Its possible the key may have lost its programming and may need to be programmed back to the vehicle again. The car will not start just crank when that happens and the security light will come on. Usually there is a key immu code stored under the bcm. It may not throw a check engine light. You would need nissan consult to program key to vehicle though

will this cause the engine light to not be present at all also when i get in the car and press the ignition key the key light on the dash comes on green, when I crank it to get all the accessory lights the key light goes red, after it goes out the security light comes on solid and the cooling fan runs, no fuel pump activity at all

I agree with ya. Check two fuse's. Fuse #35 15a in the IPDM under the hood by the windshield washer and Fuse #1 10a under the dash. If both are ok then i would say the ECM took a shit on ya.

Just a suggestion. Take out the center dash and check the white box under the stereo .I had mine unplugged once and did the same. Shake it , coins are known to fall in there.

Your new ecm needs to be programed @ Dealer for the Nvis security. Your new ECM doesnt recognise your old key....you are just throwing money at it.

Also, just so we are on the same page, im not saying the ECM is your original problem....I would have concentrated on the fact that your check engine light didnt come on the dash....did you check ALL the fuses? A common culprit why you cant connect to OBDII port is blown cigarette lighter port as they are on the same circuit often. Also, cheap domestic obd scan tools will not scan imports. You will get a connection error. FSM is your friend.

I believe the immobilizer is activated, why? I don't know. That OBDII scanner worked on the car before and works on my other cars no problem. The car ran perfect the day before, when I went to move it to clean the snow, it did not start.

I had the ECM out of the car for a few twice, with this machine I can clear any code, just not this one. I would drive it if it started
