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.

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 . .
