Question about Nissan Cube
A couple of things, firstly yes the gap i the starter is relevant it suggests that there is either a bad earth, poor connection to either the starter or altenator and / or a fuse may be faulty thats not to sday it has blew as on occasion they can melt when a car is jumped off, especially if the car or van jumping it had a higher amp-age battery.
Secondly regarding the ECU issue why I cannot say for sure this will work it is worth a try with the current situation your having. Disconnect the car battery charge it up if you think that it insufficient power to start the car, if you can leave the battery disconnected overnight, this will allow the ECU battery backup to drain and hopefully reset the ECU back to factory settings.
When you reconnect the battery attach the red "positive" first then the earth "black" second. Lock the car and leave it for about 2 minutes then open/unlock the car and try to start it.
Let me know how you get on with this firstly then get back to me, if no joy there are a few things you can try without forking out for new parts. Also it would be up to the dealer to prove the damage occurred during the jump start, you should argue your point as a paying customer.
Did the garage run a volt meter on the battery? if not they should have before making any diagnosis on the ECU. Relay's & fuses could be a cause as the relay may be sticking hence the slight gap in starting, in theory it would jam after the click not completing the circuit. There are 2 lots of fuses, small type that are found in the car for things like the radio, lights etc and there are larger fuses for the car's computer and main running of the larger components such as alternator & engine wiring, again the garage should have checked these already.
Hope this helps, be careful the dealer is not trying to rob you as they often do. If I can help further please message me back, If I do not respond right away I will get back to you in the morning. as it is getting late here in the UK.

Have a seat in your Honda and close the doors, but make sure they are unlocked.
Turn your ignition key to the "On" position, labeled by two lines (II). Press the "Unlock" button on your keyless remote. Turn your ignition key to the "Off" position.
Repeat the procedure three times, and then turn the ignition key to "On." Immediately press the "Lock" button on your keyless entry. Listen for the doors to lock, and then unlock to signal that you are in programming mode.
Press the "Lock" button on the keyless remote, and then turn the ignition to the "Off" position to confirm.
