HiCustomerand welcome to JustAnswer,

Does the car have the factory keyless entry?

Does the security indicator, left of the steering wheel, on the dash, stop blinking?

Hello,

You have many options with today's internet so Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.com.

You have an immobilizer system on that car. Do you have any other keys? Does the indicator light flash or go out when you stick the key in the car? Have you had the computer replaced recently?

no keyless entry

it blinks like 3 times pause then 2 times over and over.
no immobilizer
no other keys

no work has been done on vehicle
The AutoClub just fixed it..
put the key in and stomped on the gas pedal afew times the the brakes a few times
the security system now is normal, thanks anyway

I am glad you got it going. You better double check because all corollas in 05 came with immobilizer chip keys. If the security light was flashing when you inserted the key there is something going on.
