2008 Altima car alarm set off when using factory key

Asked by Jan 19, 2018 at 12:38 PM about the 2008 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Got a used 2008 Altima. The key fob came with a
broken “unlock” button that is not operable. So I
figured I would just use the factory key to lock and
unlock. Unfortunatly when I unlock with the key it
sets off the alarm and I have to jump in quickly and
start the car with the push button to stop it. I
changed the fob battery and it still does this. Does
anyone have a solution to this? So far I’m just
leaving it unlocked and removing any valuables
each night.
