Some how you have activated the anti-thieft system, using the key try locking then unlocking the drivers door, if that don't work try the passenger door, if that still don't do it then push the 7/8 9/0 buttons on the keyless pad, then unlock it using the code if you car had the keyless pad. If none of that works then you can try disconnecting the battery negative terminal, turn on the headlight switch, wait for at least 30 seconds, turn off the headlight switch, reconnect the battery cable and try it, if it still does it then you will have to go to the dealer so they can access the security system and find out what circuit has triggered the system's drive shut down.
