many thanks calnorth for your reply. I assumed it would be a tricky job to do. I think I will keep researching this before I attempt to do it.
A thing you might look at which may or may not impact on your DIY aspiration. The BMW was of course old technology and did not require a special tool (electronic config) to register keys to the ECU by interacting with the ECU directly. So changing the lock in part or whole did not prevent the car from running normally after such surgery by me.
Nissan uses its CONSULT tool (diagnostics & setup/installation) for setting and initialising a number of sub systems on the car including Security, Brakes, Cameras etc. So apart from registering the new key fob there could be other parts of procedure that need electronically configuring to enable the car to operate normally after surgery?
Security is aimed at prevention of car theft which as I discovered also aims at the likes of me digging into it. Electronically disabling a car on fault condition/attack is quite something else and would thwart my old and large toolbox. CONSULT is quite a few thousand pounds and eBay won't be the place to go.
