Lost Key : Key Cutting : Key Code Location For Nissan Skyline

Did you lose your key for your Nissan Skyline? Is the old key so worn down that it doesn't work? Do not fret, it is possible to get a new key cut from a code located on the drivers side door handle.

The master key for the car, will also have a 4 digit code, the same code stamped in it.  However if you don't have the master, or lost all the keys, you obviously won't have these numbers. 

Sean Kirby from Poor People Racing posted information on how to go about getting a new key for your car. 

If you have lost your key, you will need to either have an original key, or remove the drivers door handle from your vehicle. On the lock tab of the drivers door handle is the factory key code (4 digit number)
Take that key to a locksmith and have them cut a Z32 key blank (cheap one) . The code process is X0000 You supply the key code from your lock, and they add X to the beginning. If you have an original key, the 4 digit code will be on the key itself.
Having the door lock with you allows the locksmith to test the key on site, Door Lock and ignition is the same tumbler. Trunk is missing a few. Glove box lock is also missing a few.

Original R32 GT-R key on the left, R33 key on the right. Nerding out to keys.

Notice the difference?  The GT on the R32 key is recessed. On the R33 key it is raised.  The OEM R32 key is a KEY00-00108. The R33 key is a KEY00-00185.  The R33 key is available though normal channels - Like here

Genuine Nissan OEM part Blank Master Key KEY00-00185 has been discontinued and has been replaced with Nissan Key, Blank Master KEY00-RHR30.

The key for a Nissan Skyline GT-R uses the same blank as many other Nissans like the Z32 or 240SX. A few examples:

    Cole DA25
    Curtis DA-27
