I just did this mod after having a Euro key mod (that I felt was too large anyway)fail on me. I have a 2012 Xterra S and it worked great. Got the key cut at Lowe's. Turns out they do transponder programing/copying but for some reason they couldn't copy mine. So I just did what everyone else here did and used my valet key transponder, then programmed the remote for my car(very easy) and boom! Great new small footprint key!

Thanks for the How-To jeff_redx

I'm slow , just so i'm clear there are two options correct?

step one : buy rogue key

step two: have key cut with stock key as the guide

step three: this is where there are options.

1. follow the programming sequence to link key to your car
or
2. cut out your transponder and glue it into the new key

You are close! Here was my process:

1. Buy Rogue key(I did it from eBay)
2. Take transponder from valet/old key and put it in Rogue key
3. Go to Lowe's and very friendly like explain what you would like done. They will look at you weird and say they might not be able to do it (depending on skill). The key fits a 38 size cartridge I believe. Remember that so you can tell em.
4. Follow the instructions here to program the remote control part of the key to your car. You'll have to do this for ALL of your keys at once I believe and you can do a maximum of four remotes. At which point your oldest key will be deleted and you'll be stuck with the newest four.
5. PROFIT!

P.S. - If you don't have a valet key... or you bought 3 Rogue keys because you just couldn't handle the excitement (like me). You'll have to find a capable locksmith or local Nissan dealer that can program the Transponder for you without raping you in price. I've done extensive research over the weekend and programming this thing buy yourself isn't possible to do.

Thanks for the informative thread.

I purchased a $9 Nissan Rogue key from Ebay (doesn't have the genuine Nissan logo on back of it). The key comes with a transponder and battery, but I removed the transponder out of my valet key and swapped it out with the one in the new key.

Drove to Lowes and told the key clerk I'm trying to copy keys. He read some chart behind the counter and said he knew what cartridge to use. 15 seconds later, the key was copied. I asked if I should pay for the key cutting, but he said it wasn't necessary.

Followed the procedure posted by the OP on how to program the remote. It was super easy. Get in vehicle. Lock doors manually (via the door panel). Put key in and out of ignition 6-7 times then the hazard lights will flicker once. At that point, re-insert the key into the ignition and turn 1 click to the ACC setting. Press any button on the remote. It's programmed. Then do the same with other remotes if you still want to use the old ones.

Overall, a great value at $9 total cost.

So the guys with the rogue key, do you think the panic button is truly less sensitive? I set mine off constantly.

I just wanted to bump this thread to say that I did this mod last year (back when I was just lurking on the board) and I'm really happy with it. I bought a blank key from ebay for less than $20 and swapped the chip over. Took it to Wal Mart and they said they couldn't cut those kinds of keys. Whatever. Went to a local locksmith. He charged me $25 which is kind of outrageous, but at least I was sure it would be cut right. I realized after the fact that I should have gone to the hardware store and it probably would have been cheaper. I programmed the keyless entry sitting in a parking lot and it's worked great ever since.
I always thought the seperate key and fob was kind of clumsy and this is so much easier to carry.

When I took my X into the dealership to get a wheel bearing replaced the service writer was really impressed with my key and asked me how I got it to work haha.

And I don't think I've hit the panic button once since doing this swap.

In fierceness and rage he paws at the ground.
He smells the battle from afar, he turns not back from its thunderous sound.
He rushes out to meet the sword, he laughs at fear and is not dismayed.

I've seen those on ebay but I'm not convinced they are made by Nissan. The new style Rogues are all push button start and use the same intelligent key as all the other models.

The base, new body style rogue does in fact use a flip out key blade. It's a regular turn key ignition. The sv and up is push button.

I haven't tried it, but I doubt the new rogue flip key will work with the xterra.
