Have your battery checked.

You have a BCM fault (regarding the red security light)- have you had the BCM controller diagnosed? they're sensitive and susceptible to temperature and moisture. Has the inside of the car gotten wet? Also there is a BCM under the hood that controls the lights, if that got wet, then you could have an issue with the head lights. The fuses for the headlights are located behind the back seats, and in the lower driver side kick panel (where the button to control the spoiler is). Check your fuses and have your BCMs checked. good luck.
