Toyota corolla security engine lock

Asked by Sep 03, 2017 at 09:58 AM about the 2013 Toyota Corolla S Special Edition

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a Toyota Corolla 2013 Special Edition last week. Yesterday,
suddenly once I entered the key and I was to start the engine, it started
honking with the security key flashing. The engine was starting that time.
After 2 tries, honking again, but the engine was making a continuous noise
when starting. Then after two more tries, now the engine doesn't even start. I
don't hear a start sound.

It looks like the key fob is broken and the car was thinking i'm a robber and it
locked the engine. What should I do now? Is the battery also dead now?
