Ignition control module can cause the security light to come on, and the throttle position sensor can cause both the check engine light and traction control light to come on. If the check engine light and traction control go out after it starts then I would lean towards possibly a bad cluster. The cluster being bad could cause any light to come on whenever and it will also trip the security system, and prevent the car from starting.
