Neither the Nissan NV200 Vanette or the NV350 Caravan are sold as new vehicles by Nissan New Zealand. Thinking about it Nissan NZ don’t sell any vans right now so the chances are if you have one it’ll be a Japanese import.
This probably means no factory immobiliser. If there is no flashing lock symbol in the instrument cluster when the key is out of the ignition then I’d recommend a good immobiliser as a minimum level of protection.
If you have a Nissan remote then I can fit a transponder chip inside the remote which means the Autowatch 573PPi is a tidy option and there is no additional tag to clutter up the keyring.
Having said that most van owners tend to keep tools inside so a decent alarm with ultrasonics would be worth considering.
Both vans can have a remote upgrade alarm, a OEM upgrade alarm, or a CAN-BUS alarm installed without any issues. But if you are looking at a CAN-BUS alarm the have a read up about which systems to avoid if you own a Nissan.
Today I fitted a Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS alarm into a NV200. My customer only had one Nissan remote and wished to use it as his main remote key. The nice thing with AK4615 is that a Cobra remote is an option and is normally much cheaper then a new remote from the dealership.
Here it is in action:
Hear are couple of close up shots of how the alarm looked when finished.
Below are a couple of shots from a NV350 installed earlier this year:
