So after getting to work, which is a 20 min drive, the car wouldn't start back up after 10 mins. After a short diagnosis, the tech informed me it was the steering lock motor, which is more common than people think. I am also at 37,000 miles so beyond the warranty period. But overall, less than 10 min to program remote to car. The dealership has had our car 3 or 4 times and can not get the car to duplicate our problem so they will not replace any part to try to fix it. Electric door locks sometimes dont all lock with key fob.
When both of us had our keyfobs with us in the car, the main one overroad the good one and would not work. I have a 2007 Murano and have noticed that my keyless remote seems extremely sensitive to touch: the car unlocks and the windows roll down with just the slightest pressure against the key fob, which is very annoying when the fob is resting in my purse, it's raining outside, and the windows start rolling down on their own. With the push of a button, your car doors and trunk will unlock and your engine will turn on. Freaked me out the first time I walked out in the driveway and both front windows were down and I know I didn't leave them open. I also thought about radio towers or the keys being in the same pocket as my cell phone, but I never put them in the same pocket as my phone and the problem happens at various locations all around town. I tried everything in this forum and no luck. Dallman22 wrote:Thought I might chime in here.

Now if the steering lock motor were the issue, i dont think i would have been able to drop it in neutral and steer it back so i could get my car next to it to jump it. I just got off the phone with Nissan. Is there anyone that knows what is going on here? I put the car in neutral and then turn it on. It is there in case the battery in the fob dies. It only had one key.
But it started the car and It hasnt happened again. The car was working again. I wonder if this is a common problem with the 09 Maximas?
