Sounds like a bad coolant temp sensor and possibly bad connector. Do ever have to hold the gas pedal to the floor to start it?Any codes in the computer?
Holding the gas pedal to the floor work for a couple time now when I do it it dont start at all wihtout holding it start but die right away sometimes the security light come on but go away soon adn I havent take to scaner yet

As far as the security light on thats a seperate issue.
