Turn the key to the on position and leave for 10 minutes, the light should stop flashing. Then turn to off, wait 5 seconds and remove the key. The system should reset.

    Even though the car is lock mode it should not shut the power off. Have your battery checked.

Make sure the car is fully in park first. Second, those have an ignition lock switch that may have gone bad. And last, there is a security feature that will lock the ignition. I had ti have mine replaced with the key still stuck in it. Good luck

if the key gets stuck ensure that it is not caused by the steering wheel not locking up usually pops off and snapps back in check for screws underneath the steering column

Security light came on yesterday... nowy car

Turn key to run position and leave it there for about 10 mins.......or until security light goes out.
Car should start then.
Also......try another key.....the reader in the lock cylinder may like it better.
