Ok, since I have been using a lot of great DIY tips from this forum, it is my turn to do a DIY thread.
First of all, this DIY basically just modify the remote board so it can be put inside the nicer Infiniti/Nissan smartkey remote casing. It is a little gettho, but it works.
Ok here is what you need:
-Nissan/Infiniti Smartkey fob. I got mine used of eBay for $23 including shipping. Make sure you buy the one with 4 buttons
, instead of the 3 buttons from FX
-Solder and steady hand
-Double sided tape
1.Open both the old FOB and the smartkey fob carefully. I had a hard time opening the smartkey for the first time, but after the third time, it gets easier. Just try not to break anything. (including your nails like I did)
2.Take the old FOB board learn it and trace the board connection. Here is how I did mine.
3.Mark the position of the smartkey FOB switch to the old board. Precision is very important.
4.Tape the board so it will create an isolator, except for the panic button location. Since the panic button remain at the same place, you have to peal the tape using box cutter carefully. Dont scratch the board.
5.Pull a few copper from inside a wire. Try to get it from a thicker electric wire so you have a thicker copper wire that is easier to shape. Mine is from a 16 gauge automotive wire that you can get it in walmart.
6.Cut the plastic switch (I donít know what to call this) into 4 sections.
