That's the system that is supposed to prevent theft. It's really good at preventing owners from driving their cars. When it happens, turn the key to "On" and let it sit for ten minutes. The light will stop flashing. Turn the key off and start the car normally. I usually have to feed it a little gas at first. If it happens all the time, get the ignition switch and key replaced.
