Hi everyone, I saw I really helpful discussion on here about the notorious ESCL failure but now I've joined the forum, I can't find it, of course.... My Jan 2010 Cube just suddenly failed with the key not being recognised by the ignition system (opens doors etc) local Nissan garage diagnosed the Electronic Steering lock failure as the issue but said they couldn't repair since the part was not available in the whole of France(!) - said they'd need to order from Japan (6-8 weeks). I found and ordered one through Nissangenuine.com (£560). These guys seemed genuinely helpful, expedited shipment to France etc. Nissan garage now claiming the part is second hand as they can't get it to recognise the key!? I suspect they don't know what they are doing - but kind of hard to tell them that... Maybe the part is faulty? It's the D part (not suspect A or
. Either way I am a little desperate as we are due to drive home on Sunday (three days time). Does anyone have any helpful advice? Is there someone I can speak to in the UK - Nissan mechanic? Do any of these bypass videos on YouTube work - if so would the garage be prepared to do that for me? I have no tools here. I've seen how you reprogram the keys on an Altima, with the reprogramming tool - but the Altima also has a slot for the fob as well - I don't think the Cube has this? Any ideas Please?
