Hey guys, I need some help.
I turn the Key but Dashboard doesn't light up, just a red light (car with a key inside) keeps blinking and beeping.
Remote also doesn't open or close doors. Battery looks good, 12.7V. Tried jump start and didn't work. Disconnected battery for 10 min and also and didn't work.
It started after very heavy rain.

Thanks in advance.

Does the car start at all? I re-read and it looks like it's not starting at for you, even with the jump. In that case, it def. sounds like the immobilizer has been activated due to some interference -- maybe something on your keyring or a phone in the same pocket as your keys or similar.

The NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System will not allow the engine to start without the use of a registered key.
If the engine fails to start using a registered key (for example, when interference is caused by another registered key, an automated toll road device or automatic payment device on the key ring), restart the engine using the following procedures.​
1. Leave the ignition switch placed in the ON position for approximately 5 seconds.​
2. Place the ignition switch in the OFF or LOCK position and wait approximately 10 seconds.​
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2.​
4. Restart the engine while holding the device (which may have caused the interference) separate from the registered key.​
If the no start condition re-occurs, NISSAN recommends placing the registered key on a separate key ring to avoid interference from other devices​

Beside the info below, which would suck, have you checked fuses?

For vehicles with Intelligent Key: This light blinks when the ignition switch is placed in the LOCK position with the key removed from the ignition switch.
This function indicates the NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System is operational.
If the NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System is malfunctioning, the light will remain on while the ignition switch is placed in the ON position.
If the light still remains on and/or the engine will not start, see a NISSAN dealer for NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System service as soon as possible. Please bring all registered keys that you have when visiting your NISSAN dealer for service.
