Question about Nissan 1400
When I start the ignition there is no response and I don't think it is the battery that is flat.
Turn on lights they should be bright if not then battery is flat if battery ok then check for a blown fuse in the starting system failing that give the starter motor a couple of hits with a hammer this can release a stuck solenoid if it starts after that change starter motor

This is not a sloution but i had a similar problem about 6months ago.
I left the lights on which drained the battery, road assistant came to booost start it, there was power but no turn over, not even a clunk of the engine trying ( all electrics are working and lights in the dash are live), tried a new battery same situation,
I took it to BMW independant specialist who put it down to a ECU fault , i was duped into having a new key made as i had no spare as it was believed the immobilizer had locked the car up so to speak, this didnt work , so the mech ordered a new ecu, and had it reprogrammed and it turned over first time, It was bumpy idling at cold start cos i had my original dead battery but after a day it ran like it used to sweet as a nut.
it was expensive 500 quid to put right, but then you may have better luck with your mechanic.

Always turn the other car first before connecting the cables, otherwise the computer can be damaged. Try disconnecting the battery for five minutes, then connect them again and start the engine. Hopefully this will restore normal operation.

Anyway, try your headlights on full beam. If they dim to almost off when you try to start then most likely its your battery. If they only give a slight flicker but stay bright its most likely the solenoid on your starter motor thats failed. A push start will get you going so you can drive to a dealer.
