The security light on the dash is on and blinking and isn't starting

Somebody tried to break into your car, and you wont be able to get it to turn over without reprogramming your car key, or simply be persistent,and continue trying to crank it. but for sure you will need it re programmed, beware because it is expensive.

hope this helps. by the way that system is the "Anti-Theft"

Power cuts out while driving but just for a second,but the car keeps going after that, and on the dash one of the lights blink and it says security.

if your security starts to flash check the battery connections on the body & on the motor loose connection can cause this the car thinks someone is trying to steal it when you disconnect the battery or change the battery you have to make sure that you know the security code / or if it is passive the key to open lock then open the door to reset the code

We replaced the car's battery and now the dash board lights blink

Under the dash on drivers side is the black box for the security system. If you look on the box there is a little red button. Push the button for a couple of secounds and it will click and stop your marker lights and dash lights from flashing. It is a stock anti theft part of the security system. Hope this helps.

Starts but then it shuts off

Make sure those 3 wires on the passlock sensor are good.That sensor is on the lock cylinder on the right side of the steering column. You may want to check the wires on the ignition switch also.(green,black).But I would look at the sensor 1st since that is where they hook up those remote starters as far as I know.
