Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the engine starts and dies after approximately two seconds along with the lights flashing and horn honking then the problem is indeed with factory security.

Factory security can be disarmed with the unlock button on the key fob or by unlocking a door or the liftgate manually with the key, assuming the disarm switches still work.

Do you have a functional key fob?
