Default Door locks and key codes

Hey guys, sorta at a loss since the truck is a 96. Nissan can't get me codes to make new keys (database only goes back to 98).

I can remove door panels just fine, but I'm unable to remove the door locks from the doors. Does anyone know how?

Actually, do the locks even have the codes on them? Is there another way to find them?

no code on the lock cylinders, You can pull one door lock and take it to a locksmith and have a key made for it, than it will work in all the locks.

That is the easiest way to do it as you won't have to mess with the ignition at all.

To remove the lock cylinder, there is a metal clip, I use a large flat screw driver and pry the clip off the lock cylinder, than you can disconnect the linkage and pull the lock cylinder out from the outside.

This is what the lock cylinder and clip look like installed, this pic was from my former 94 pathfinder but they all look and attach the same:

The black part in front of the lock cylinder clip is for the auto door unlock feature the pathfinder uses, you can see the clip behind it, it's kind of rusty looking:



after removing the metal retainer clip, you rotate the pink plastic rod holder ( in my pic)counter clockwise, that will allow the 90 degree end of the rod to be able to come out of the pink clip, than the cylinder will be able to be removed

Awesome! Thanks so much. It sounds so simple now.
Do I slide the metal tab towards or away from the lock to release it?

The clip is shaped like a "U" and one side is "L" shaped, you pry on or pull on the "L" shaped end.

"dont break that little pink clip. so be careful."


Advance auto parts sells an assortment of those clips, the kit usually will have one at least that will fit.

I don't understand this "U" shaped or "L" shaped stuff. All I see is this large tab that bends off of the clip at a 90 degree angle. Do I pull on this so the clip pulls away from the lock? Or push it towards it?

the clip that holds the lock cylinder in is shaped like a sideway's "U", the tab on the end which makes the "L" shape is where you pull the clip from to remove it.

here is a pic of the clip not installed so you can understand what it looks like:

It may be stubborn. They sometimes release suddenly, so tape up the opening with some duct tape or masking tape to keep you from getting cut on the sheet metal.

I just use a long flat screw driver, pry against the opening in the door, the clip may go flying when it comes off, usually it will stay inside the door.
