That takes us to recommendation #1: Pull the OBDII codes and see if they tell you anything helpful.

And of course, check fuses and try starting in both Park and Neutral.

and when the key is in the ignition but not turned on i can move the shifter from side to side in park and i hear a clicking behind the instrument panel
Did you try what Pilgrim suggested (i.e. start the car in D as well as P--also, wiggle the shifter from side to side while trying to start)? It could be that the park/neutral position switch is faulty. The starter relay is energized by the TCM, which uses the signal from that switch to determine if the transmission is in P or N. If the switch is faulty then this may also explain why the transmission went into fail-safe mode when you bypassed the S circuit. Anyway, if that switch is the problem then there should be a DTC stored--scan for codes as Pilgrim also suggested.

You can find procedures to test the park/neutral position switch in the "cvt.pdf" file of the service manual for your car: Index of /FSM/Murano/2004

Good luck and let us know what you find.
