Try this,remove key from igntion,then remove the positive cable from battery for about ten minutes,then put key in car to the on position and then replace battery cable,should reset the anti theft.

I will say this to,usually if it were a antitheft system problem,it would not start at all,im thinking you may have a clogged fuel filter making it run bad and causing the light to come on.
