Car Intermittently Won't Start (Security Light)

Hey guys, so I have been having a problem recently where intermittently my car won't start. I have to leave the key in the "on" position while the security light blinks for 10 minutes, then turn the key to the "off" position then it starts up with no problem. I have read that this is an issue with the security system on these cars. Does anyone know the cause and what needs to be done to fix it? Thanks!

Thumbs up Security Solution

I had the same problem and resolved it by having NEW Keys made. This rectified it on the spot & starts without security issues.

My original solution I tried was we thought the Battery was going dead, but that wasn't the problem so try a New Key.

Good luck
