ANTI THEFT TURNED ON WHILE DRIVING ON 98

1998 Ford Contour • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 158,000 miles

Ok, so for some reason one night when I was driving home from work, my cars anti theft system turned on while I was driving! My steering wheel locked up, and accelerations wouldn't work and my rpm was shooting over 3, and when my car stopped at a red light it would die. What's going on and how do I fix it without spending more than the car is worth at a dealership?

There are many things that can go wrong with the system. I hate to say it, but a dealer is the only place with the proper test equipment. Without the proper test equipment, it becomes a guessing game.
