Heat pump Switching ON and OFF Constantly

Everytime I turn the heat pump on (via thermostat), it comes on for 3 seconds, then switches off for 3 seconds, them comes on for 3 seconds, then turns off for 3 seconds, and so on... I tried a new thermostat, and the same problem remains. Any obvious problem?

Does the blower inside stay on????
You could have a low pressure switch in it that does this.
Low on freon???? Capacitor bad in the unit compressor ridding the klixon on and off. Does it run in AC???? Dont let it try and run this way till you get it fixed. Go over to AUX or EM heat for sure. iI think you had better call a hvac tech here.
