Hi:
For some reason the security system has shut the engine down. Does your key have a small transister in it? Try a different key if you have one. Also, there is a sensor in the steering column that may have gone bad. If the extra key doesn't help, most likely you will need to take the car to a dealer that has the necessary test equipment.

Let me know what you find.

Joe
