Need new key fob

I lost my keys, now I just have my spare and no fob. Can I purchase any off eBay instead of going to the dealer?
I had found easy instructions to pair it, but is it a display something I can do or do I have to go to the dealer?

ok thanks, I will try it tonight.

let me ask this though, if this issue is going on with the 4wd light being on, does that mean the 4wd could actually be engaging? Or is it just acknowledging an issue? I don't want to drive around with 4wd engaged the whole time if so.

Do i have any lift options now ?

I have gotten the itch to lift the pathfinder lately, but a few months ago I had purchased a set of Bilstein shocks for the rear and the KYB struts for the front.

So now that I have a new set of shocks/struts, do I have any options without buying a new set of struts ? I have original springs on too.

2006.

I tried doing this sequence when the 4wd drive light was already on, and I got no codes. Should I do it when the 4wd light is off and the system is acting normal, or does it not matter?

is this the right self-diagnostic ? I tried twice and nothing happened. I got it from another site when I googled 1. Warm up engine. 2. Turn ignition switch “ON†and “OFF†at least twice, and then turn ignition switch “OFFâ€. 3. Move A/T selector lever to “P†position. 4. Turn 4WD shift s...

I installed the new one and same thing happened. I haven’t driven it around the block yet so it may go off, but just curious if I need to reset the ECU or do anything after installing the new relay? Or should it have just gone away?

Is there any way to upload those pictures again? I got a few plugs in but taking the intake off I can’t figure out all the steps. If anyone has the clear pictures I’d appreciate it.
For some reason the first post has all fuzzy pictures.

I did just pull a 420 and 430 catalytic code. I knew that was an issue but would that be the cause of the car shaking and not getting enough hp to get up and go? I got new plugs so I am going to swap out all 6 this weekend to check first. Should I get a new coil pack and try that too? I have 180k mi...

I was just looking at the 301. I am very torn on these things, it seems there are so many of them out there. I don’t know what I need in a scanner. I don’t want to waste money.
Would you still recommend this one, or for the same price range is there anything better?

I swapped the coil pack from cylinder 5 and cylinder 3.

I had the guys clear the codes and Codes came back. Not only did “cylinder 5 misfire “ come back, now “random cylinder misfire†as well !!

Wouldn’t that mean that the coil pack is fine? If so, what do I do now !

The old plug was bad. The center electrode was almost gone. I waited too long. But even after putting in the new plug it came back. I will google on how to test the coil pack. I did not have starting issues so I figured that the coil pack wouldn't be the issue, but im probably wrong. I just took it ...

What section would it be under in the service manual ? I found a couple diagnostics while searching but I don't think I found the right one. Is there an acronym that they use or what would it normally say ?

cyclinder misfire after

I had a cylinder misfire on cylinder 5 so I changed the plug yesterday. Before I had changed the plug, the pathfinder was shaking uncontrollably and very noticeable. The check engine light was on and then started blinking so luckily I was close to home and did not drive long. After I changed the cyl...

Ok so basically it’s normal and just old. I guess I need a new exhaust. Are there any better bolt on kits better than others? I found the BOSAL and Walker kits on Rockauto. Anyone have any thoughts on those two options? I had been leaning toward the Gibson catback, but for literally half the cost....

Hole in muffler - spitting out water ?

After changing the spark plugs today I had noticed a strong exhaust smell and realized I have two holes in my exhaust. One is on a seam just above the muffler. The other is on the back end of the muffler and water was spitting out of the pinhole. Very strange. What could be the reason for the water ...
