Does the security light (car with key) flash in the instrument cluster?

Try a different key.

The Immobilizer turns the engine off after the engine is started, if it does not recognize the chip in the key.

Make sure the engine battery is not low on charge, as trying to start the engine with a weak battery can cause
similar symptoms.
