Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have 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.

The security light flashing in most cases means the security system and or the key have lost programming and one thing you can try is try using your spare key and see if it will read. If the spare key will not work as well then the next step is going to require having the system scanned to see what the fault code and or codes are that should be setting. If you can get this done and post back with the results we can work from there to get this resolved.
