It sounds like you have a bad starter motor. We need to check the trigger wire at the starter to see if it is getting power while in the crank position. Check out this guide toward the bottom to see how to test the starter

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/car-cranks-but-wont-start

and if the starter tests bad this guide will give you an idea of what it will take to fix it.

You will need to raise the car up safely.

Here are some diagrams to show you how on your car. (below)

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

When you push starter button it just clicks and dash lights flash, new battery and good starter, all other electronics work fine.

The security system would not do that on that car. Sounds like you have corrosion or a bad connection/loose connection.
