Has an aftermarket immobilizer been added on? or do you just use the one on the factory key?

Could be many things.

When you say it dies does the engine suddenly shut off?

Its a factory one. Yer it will start nd just as it starts it shuts off again if i give it a little revs wen i start it it runs fine. Just a little worried that wen i turn the key 2 start nufin happens so then i try again nd off it goes

if u turn ur ignition on to reds and security light still flashing then it not triggering ur imobiliser off either could be battery in key getting sad or the ring around the igniton barrel with 2 little silver metal semi circle strips that the dot on ut key makes contact with they pop off easy can get a small flat screw driver and bend em closer to ur dot not much needed though the security light norm just single flashes unless ur car has been broken in to then flashes different to show where and what they did weather they tried to hot wire etc
