I am needing to get a new key fob for my pathy. I have a 97 Pathfinder LE.
I was curious if anyone knew what model I needed to get... Like the numbers on the fob or whatever?
I've never bought a new fob before, so I'm not sure what to do.
As I understand, there are two frequencies for that Pathy's remote. It depends if it was manufactured in Japan or the US.
Get one from eBay, they are cheap and work great.
Just search for "97 pathfinder keyless entry" and it'll give you the result!
I got one for a Nissan Altima and worked great. They even give you the instructions to program the remote, it's very easy.
Had to replace a remote on my 97 Pathy as well. After a lot of research (aftermarket ones, eBay) I decided to go to dealer and buy a new remote. Cost about $90 and the parts department guy programs it for you as well. Have to have your truck there for them to do it. Took about 10 mins.
