Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 04 Toyota Celica automatic. It came with a
car starter. Recently I have an issue with starting it
with the key.  it won't start with the key but the car
starter will start it.  When it won't start with the key,
everything in the car flashes including my back
headlights  and the blue security light stays on
blinking while I drive it. When I shut it off the lights
flash until I lock it . Any ideas ?

Take it someplace that does these installs and either put in another one or have it put back to stock wiring.
