Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago
If the headlights don’t come on then the battery is dead and needs replaced. This has nothing to do with the immobiliser.

I've tried leaving the key in the ignition for some time. Idk
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Triple A tested the battery the car battery is good.
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago
There is no way of the headlights don’t come on. The headlights don’t even require ignition operation.

Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago
The headlights are fuses directly, the immobiliser just prevents injector pulse, so if the immobiliser was at fault the engine would still crank just fine.

I said.There is NO WAY the battery is good unless the BCM is bad or the fusible link on the positive battery cable is blown.The reason being is that the headlights are fuses directly and require no ignition operation at all! just a good battery and fusible link. This is a common test I used to confirm batteries.If the immobiliser was at fault then then the engine would crank just fine, but not start because you would have no injector pulse.
