2.2L 4CYL when do I check for the light? While I'm cranking or when i first put in the key.

When the key is in....At any point is the light on or flashing? Did this just suddenly happen or was it driving rough or something before?

Yes, when i turn the key to ACC the security light is flashing. It was running fine, shut it off, the next day it didn't start. The gas tank was very low and I thought that the fuel wasn't being picked up by the pump so i put about 3 gallons in.

Ok, try this.......Bump key into start position for just a second without trying to start it then leave it in on position for 10 minutes, shut off for 5 seconds, turn on for 10 minutes, off for 5 seconds, on for 10 minutes, then try to start it. Let me know if that works. Thanks.
