your theft lock system is disabling the car there is a chip in the key tumbler you can have the key tumbler replaced but its very expensive some car stereo install places can put in a theftlock bypass this will fix your problem perminantly. If you search on the internet you can find the reset procedure for the theftlock system i believe you have to disconnect the battery three times for a minimum of ten minutes each time then the car should work normal for a while but it will eventually fail again.
