Most commonly with these cars the security system will do this if the battery is "drained" while trying to start the car. ie: a low battery that is too weak to turn the engine over. Usualy the power options & accesories will not work if this is happening.
To fix it you will need to ensure the battery is charged, you then disconnect the battery negative cable for about 1 minute with the key out of the ignition. reconnect the battery cable & start the car normally. Everything should be back to normal.
Let me know if there is anything more you need for this concern.

The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)
Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid
Then just start it up :)

Double ck you batt cable connectios. Turn on your headlights. If lights go out when attempting to cank, You have a poor connection. If they just dim, Your battery is Junk. Turn head lights odd when done. Good Luck

Yes you can slowly charge the battery in the truck,but make sure the battery is disconnected first,make sure you unhook the neg first then the positive,and when reinstalling it hook the positive back up first the the negative you want absolutely no sparks.I have also had to jump start these vehicles at that battery and had the owners drive them 50+ miles and they were fine after that.For those cars it is recommended that they have to be driven or started for a length of time every day or two.I would call your local Toyota dealer and find out for sure.
