2008 Nissan Qashqai Green key indicator light stays on

Problem added: Mar 24, 2013 (7 years ago)
Bought car second-hand last January. In September, whilst out with family, car refused to start after our first stop. Jump started and went off for lunch. Again wouldn't start, so jumped again, off to garage and new battery bought. Everything okay until today, when again it refused to start after visiting my brother. Jumped it again, but obviously there is an electrical fault somewhere. The green key indicator light stays on, and could not find anything in the manual, so not sure if this should always stay on, or whether this is anything to do with the battery problem - or just a coincidence. Anyone any ideas, or had the same problem?

light goes out about 30 seconds after
the ignition switch is turned to ON. If the
battery runs down, replace it with a new
