My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
It sounds like the battery itself may be at fault causing low voltage causing this issue here or an issue with a component in the vehicle draining the battery as the vehicle sits.The battery and battery drain need tested to see if there is an issue that needs resolved.If the security light is still blinking and not allowing a start of your vehicle let me know and I will see if I can find a security relearn for you on it.
Thanks Pete
