You will find the Intelligent Key port to the left of the steering column. In this situation, inserting the Intelligent Key into the port will allow you to start the engine. Be sure the front side faces up and the key ring end faces towards you. Then follow the normal start procedures. To remove the Intelligent Key from the port you must first push the ignition switch to the LOCK position. The push button ignition switch should never be operated while driving except during emergency situations. If you encounter an emergency while driving and need to turn off the ignition, the emergency engine shut off will work when you rapidly push the push button ignition switch 3 consecutive times or if you push and hold the push button ignition switch for more than 2 seconds. Please refer to your owner's manual for more information on push button ignition switch operations.





2014 Nissan Altima - Intelligent Key® and Locking Functions
Without removing the Intelligent Key from your pocket or purse, you can lock or unlock doors and the trunk, as well as start the engine. To unlock the vehicle, have the Intelligent Key with you and then push this Request Switch on the door handle. That door will unlock. Push the switch again within one minute to unlock all doors. To lock your vehicle, push any door handle's Request Switch once, after all doors have been closed. The Intelligent Key has lockout protection. If the power door lock switch is moved to the lock position with the driver's door open and the Intelligent Key in the vehicle, all doors unlock immediately and a warning chime sounds as soon as the door is closed. These lock and unlock functions are operational when the Intelligent Key is within about 2 ½ feet of the corresponding request switch. To activate the panic alarm, press this button for more than one second. The panic alarm will sound and the headlights will stay on for a period of time. The Intelligent Key can also be used to operate door locks and windows from outside the vehicle, at a distance of up to 33 feet. To lock doors, press the LOCK button. Your hazard warning lights will flash twice, your horn will beep once, and you'll know that all doors are locked. This is the default setting from the factory, but it can be changed if the horn beep is not desired. To change the setting so the horn does not beep: • Push the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for more than 2 seconds and the hazard indicator flashes 3 times. • To return to the horn mode, push the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for more than 2 seconds. The hazard indicator flashes once and the horn beeps once. To unlock the doors, press the UNLOCK button. The hazard warning lights will flash and the driver's door will unlock. Press again within one minute to unlock all doors. All doors will automatically relock within one minute unless you push the ignition switch or open any door. Hold the UNLOCK button for more than 3 seconds after the doors are unlocked to lower the automatic windows. In a rare instance when your Intelligent Key battery is discharged, you can still use the Mechanical Key to lock or unlock the vehicle. You'll find the Mechanical Key concealed on the back of the Intelligent Key. To remove it, release the lock knob on the back of the Intelligent Key and slide the Mechanical Key out. Then insert the Mechanical Key into the key cylinder on the driver's door and turn to lock or unlock the vehicle. As many as four keys can be used with one vehicle, provided the Intelligent Keys are registered with a Nissan dealer prior to use with the Intelligent Key system. The Intelligent Key contains sensitive electrical components. Please avoid these circumstances that could affect its operation. • Avoid dropping or striking it against another object. • Keep away from water. • Keep away from equipment with magnetic fields, including computers, cell phones, TVs and audio accessories, and • Avoid using a key chain that contains a magnet.





2012 NISSAN Altima - Manual Climate Controls
Manual Climate Controls (if so equipped) This is the climate control panel for adjusting air flow, fan speed and temperature inside the cabin. The FAN SPEED CONTROL Dial regulates fan speed at various settings. Turn left for slower speeds, or right for higher speeds. Turn the dial all the way to the left, to turn the system OFF. Press the A/C Button, in the middle of the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Dial, to turn the A/C ON or OFF. Turn the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Dial to the left for cooler, or to the right for warmer air. Use the AIR FLOW CONTROL buttons to select air flow outlets. Refer to the pictograms for the various air flow combinations. • Air will flow from center and side vents, • From center, side and foot vents, • Mainly from foot vents, • From the defroster and foot vents, • Mainly from the defroster vents. For quick cooling when the temperature is high, press the button in the center, marked MAX A/C. Note: in hot or humid conditions, a visible mist may be seen coming from the vents. This does not indicate a malfunction. To defrost or defog front and side windows, press the FRONT WINDOW DEFROST button. The indicator light will illuminate and air flow will be directed to the front and side windows. The A/C automatically activates when you select the Defrost mode and the outside temperature is above 36 degrees. This helps dehumidify the cabin and clear the windshield faster. Now turn the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Dial to a setting that will best meet weather conditions. For windshield deicing, your dial should be turned to maximum heat. Also, using the FAN SPEED CONTROL Dial, turn your fan speed to high. To defrost or defog the rear window and, if so equipped, the outside mirrors; push the REAR WINDOW DEFROSTER switch. The indicator light will illuminate. After defrosting, push to turn OFF. If not turned OFF manually, this feature will automatically deactivate in 15 minutes. To recirculate air inside your vehicle, press this AIR RECIRCULATION button, its indicator will light up. This helps A/C efficiency and helps block outside odors from entering the cabin. You will only be able to activate the air recirculation feature when non-defroster air flow settings are selected. Press again, to turn OFF the recirculation feature and allow fresh air from the outside to be drawn into your vehicle. Please be aware that while in Defrost modes, the Air Recirculation feature will not activate. Allowing outside air to enter the vehicle further improves defogging performance.





