Hello,

It sounds like you have a weak battery which will cause the alarm system to trigger itself which makes the security light blink.

Here is a guide to help you get the battery changed out.

Then if the security light still flashes remove the negative cable and hold it to the positive terminal for 5 minutes this will discharge the capacitors in the system and allow it to reset. This guide should help

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken
