Hi:
The battery light means that your Alternator is not charging the battery. Thankfully, your cars battery was fully charged, and I am guessing that you were driving during the day, because if you were using your headlights, you would have been in trouble.
Basically, a fully charged battery should read about 12.6 volts, and when your car is running, you should be able to measure about 14 volts across the battery, because that is the output of your alternator. You can get your alternator tested for free at a local auto parts store, such as Auto zone, as it is the most likely thing to change.

This is likely a defective main headlight switch, have the switch looked at for signs of heat related damage to the connector, if that is found replace the switch and install a repair connector, both are avail from most parts stores like NAPA and Carquest.

WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY OVER IT SAYS NOTHING ALL LIGHTS ARE ON BUT THE THEFT LIGHT STAYS ON


Try leaving the key on for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Then turn the key off, now turn it back on and see if it starts. If you have a battery charger, put a charger on it for the 10 min, it is sitting with the key on so the battery doesn't go dead.

SECURITY LIGHT IS ON AND CAR WON'T START


I had the same problem. You have to turn the key to start and let it sit there for 10 min while the key is sitting on start after 10 min the security light should stop flashing and it should just stay on once that happens you can turn your rkey all the way and it should start
