Nissan Navara NP300 Alarm

The new  NP300 Nissan Navara comes with a factory-fitted alarm system in all models apart from the entry-level DX variant which I’ll explain later in the post. All models including the DX have an immobiliser.

The Top of the range ST-X model also comes with the Nissan Intelligent Key which gives proximity locking and a push to start button which means there is no need to press the remote buttons or insert a key.

The alarm, however, is rather basic in that it only offers door trigger input and honks the horn.

When the alarm arms the security symbol in the instrument cluster flashes rapidly for 30 seconds as shown in the video below. It then flashes once every 3 seconds when fully armed.

The alarm has no internal movement sensor or bonnet protection, let alone a battery back-up siren.

The NP300 shares the same CAN-BUS platform as most other current Nissan’s so the Cobra AK4615 is my recommendation.

I’ve tested it on the ST-X model with the Intelligent key, as well as the RX and ST models that come with the traditional Nissan remote key. The AK4615 works flawlessly with them all.

As I’ve pointed out before the vast majority of CAN-BUS alarms can be tricked into arming/disarming by pressing the hazard switch and locking/unlocking the doors with most Nissan’s. This is not an issue with the Cobra.

Cobra Alarm Installation Details

The Ultrasonic Sensors on the AK4615 look like they were made for the NP300 as does the LED over-ride switch. Here are some photos of how the alarm looks when installed:

DX model lacks keyless entry

If you have the DX (base model) and want keyless entry then the KE11 is a good option.

If you are after an alarm for your DX then I highly recommend the Cobra AK4698 which will give you the remote locking that the DX lacks as well as a top of the line alarm system.

Tailgate lock

Adding keyless locking to the Navara Tailgate can be done for $140.00. Not only does this save you having to fumble for the keys, but it’s also reassuring to know that you’ve locked it with the doors.

Tool Protection

If your NP300 has a canopy then a PIR sensor is an easy add on as it a reed switch should you have a hard lid.

Own an older Model Nissan Navara?

If you have a D40 or D22 Navara then this post covers both models.

    Hi There, Have 2 x DX 2016. models looking at puting central locking in them .. KE11.

    Will it require a motor in drivers door?

    Would be looking to get both done in Hamilton.

    Hi Daniel,

    The DX already has central full central locking so a KE-11 can be added to give you full keyless entry without having to add a drivers door motor.

    The sad thing when i ask the nissan tehnician they cannot answer me about the problem they always say that its normal i think its not because mu understanding is built in alarm is to protect the car but why even without touching it the alarmmis activated?
