Have you tried installing a new battery in your key fob? A weak or dead battery in the key fob can sometimes cause problems in communication with the vehicle and trigger the anti-theft. Any faults stored in the vehicles computer systems can be read with a professional scanner and a vehicle of your year should be able to communicate any concerns. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and take a closer look at your anti-theft system to offer a more personal diagnosis.
