Here are some simple steps to take when your fob isn’t working properly on your Nissan GT-R.

Symptoms

The Nissan GT-R Fob Not Working error message means that the key fob is not responding to commands from the car. This could be due to a defective fob or it could be a faulty radio or radio receiver.

Causes

The FOB is a small plastic part that is usually mounted on the inside of your car. It’s used to lock and unlock your car door. If you’ve had this problem before, it’s probably because the fob isn’t working properly. Here are some common problems that can cause your fob not to work properly:

Battery Not Working Properly – If your battery is dead, then it won’t be able to power up the fob at all. You can check this by taking out the battery and checking if the lights on the fob still work or not.

Faulty Fob – If there is a problem with your fob, then it will not be able to work properly when you try to unlock or lock your car door. To fix this, you will need to replace your fob.

Procedures

Here are some simple steps that you can take to fix your fob on your Nissan GT-R:

Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the cover off of the fob. If it is glued in place, then use a small screwdriver to pry it off. You should be able to see the batteries inside of the fob.

If you cannot see them, then use a toothpick or similar object to try and push them out. Once you have pushed them out, clean out any remaining dirt and debris inside of the fob with a q-tip or other similar object

Check for any corrosion on the battery terminals inside of the fob and if there is any, then remove it before putting everything back together again by cutting off any damaged parts and splicing in new ones.

Reassemble everything back together again by putting all of the pieces back into place and making sure that they are secure.
