Default QX30 New key Fob

Hello, Need advice. I just bought a used QX30 and have only one Key Fob. I see used ones on EBAY but these still have to be programed to start the car. Locksmith is telling me he cannot do the qx30. Is the only alternative the Dealership?

You could try another locksmith. If they're not familiar with the QX30 ask them about a Mercedes GLA (It's the same keyless GO system, afaik).

Otherwise, an Infiniti dealer should have no problem programming the FOBs.

We went through this experience with the dealer. It took about 10 days to get the key copied. Infiniti engineering had to get involved.
I didn't really care, as long as we got the copy. They knocked off some money, which was nice. The SA said it usually takes an hour or two to do it.
It's because it's a Mercedes key fob. Again, the waiting was not an issue for us. I called around to locksmiths and no one could do it. Just bite the bullet and do it, for piece of mind. My two cents.
