You need to have the anti theft system re-flash in order to start the car and can only be done at the dealership !

can't believe the problem was as simple as getting a new battery.Apparently,when car is not started,the anti theft light blinks all the time.After starting,it stays on approx 3 seconds,then goes off.It's running like a top again.
