Nissans are known to have problems with ignition coils which would not show up on code reader. I would start with that. Pull a plug and hold it to ground to see how strong the spark is while turning engine over. If the plugs are wet when you take them out then you can be sure it is in all probability related to coils.

SOURCE: security light was coming on
When ever the security light comes on, it only means one thing. The PASSLOCK anti theft in your vehicle is not communicating properly with itself. It sounds confusing, but its really simple.
Your key has a trasnponder (radio waves) in it. So not only must the key be "cut" correctly to turn the the ignition like every other key, but it must also send the correct radio signal to the ignition. This signal is then sent from the ignition/lock cylinder to the TDM (theft deterrent module) which in turn activates the starter and injectors. Which then allows your to start your vehicle or remain running.
The system is a great idea, because without the actual transponder key near the ignition, you can't even hotwire the vehicle. The problem is. Passlock has about a 5-7 year lifespan. Costs anywhere from $350-$700 + labor to fix, and is gaurenteed to fail again on you down the line. Diagnosing which part of the system is not working is next to impossible yourself, and many people end up throwing vehicles away because of this.
The good news is, when this happened to me, i found some ways to beat this system. Check out this link. Im sure you will find some sort of help on it. It gives you a rundown of symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions to the problem. Good luck and i hope this helps you.
