Car will not start. No sound from the starter. Clicking relay sounds. Dash says starting system fault. Dash lights flicker like sending power when attempting to start but no start. I think it may be an anti-theft issue.

Is the security light flashing when you try to start the car? If not, the security system is not the problem. From what you describe it sounds like the battery is weak, can you turn your headlights on for 10 minutes and try to crank the engine over? If the lights go out the battery is to blame, here is how to change it out to fix the problem. This generic guide will let you know the steps with instructions for your car in the images below.
