    Key Fob Problems

    So i just purchased a used 2011 Juke

    The key fob will only occasionally work.

    The console always flashes the key symbol, which is Yellow. The Manual says this indicates that the key is not nearby (green means the battery is low).

    I hold the key up to the push-start button and the car beeps, then allows me to start it. It will then start flashing the yellow key light again while i'm driving letting me know the key isn't nearby.

    I tried replacing the battery just in case with my back up key fob that wasn't programmed, and this didn't fix the issue either. Google isn't turning anything up.

    Any ideas?

    Did you purchase it used from a Nissan dealership? I would take it back to them and tell them whats going on and if its a good dealership they will fix it free of charge if you just bought it.

    I don't know about the light flashing green my battery hasn't run out yet but it sounds like it is low. Was the spare fob an original? You said it wasn't programmed. Did they not give you two with the car? I would take it back to them and see what they say. They should at least diagnose it for free since you just purchased it there.

    This sort of happens to me every few weeks. I'll be driving and the key light will come on, it never stays on too long though. I just ignore it for the most part because my car has never not started.

    Appreciate all the suggestions here. Wanted to let you guys know the issue has indeed been resolved.

    I took it back to the dealership and it was a dead battery issue even though the indicator light on the juke was yellow instead of green. For some reason the Juke wasn't detecting the low battery like it should have, is what the dealership said.

    Turns out my 2nd key fob was completely dead and wouldn't work at all (which is why i thought it wasn't programmed). Replaced the battery in both and all is well.

    Thanks guys!
