The security light flashed...

The security light flashed and it won’t start this a clicking noise even when I’m not turning the key and i have power because my phone is charger but none of the lights or locks work

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

I saw it blink for a minute but then for like 15 now it hasn’t been on at all

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '15 Chevy?

06 Malibu

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’m trying what someone said online to put the key in on position for 10 minutes then off for 5 and then it should start

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

But they said the light should shut off but it isn’t on
