Expert:  Jay replied 10 months ago.
Well I can't help determine the issue if it's not happening. How many times have you reset the battery to get it going?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Bout 4 times , im thinking the keys or bcm may be at fault .dealer to test those ???
Expert:  Jay replied 10 months ago.
Are the keys you have Nissan Keys or After Market? I know you have looked for the security light but are you looking for the security light when the engine is turning over or when you turn the key to the ON position?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Factory keys ,when key is off light blinks . When cranking or running light is off
Expert:  Jay replied 10 months ago.
When Cranking, the light will be out. You want to turn the key to the ON position where all the dash warning lights come on and see if the security light is ON Solid. The light should be off if it reads the key. If the light is ON then you would have a Immobilizer acting up. When the Immobilizer is active, it kills injector pulse like you are describing. So you really want to pay attention to the key in the ON position, not the Cranking position. I can keep this question open so the next time this happens you can double check and let me know.. will that work for you?
