    Have the battery tested. Horn and lights require only a little power to operate, the starter draws much more and maybe the battery can't handle the load. You might try jump starting the car.

    No the security light is not on ,however the car will not start on a boost either. All the lights are on it turns over but will not stay.

    The boost is mis-leading, it tells us the battery does not have enough amps to spin the starter. Is there any codes associated with the no start condition?
