Had the same problem, took it ti nissan service centres 3 times, kept replacing stuff no solution. took it to an independant mechanic, said the voltage that the ignition is sending through to the starter is too high & added a voltage control relay into the wiring.no problem since.

I'd have to check wiring circuits to your starter motor. There are usually two hot circuits at the starter, one is battery voltage, hot all the time. The other circuit usually goes hot with key in the crank position. use a test light to check for voltage. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.
There could be other issues, security system-- neutral or clutch switch depending on your tranny--wiring circuit problem, somewhere? Maybe a starter issue? The engine isn't froze-up, is it?
It sounds like you might have a bad alternator. You can't always trust you gauges. Jump it off again and check the voltage at the battery. You should have 14 volts. If it is less then that you have a bad alternator. Good luck.
when they do not work turn the key to the run position, the vehicle does not need to be running, and the wipers set to high speed whack the wiper motor with the handle end of a large screwdriver. if the motor starts to work replace it.
any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.
get a wire tester. One end has an alligator clip the other looks like an ice pick with a light in it. put the alligator clip piece on a grounded object. Turn the key on. Poke the ice pick end onto each wire. the wires that cause it to light up are the hot wires (power going to them) sort them out separate. now turn the key off. Which ever of the power wires doesn't light up with the key off is the wire that turns the radio off with the key. However the main (usually yellow wire) on the radio need to be hooked to a wire that has constant power as thats what stores all of your stations and keeps the time on the clock.
two ways gm uses to reset the light, If you turn the key to accessory and push gas pedal to the floor three full times and hold the pedal down on the third, wait for oil light to blink and go out then turn key back off then turn on car and see if the oil light goes out. The other way is to go thru the radio to reset oil light. try the first way if it doesn`t work send message back and i will type the other procedure out for you in detail.
okay try this ,put key in ignition turn to on position for ten minutes ,roll window down so you dont lock keys in car before you do this. turn to on for ten minutes dont touch anything or turn anything on make sure all accesories are offthen turn key to off position for 10 seconds then try to start.
its important that you dont have radio or any accessory on during this process.
Do you have any check engine lights on? Is your anti-theft light flashing? If so, put key in igniton, turn to on (NOT START) leave in on position for EXACTLY 10 MINUTES As SOON as theft light turns off, try to start.
