I can think of a lot of things it could be, but I think you should get the codes from the computer first, even though the check engine light may not be on there could be some in memory,,most parts store will do this for free, write them down and come back and we will try to help.

well i figured out it was the theft system on the car. sometimes when i get out of the car and lock the doors it beeps like there is an alarm on it but i dont have a beeper so i cant disable it. i dont know how to fix this i have just seen some posts online about how to disable it anyone know how to fix problem?

communication between key chip,lock cylinder,and module under dash.must not be broken or it thinks a wrong key or theft. will bring a light on to warn of break ! that's why a clean lock cylinder is a must and looseness can break circuit. bypass can be made or purchased in the correct signal . .
