Infinity No-start after battery disconnect
I do not have a consult II, but am wondering if one of my many other devices might work with a nissan subscription to do the initialization procedure. I have a snap-off modis ultra, bosch ads625, bosch mastertech II, ford vcm II and a cardaq M.
Can anyone tell if I have what I need, or is going to need some other manufacture specific device.
If all you did was disconnect or replace the battery nothing should be needed. Might want to check your fuses.
The early 2000s Nissan products had an issue where low battery voltage would scramble the immobilizer data. You need to reprogram all of the keys before the car will start again. It's not so much disconnecting the battery that's a problem, it's low battery voltage. Customer often describes a slow crank, then they get a jump or whatever and the engine cranks but won't start. Bad design.
You may only have to relearn the NATS. Check your scanner to see if it has this function. Autel scanner will do it.
What was the reason for disconnecting the battery? What job was performed?
I'm not sure if any of your devices will work. I have a Snap-On scanner (about 3 years since purchase and no updates). It doesn't have any immobilizer functionality. I'm imagining the manufacturer-specific scan tool(s) won't work. The Cardaq is just a pass-through device, right? I don't think that will work, even if you get the CONSULT software. I think Nissan is still using a CF card for…
If the car was ok before you disconnected the battery then you should be able to do a relearn. disconnect battery again touch cables together to clear everything, reconnect battery, lock and unlock door with key, turn key on wait 5 seconds turn off wait 5 seconds, repeat key cycle 3 times car should start.
I've never heard of this procedure. Where did you get it?
The car came in on a hook, the customer removed the battery to make another car start and put it back, never ran again. I followed the flowchart for the codes which included the cycling the key process you included. It then says that if this does not correct the issue then you have to do a nats initialization. Thats where I am stuck. I vaguely recall doing something like this with a 03 nissan…
You should be able to just do a C/U initialization in the BCM. You'll need the pin code though which I think is done with a pin calculator with a number of the BCM label. Just Google how to find it plenty of info on it.
I do have the pin, but I am not sure I can enter it with my equipment.
If your Ignition Keys are aftermarket copies they sometimes get delete when the battery is unplugged. if no other keys or an OE key is available you will need to get a replacement key and program it to reset the theft system. An autel will do it.