2012 NISSAN Altima - Parking Brake and Indicator

2012 NISSAN Altima - Seat Adjustments
Seat Adjustments If your new vehicle is equipped with power adjustable seats, here's how to operate them. To make the seat slide forward or backward, look for this switch on the outer edge of the seat. Slide it forward or backward and the seat will move in that direction. To make the seat recline, move this RECLINE switch backward until you achieve the desired position. To bring it back upright, move the switch forward and lean forward. The seatback will return to the more upright position. If so equipped, the switch you use to move the seat forward and back can also be used as a seat lifter, adjusting the angle and height of the seat cushion. Move the front or rear end of the switch up or down to adjust the angle of the cushion. Then push down, or pull up on the middle of the switch to adjust the height. The lumbar support feature, if so equipped, provides lower back support to the driver. If your driver's seat is equipped with power lumbar support, push the front or back end of this switch to adjust the seat's lumbar area. If your vehicle is equipped with manual front seat adjustments, reach down and find this lever under the front seat. Pull up on it while you slide the seat forward or backward to a desired position. Release the lever to lock the seat in that position. To recline the front seatbacks manually, locate this lever on the outside of the seat base. Pull up, and lean back. To bring the seat back upright, pull the lever and lean forward. If your vehicle is equipped with a manual seat lifter; your seat height can be adjusted using this lever, located on the outside of the seat base. Pull up or push down on the lever to adjust the height of the seat. Release the lever when a comfortable position is achieved. If your driver's seat is equipped with manual lumbar support, you can adjust it by moving this lever up and down.





2012 NISSAN Altima - Trunk Functions
Trunk Functions The TRUNK RELEASE switch is located on the left side of the instrument panel. To open the trunk, push the switch down. The trunk can also be opened by pressing this button on the Intelligent Key. When closing the trunk lid, be sure to push it down securely. As a security feature, your vehicle is equipped with a TRUNK RELEASE CANCEL Switch. You'll find it here, inside the glove box. When you have to leave a key with a parking valet, you can remove the Mechanical key, which is concealed inside your Intelligent Key and keep it with you to protect your belongings. To remove the Mechanical key, release the LOCK knob on the back of your Intelligent Key and pull the key out. Now, push the TRUNK RELEASE CANCEL switch inside the glove box to OFF. Next, using your Mechanical key, lock the glove box and the interior trunk access. Its lock can be found under this cover just above the passenger side rear seat. Then give the Intelligent Key to the valet and keep the Mechanical key with you. Your belongings in the trunk and glove box will now be secure while you are away from the vehicle. When the TRUNK RELEASE CANCEL switch is in the OFF position, the trunk cannot be opened with the Intelligent Key or the TRUNK RELEASE switch.





2012 NISSAN Altima - Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tire pressure. A CHECK TIRE PRESSURE warning message will appear and the TPMS light will illuminate when one or more tires are low on pressure and air is needed.  Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended COLD tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading Information label. After tire pressures are adjusted, drive the vehicle at speeds above 16 miles per hour. The warning and indicator light will disappear. If the low tire pressure warning light flashes for approximately one minute and then remains on, the TPMS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked by a NISSAN dealer. Tire pressure rises and falls depending on the heat caused by the vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. Low outside temperature can lower the temperature of the air inside the tire, which can cause a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate. If the warning light illuminates in low ambient temperature, check the tire pressure in your tires. The Tire and Loading Information label provides important information at a glance. It lists proper tire size and pressure. It also gives the maximum number of occupants for your vehicle, and its maximum load capacity. Please check your Owner's Manual for the location of the Tire and Loading Information label on your vehicle. A final note: The Tire Pressure Monitoring System does not detect a sudden drop in tire pressure as with a tire blowout. And it is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance.





2012 NISSAN Altima - Fuel Functions
Fuel Functions Located in the instrument cluster, this gauge indicates the approximate fuel level in the tank. This light comes on when the fuel level is low. Refuel as soon as practical. You'll see an arrow next to the fuel pump icon that indicates on which side of your vehicle the fuel-filler door is located. Pull this fuel-filler door release, located on the floor to the left of the driver's seat, to open the fuel-filler door. The fuel-filler cap is a ratcheting type. To remove the cap, turn counterclockwise. Hang the cap's tether strap, in the holder on the fuel-filler door, while you are refueling. On Coupe models place the cap in the holder on the fuel-filler door. After fueling, turn the cap clockwise until ratcheting clicks are heard, indicating that it is locked in place. Then close the fuel-filler door securely. Failure to properly tighten the fuel-filler cap may cause the Loose Fuel Cap warning message to appear. If this occurs: ● Exit the vehicle and reinsert the fuel-filler cap straight into the fuel-filler tube. ● Turn the fuel-filler cap clockwise and tighten it until you hear clicks. ● Now, press the RESET button for more than one second to turn the indicator OFF. Failure to properly tighten the fuel-filler cap after the Loose Fuel Cap warning message is displayed may cause the Malfunction Indicator Light to illuminate. If you have taken the appropriate steps and the indicator light does not turn off, please see your Nissan dealer for further assistance.
