Check engine light flashes 8 times.That doesn't mean anything . Won't start ! let's examine that first . When you turn the key to the start position , does the starter spin the engine ,yes , no ? If it does this is a cranks no start condition . Now if nothing happens ,this is a no crank no start condition. Who replaced the heater core , You ? You didn't hook something up right , mess up some wiring etc...

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 :)

I don't know your vehicle, but does it have a blower door tucked in where the heater core is? If it DOES and that's broken then it could be the whole problem. It would mean it isn't switching from the A/C side of things to the heat side of them. Hope this helps, good luck! Also, just looked up the proper name for what I'm talking about, it's called a "blend door" and I think your car has one. It's what I would check, again, good luck!

shut all the doors, go to the passengers side put the key in the door, lock and unlock it a couple of times with the key, do the same on the drivers side, usually that will disarm the security system... hope that helps.. if you have keyless entry, you may want to look in the owners manual, sometimes theres a reset procedure in it.

It sounds like this could be your fuel pump sensor also as mention in the earlier post the click could be the pump relay reseting allowing the pump to come on to deliver fuel to the engine. You may also want to check the ignition relay in the fuse box under the hood, a weak relay can heat up and need time to reset before letting the engine start, at the dealership they may not give it time enough to heat up to cause the problem. When the problem occurs again turn the key and listen for the pump to come on if it does come on, then move to the next solution. Hope this helps.
