Security Problem

Someone tell me if this seems odd.

I went to start the car, but it would not turn over. Then the starter wasnt even doing anything. Shortly after, the LCD dash read "Service theft detterent system". Then it finally started after hitting the unlock on the key fab. Then a service engine light appeared. Then the words "CAL" appeared above where the temperature is displayed. I also noticed my remote start not working. After driving for an hour and half it displays "calibration complete" and the engine light is gone once I restarted the car and remote start is restored. Wierd or just a fluke?

Sounds like it got stuck in a security relearn for some reason. Let us know if it happens again?

If it does I will post up for sure. It just decided to want to relearn itself I guess, mind of its own! But still, really odd....
