Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The security light flashing is a normal operation. When you turn the key to the ON position, does the security light go out? Also when the key is in the ON position, does the Radiator Fans come on?

The security light would not go off, but the fan would occasionally come on after multiple attempts.

Do you know if you have any codes?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
