with the security light flashing I would try another key and see what happens. most code readers are for engine codes. security codes are from a different module. Find a scanner that does more than a code reader. See if you have pats codes stored. you might have to reprogram your keys to your car.

you can test your starter relay and it's operation in the battery junction box on the left side fender apron. and fuses 11 (30A) fuse 3 (50A) and fuse 8 (15A) making sure they are all good. Check the neutral safety switch and ignition switch. All of these can cause a no crank condition but NONE of these would cause the security light to flash.

so, scan the pats module and let me know what you find out
