Hi, a problem like this will require a diagnosis. There are too many possible things that can cause the engine to stop running. You'll need to have an experienced mechanic look at this.

If a red dot lights up on the console, it is the security feature loccking you out. This indicates a problem with the communication between the key and the skim(?) module or possibly the ignition. The chip in the key is probably not communicating correctly with the receiver (I believe they call it the skim module)that tells the ignition that you have the correct key. Sometimes this is accompanied by an issue with the key also not even turning in the ignition. Usually a good whack on the ignition (with the key inserted) with small rubber hammer or a shoe is enough to get the tumblers inside the ignition to release correctly to be able to turn the key.
