I can't find any new info and/or any info before 2011, I have a 2012 Nissan Rogue SV and only have 1 key fob, I need to get 2 more key fobs (best price-place) and program them but getting conflicting info on the programming part, find a key and programmer (what people say) but then recheck part and it is not compatible, not sure if I have to take it to dealer or not
You have a 2012, which is a 1st gen model. The fobs for the 2012 are the same as the 2011 and the 2013.
If you want it done right the first time, then yes it will have to be done at the dealership. There's an anti-theft chip in the key fob that your vehicle has to be programmed to accept, otherwise your engine will be immobilized if it's not done correctly.
"ONLY dealer's can register keys. It requires submitting a pin number from your body control module to nissan corperate to get a nissan anti theft code. Even then it requires a consult II or III scan tool to register the key. And I have seen it done, don't know how but people have bypassed the security system. But the system is hardwired into your engine control module and your body control module."
