Hi .

Yes sadly you do have a NATS security issue .

Flashing light indicates the system is not recognizing the key.

You need to get hooked up to a nissan diagnostic scan tool and check for NATS malfunction codes .

This is typical when the NAT system loses power from the main battery and could also be the cause of stay alive power

Doing a diagnostic scan of the system will make this clear .

You will have to get the car checked by the Dealer or a mobile key locksmith who also carry diagnostic tools and programming software to program your keys if needed.
