Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera
Check if you have any of following issues
1. Lens is not AF or AF-S
2. Try flicking the lens switch from A to M and back to A again, might solve any contact issues
3. In the menu system also you can navigate to select the manual or auto focussing. if this got set to 'Manual' mode by mistake the camera will not autofocus even if the lens switch is in Auto mode.

Something you have to understand, auto focus mechanisms work on the basis of measuring contrast.
What that means in English is that there have to be clearly identifiable lines or surfaces that can be discerned by the camera. If that is not available the camera can't focus and at night you can count on it that you won't be able to focus for that reason.
This is not a Nikon problem, it's a problem with all auto focus mechanisms of any brand.
What I'd suggest you consider is to focus manually. That immediately solves your problem. Alternately, try to auto focus on some other object that is about the same distance away, then hold your shutter button half way down, compose your shot and finally take the picture.
I hope that helps a little. Good Luck
