It could be as simple as a blown fuse.
I have checked all the fuses.
They seem ok.

Dead key battery procedure
1. Push the P (Park) position switch on the selector lever.
2. Firmly apply the foot brake.
3. Touch the power switch with the Intelligent Key as illustrated. (A chime will sound.)
4. Push the power switch while depressing the brake pedal within 10 seconds after the chime sounds. The power switch position changes to READY to drive mode.

I tried with a FOB without the battery.
The point 3 is now working fine, I heard the chime and the power switch illuminates.

Unfortunately, when I push the power switch (point 4) the error appears again.

They said to bridge the 12 volt battery with a booster battery.
When I told them the problem still there they replied "Call the emergency number and send the car to the dealer".

Tomorrow I will know.

It took seven days to discover that the I-Key manager of the vehicle was damaged.
They change it and my loved Leaf is fine again.

Fortunately the dealer gave me another Leaf to substitute the broken one.
Blue ocean instead of White pearl, fun to drive anyway.
Tank you all for your suggestions.

Same problem yesterday. Would not accept a charge, also. Off to dealer for diagnosis and repair.

My biggest concern is that I am hoping that the dealership has trained technicians who are capable and competent to repair. Basically the Leaf is an Eletrical Engineering (EE) monstrosity, with highly complex electrical systems, and I'm not 100% convonced that the average car tech is going to have the education and training to properly diagnose and treat EE problems at this level.

We'll see shortly. Got a free loaner for the next couple of days.

Leaf has 1445 miles on the odometer, and we've owned it roughly 6 weeks.

The dealer told me that the I-key system have nothing to do with the electric vehicle.
A few Nissan models share the same I-key system.
A normal technician is capable and competent to repair.

However mine Leaf accepted to be charged while showing the "I-key system fault" error.
Even Carwings was fine.
