Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

Yes it flashes to let others know you have an alarm on the car and not to mess with it! Yes. It should blink when the key is not in the ignition. This lets you know that the Passive anti-theft system is on. What this means? Basically the key you use has a specific code that coordinates with your car, and that key is the only key that will work for your car out of a possible 70 quadrillion codes or something like that. The light is used to help scare away thiefs that would break into your car, no car alarm will go off if they do, but most run of the mill car thiefs wont take the chance of breaking into your car if they think there might be an alarm on it. If the light blinks while the key is in the ignition then you shouldn't be able to start the car. It's normal for it to always flash. The only time it won't is with the car running.
If this was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.
