

No it does not


Seeing that you don't have a fob try this close the doors and lock them take the key and put it in and out of the ignition approximately six times your hazards will flash twice when it does the flashes turn the key to the on position and then off and then try to start it as far as the doors and trunk goes you will have to replace the tumblers or have the tumblers rekeyed
