I know people are always wanting to know how to program additional remotes
for the keyless entry/alarm so what follows is the procedure from the Nissan
Service Manual. Enjoy.
For 1998-2002 Maxima, Pathfinder, Sentra, Altima, and Frontier Vehicles 2002 Quest and Xterra Vehicles:
1. Programming Procedure:
A. Get in the vehicle. Close and lock all doors using the driver's power door lock-unlock switch.
B. Insert and remove the ignition key more than 6 times within a 10 second period (at a rate of one insertion/removal cycle per second). The key should be withdrawn from the ignition key cylinder completely each time it is removed.
NOTE : Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process.
C. Turn the ignition key to the "ACC" position. The ignition key should remain in the "ACC" position throughout the remainder of the programming, including programming of additional remote controllers.
D. Press any button on the remote controller one time.
NOTE : Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.
The hazard warning lights will flash twice when this step is accurately completed and programming is successful. For 2000 Quest vehicles, the side marker/tail/license lamps will flash twice when programming is successful.
E. If you are programming only one remote, proceed to step 3A. If programming additional remotes, continue with step 2A, below.

While I've never tried this before, I have gotten numerous thank-you emails saying it worked
on their Nissan
Frontier, Nissan Xterra, Nissan Sentra and Nissan Maxima.
