Nissan Maxima 2004-2006 Key Programming Procedure



The following are the key programming procedures for Nissan Maxima for the year 2004 and 2006.




1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully.

NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash.


NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.




About Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima has distinct styling, a refined personality, and above-average performance. It’s a car designed for auto enthusiasts who appreciate something different, straddling the line between a mid-size sedan and a near-luxury sport sedan. Something other than, say, a Camry or an Accord. The Maxima is a more specialized product than the Altima midsize sedan, with a daring design that appears strange from certain angles, but we like its quirky looks and innovative design, as well as its performance focus.

Buyers can select between the stiffer SE and the softer SL. In any case, cruising on the highway is a breeze with Nissan’s 265-horsepower V6.

Both models are loaded with high-end features. With supportive, luxurious seats, the refined cabin is innovative and comfortable. The intriguing Skyview roof, which is a standard glass panel running lengthwise over the front and rear seats, is the type of feature typically associated with futuristic concept cars. Another feature seen primarily on futuristic concept cars is the available rear bucket seats. The bucket seats and Skyview roof, when combined, make back-seat passengers feel more like first-class passengers and less like coach-class cattle. Granted, the Maxima isn’t as family-friendly as the Altima, especially with the optional four-bucket interior, but that’s not a deal breaker for those who don’t have children.

Standard safety features include a sophisticated traction control system. For 2006, the navigation system interface has been enhanced, and Bluetooth and satellite radio are now available.

In contrast to the Taurus-trend that hampered Ford Motor Company, Nissan has learned to use round design effectively (even though lots of folks bought those plug-ugly cars). The Maxima’s aggressive stance may be due to the short front and rear overhangs, which flow so softly.

Inside, there are wide front bucket seats that, despite lacking the preferred heavy bolstering along the legs and up the torso, manage to keep you in their grip during tight cornering. Gray suede flowed from behind the dash to the door panels of the test car’s leather package, creating an enveloping effect.

The SE, as tested, has tight suspension tuning that allows it to run flat through tight corners (and I would imagine the softer-tuned SL would not). With this engine and its kick, I’m not sure I’d want anything other than tight tuning, but there are those who prefer power to be a straight-ahead highway experience. I believe they are known as Sunday cruisers. However, there is no reason to dismiss the Maxima as merely a cruiser, despite the fact that it is an excellent example of that type of vehicle.

The SL is probably fine for those looking for a powerful, soft, easy ride up and down a road like Interstate 93. And, with basic interior appointments, comfortable seating, and subtle, quiet power, this is a car that can compete on the open road with any Camry, Accord, or even lower-end Lexus and Acura models.

Consider this: a Maxima with a tight suspension, burbling exhaust pipes, and optional rear bucket seats with a console between them. (OK, there is torque steer you’ll need to get used to.)

The tightness in corners, the sure and firm braking, and the overall feel of driving a sports car are all noticeable. Nissan has pulled it off, although perhaps too subtly.

I doubt anyone would have noticed when I pulled into a parking space if it hadn’t been for the 18-inch chrome wheels that ate up the wheel wells.

However, this car is about much more than the bling of gleaming wheels. Consider that its starting price of $27,750 includes not only side-curtain air bags, but also ABS and traction control.
