You might have a shorted cell in the battery, measure the voltage and post back.

Another thing to try is to turn the key on, without trying to start, if the security light comes on and starts blinking then leave the key on until it stops and goes out altogether. Then turn the key off and start the car. If it starts you may have to do this from time to time. If it does not start then hopefully someone else will have the answer....GOOD LUCK!
