Use some Sugru on it It's rubbery in consistency so it won't just snap off when you drop your keys. Use a piece of metal or plastic for the "crossbar" and sugru around it.

When you turn the car off and remove the key, make sure the steering is not turned to one side. If you leave the car with the wheels turned you may load up the steering lock as the steering geometry tries to straighten up. You are able to get round this in the circumstances you describe by 'rocking' the steering wheel to relieve the loading on the lock as ...

I think the easiest way to disable it would be to take the fob apart and put a very small piece of tape on the contacts for the button. This would make it so you could reverse this without too much issue if you decided to sell the car. Most car fobs (at least like the one you show in the link) will split in two to replace the battery. This also gives you ...

The cover should come off (for replacing the battery and whatnot), then you can drill a hole wherever you like with the electronics in full view.

There is a difference between an "OEM" new never programmed FOB and on that has already been linked to a vehicle. That being said there is hope if you have gotten one off EBay that was used. The directions to program the ability to start the car work fine on either the OEM or the used FOB but the smart key (SKS) functions will not program with the ...

According to this source it's possible to program door lock/unlock with a $35 "blank" remote. The immobiliser part of it is unfortunately a bit more high tech (like you would hope). All you need to do is a set sequence with the ignition and remote to reprogram it. I'm not sure if the model's of the fit remote they are talking about and your 2011 are ...

According to this website: There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Try a locksmith before the dealership, they are usually 50% the cost. You'll have to purchase a replacement key/fob (or two) and then take it somewhere to have it ...

I just experienced the same deal. However, the fix didn't entail any sort of weird mechanical voodoo. I just changed the battery on the key fob. The symptoms were the following: (1) was able to control door locks remotely, (2) the key hole would emit weird clicking sounds, (3) the status on the console read "Key Error". I called my trusted Volvo mechanic ...

Just remembered that I hadn't posted an answer to this and thought I would just in case someone else has a similar situation. I ended up taking off the ignition cylinder myself (was easier than I thought). Turns out that the ignition cylinder had a a metal rod inside of it that is supposed to turn when you turn the key but it was broken so instead of ...

It appears your only choice if you want to do it yourself is to purchase the Consult III plus, which will do the job on all Nissan, Infinity, and GTR vehicles. This is not a cheap option, but if you need to do it for several, the cost investment may be overcome very quickly.
