SOURCE: My car alarm is blinking
you can try switching the key to the "on" position then open the hood and disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and reconnect after 2minutes. this will allow the alarm to be '"reset" and will recognize that you have the key for the vehicle.

Sounds like a basic bad battery. Even though its not that old it can be bad....and probably under warranty. Immobilizer or starter will not cause that. Get the bat tested.
Only other thing is called a "parasitic draw". This is when something is drawing current from the battery when its supposed to be off. Usually this causes a totally dead battery, not a weak one like you have.

I wish I had the answer. But, I have the exact same problem with a 1999 4runner. Hoping someone has the answer. The dealer I purchased it from just replaced the actuator, still no good. One dealer said maybe the master switch, hopefully not, they said that part is $400. Maybe a relay going bad?
