This is typically a situation that requires reprogramming the key which is done at the dealer. Generally, inserting the key in the slot below to the left of the steering wheel will do this, however this does not always work and sometimes a reprogramming of the key to the vehicle is necessary and this can only be done at the dealer. I would suggest taking this to your nearest Nissan dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the car.
