Default intermittent SL2 starting problem

2000 SL2, my daughter went out this morning to start the car. According to her the dash lights blinked then when she went to start the car put the key in the ignition and nothing at all happened, no dash lights or anything. I don't know for sure yet if the dash lights blinked when she opened the door or after she put the key in (will get that clarified).

This no start problem had occurred once while I had the vehicle (I did not observe dash lights blinking). I rolled it back out of the parking spot and as I was doing so all the dash lights came up and I was able to start it no problem.

So this morning I put the key in the ignition, put it in reverse, let it roll back down the drive a couple of feet, and again all the dash lights came on and I was able to start it.

I've taken it to autozone and they tell me the battery and alternator test ok. With the dash lights blinking I'm hazarding a guess that it's something to do with the security system.

I'm going to get the car to a mechanic but I'd appreciate your thoughts on the problem so perhaps we can narrow the troubleshooting.
