This is a easy fix. Lucky just follow the procedure and your car will start. This is a theft system shut down.
The procedure is. Disconnect battery for a minimum of 30 seconds. ( one post is OK. )
Reconnect battery and get in the car and start as usual 1 time only. When it starts and stops letthe key just return to run position as if it was running. Do not shut it off and if you do you must stert the procedure all over again. i usually put on the emergency brake before i start and that shuts of the driving lights etc.
Just leave the key in on running position and go have a coffee. it takes 15 to 20 minutes for the car to recycle the system. When you come back to the car the flashing theft light will either be off or solid.
Try to start again. If it doesn't go shut it off and turn back on and start as usual. It will start and run and stay running.
The reason you have this problem is something electronic was disconnected whe the battery was hooked up. always disconnect the battery before you touch anything electronic and you will not have this problem.

You have a dead battery. It needs to be replaced. What you hear, are the low voltage relays trying to activate.

Testimonial: "It is NOT a ded battery, don't you think I would have checked that first. I may be blond, but I am not dumb!!!!!"
Sounds like the trailer towing might be a fluke occurance I would say that you Igntion switch may have a burnt contact inside it.I have replace alot of these at my Garage.

It sounds like a Body ground problem or a shorted Battery. Try using jumper cables and connect the NEG jumper cable to a body part on the Firewall. Then see if the lights and accessories work. You can leave the Battery cables in place. If the lights work, see if the car starts.
Dirty Battery cables can also cause this problem. So can a shorted Battery, though I would think a lightbulb would work with even a shorted Battery. Everytime you disconnect the Battery you are making a new connection when you reconnect the cables. The ends should be shiny not black.
You can eliminate the shorted Battery by disconnecting your Battery cables and use the jumper cables to bypass the Battery and use another vehicle to run yours via the jumper cables. They you will know if the Battery is shorted.
Autozone and Oreillys do free tests on Batteries and will scan your car for free if you can get it there.
