If the anti theft light is coming on, the system is shutting down the engine. I hate to say it but you need to take it to a dealer to have the problem diagnosed. They are the only ones with the proper test equipment.

Ok thank you. I will do this tomorrow since service departments are closed on sundays. And I will type you back and let you know what was said. Again thank you.

Im having the exact same problem. Red theft light will start to flash and car will shut off. But will always start back up. Have you found a solution to the problem?
