Yes, should be checked out, may be as simple as resetting a code, but a scan of the ECM will let you know.

May be in the security system. May have to be reset or turned off. Or there may be a burnt fuse to supply power to the ECM and the ALDL test port.

Probably the dealership would be the best bet.
