I suspect you have an issue with the theft system not allowing you to start the car. The engine power reduced and bogging can be many things. You should get the air bag system looked at too. Sounds like you've been neglecting getting your car into the shop to see a mechanic. No quick easy fix for you at this point. Time to take it in for a diagnosis and repair to get you back on the road if you need it to get around.

I had it in the shop a cpl months when i had my recalls done and they couldn't give me a strong answer.. I had a diagnostics ran and they said the o2 sensors are signaling and it could be anything from needing a tune up, changing the sensors, the wiring harness to my ecm or my bcm.. and i paid for the relay fuse to be replaced and their answer was that thatll fix it..that's a certified chevy dealership.. also they had no clue for the anti theft... so I left it at that..
