Anti-theft lock out? Truck wont start.

Ok went to advance to pick up some ac recharge was driving the x all day. Ran in came out attempted to charge the ac x wouldn't start. The i notice a continuous clicking sound coming from the dash as if my hazards were on but they weren't. Also observed the alarm light continuously blinking.

Had to get it towed home would not start dunno whats going on.

Steps I have already tried.

A) Tested battery all good( no start)
B) Replaced negative connector to the battery extremely corroded. ( no start)
C) Wire brushed the hell out of the battery leads and connectors (No start)
D) Tried the Key in the Drivers side and rear hatch several time if im doing it correct. (no start)

Like i said blinking alarm light hazard sound coming from the dash and all signals but the driver side blinking. Also all instruments in the vehicle are working. First issue I have had since owning this thing for 3 months 109xxxx miles.

Any ideas or can someone put me in the right direction.

For Muhoms1: hi, names doug from Lynchburg, Va. my first day registered because I am also having exact same security/no start problem on my 03X. This is a recurring problem, had mine towed to goodyear shop and they had to get solution from Nissan to unlock security system at a $120 cost. Only problem was repair guy told me to call him if I experienced problem again. Now I have same problem, called him and he forgot how he resolved problem. He said he used key (I have no keyfob) in driver door, selecting lock and unlock for some periods of time but couldn't remember after a few months. Ive been trying things for a week with no luck.
He suggested I tow it to Nissan and have them figure out recurring problem. Thought I'd try this forum first before towing and spending $90 for diagnostics and repair time etc. If he just used a regular key in the door lock, it seems to me it would be a rather simple repeatable process to duplicate and one which should be in the owners manual under security system for a stock Nissan security system (not aftermarket), but I also can't find any solution in the manual or on the net to work. Anyone else have suggestions for Muhoms1 and myself? doug.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, I can wait a while for some replies as I have 2 other cars, and my son in college if off for summer. I hear your pain of the bill for something they probably can fix in less than a minute but will milk the diagnostics and repair parts. I paid for a relay which I have no idea whether it was bad or not. I just can't help but feel this is a recurring problem since 03 and we should have a quick reply to our problem from someone that has had similar problem and not have to tow/repair at dealership. doug

Read xtacular's reply to my 9:44pm post

xtacular gave a two key alarm reset procedure which may work. I can't try it as I went to locate my second key and it is no where to be found. I will make another spare key tomorrow at walmart and try to reset the alarm system to see if that allows the truck to start. at this point the price of a key is a small quick Hopeful fix to my and possibly our similar problems. doug.

2 key method did not help start X for me.

I copied a key and tried the two key method but never got the starter to even turn over which suggests the security system is still engaged although the security system blinks every second. Running out of options myself. How did you fair trying same two key method?

Can you get in the car or are you locked out? If you can get in pop the hood and pull the anti theft fuse. If it has anything to do with the security system this should solve it
