Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
This should not be an antitheft issue. As if the immobilizer was triggered, the engine would not start at all.
Did you check the plugs, oil coolant and clean petrol before starting?
are you able to lock and unlock using the remote fob? is the horn still on, with ignition on, or even with engine on?
