  post locked   I can't find my intelligent key lost inside my Maxima  

I have a 2011 Nissan Maxima 2.5L and somehow I have lost the intelligent key in the car.
I know the key is in the car as I can start the car but after spending 4 hours looking for it I can't find it.I cannot lock the car with the intelligent key lost inside.
Any ideas on how I can locate it?

I can't personally know how each set up is designed to do what.


How about since you can still drive it just not lock it have a locksmith or contact a shop that deals with this a lot find it? I would bet there's a tool that will know it's close then hopefully find it.


Good luck, what a pest this stuff is when it's lost or not working can be a real hassle to dangerous IMO,

Other than finding the key, there is no solution.

As you already know, the car will not lock while the key is inside. My suggestion is to look carefully between the seat and the console and underneath the seats.

I know you've looked everywhere but now HT confirmed it knows it's inside. Does this have a center pull parking brake with a slot in rubber at console? Laugh now I lost a French fry in there drove me nuts (another type vehicle) sure enough a funky clawed thing to retrieve lost tools, nuts, bolts (tech's have this junk) found it out of sight. It's not a magnetic thing unless it has a key ring on it there are tools to find lost things magnetic or push and it grabs.


Look for the assortment at any decent auto parts outlet if that's possible and that lost??

I've found the key as you said it was between the drivers seat and the centre console at a very low level sitting just outside the slide channel and only accessible with the drivers seat back rest lowered and the seat pushed forward.
Your positivity as to where it would be encouraged me to find it. Thankyou..

PS: I did find a way to lock the car (when the key was lost) by manually moving all the doors, other than the drivers to lock; then using the manual key on my spare key to lock the drivers door.

Glad you found it. I'll close this question now as solved.
