    You may have a problem in the starter circuit. It could be that the ignition switch is failing, the starter relay is failing or the starter itself is failing.
    Get it checked by a Nissan specialist.
    If you're going to check it yourself, check that you have battery voltage at the big starter cable, and battery voltage at the smaller START wire at the starter when your assistant turns the key to START. If so, and the starter doesn't run, then it's faulty. If there isn't power on the START wire when the key is turned to START, then the control part of the circuit is faulty.
