Default Anyone know how to program the remote fob?

I just picked-up a new remote fob for my '02 Altima, after losing my set of keys recently. (Saved over $100 by going through e-bay, versus the stealership.)

I understand I don't have to go to the stealership to program it and can be done by myself. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks in advance for your help...

Found this.....this is how I reprogrammed my keyfobs in my 02 QX4.....




REPROGRAM KEY FOB
QX4, 1997-2004 Q45, I30, I35,1999-2002 G20, FX, G35, M45, Most Nissan Vehicles

The horn chirp can be disable by pressing the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously until the hazard lights flash, and no enable press the lock and unlock until the horn chirp.

To reprogram (enter new ID) key fob (keyless remote controller) follow the steps.

1. Close all doors and lock all doors

2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder more than six times within 10 seconds.
(The hazard warning lamp will then flash.)
NOTE:
Key should be withdrawn from ignition key cylinder completely each time.

NOTE:
Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process. The side
marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is
accurately completed.

3. Insert key on ignition key cylinder and turn ignition key switch to "AAC" position
At this time, the new ID code is entered and original (previous) ID codes are erase.

4. Press any button on the new remote controller once. (The hazard warning lamp will then 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.
The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this
step is accurately completed and programming is successful.

If there is only one remote controller skip step 5.

5. Additional ID code entry
Release the door lock, then lock again with door lock/unlock switch
(In power window main switch)

6. Remove key from ignition

7. Unlock driver side door, open driver side door and then close the door. (END)

NOTE:
If you need to activate more than two additional new remote controllers, repeat
the procedure on step 5 "Additional ID code entry" for each new remote controller.

NOTE:
Entry of maximum four ID codes is allowed and any attempt to enter more will be ignore.

Did not work? Try these steps

Answering from my phone, but I will. I bought my keyfobs from ebay, and these are the instructions that came with it.

Glad it worked.

What is considered a good price on Ebay for these FOBs? I need to purchase 1 for my new ride.

I use this on my keyfob too:
eBay Store - Key Fob Cover: Category 1

eBay Motors: Infiniti Key Fob Cover, QX4, Q45, QX56, M45, G35 (item 280270728695 end time Feb-21-09 09:54:47 PST)

This way, my actual keyfob never gets damaged. Its a protective cover for less than $10.

Sorry to bring this thread back to life.

But can you use any Nissan key fob for example the Sentra or Maxima ? Or does it have to be an Altima fob?
