Hey guys. So it looks like I have this problem also. I stopped my car and talked to a friend for fifteen minutes and when I went out and tried to start the car, nothing. The key light was on. After fussing with it for a while and not getting anywhere, I had to have it towed home.

So what do I need to do at this point? Is this a recall issue? What does IPDM stand for? Sorry I'm late to this and haven't had time to read everything in detail yet. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi everyone, had this problem happen to me last night on my 2012 model. I knew about the issue but because the general consensus is that 2012 models onwards had the lock removed, I never even checked to make sure. Had to leave the car at work overnight but performed the Fuse removal this morning. The car was able to be started after a few hits with a hammer.
Wanted to say a huge thanks to this Forum and everybody that has contributed to figuring out a fix for this issue as I definitely didnt want to spend thousands of dollars at the dealer ( australian prices are even worse). Also wanted to emphasise that even though 2012 built Z's are apparently not meant to have a steering lock, do yourself a favour and check if you own one. Save yourself the heartache and spend 20 mins beong proactive.

Thanks again to everyone involved

What’s up everyone, add one more to the list. Same thing happened to me early this morning while at the gas station. Pulled in to fill up and as soon as I finished I noticed the “no key” light on. I’ve inserted both key fobs into the slot with no success coming from either. I then got new batteries and still no success. Had to wait about 2 hours for a tow.

I currently have the key warning light showing for the past 2 months without any problems starting the car. Does anyone think I need to do anything about it ? Curiously I also lost my cruise control around that time. Any solutions for this problems ?

So, it finally happened. My original SLU failed last Thursday (last week). I had it towed to the stealership where my car goes for services. Next day I get a call from my service advisor advising me that the SLU had failed and needed to be replaced. Fine, I'll pay to play. The part comes in the following Monday. I get a call from my service advisor saying the car is ready. I drive home no problem. I drive it on Tuesday no problem. I drive on Wednesday no problem. I drive to the grocery store on Thursday (yesterday), went in to grab a few things, come out, start up the car, the intelligent key system warning light comes on and the car won't start. The service department supposedly replaced the orignal SLU with the latest and greatest (sic) SLU model #48700-9N00B. That's gotta be a record. Failure a few days later after replacement. Methinks they didn't replace the SLU or they received a lemon SLU from Nissan's warehouse. Now, let's see if the stealership will reimburse me for the second towing charge. Waiting for them to "fix" the problem so I can sell the car. Did anyone else beat me for having a second failure within four days since replacement??

No need to post the same message three times.
