Its your ignition switch. Its not recognizing when you turn it to the start position. The little terminals inside the switch get burned and wear down. When mine went out, the whole power to the dash would flicker, even cut out when driving. I actually wired my system to 1 toggle switch for on and off, I kept the anti theft wires attached to the switch. I also have a starter switch, if I fail to turn the key like I'm trying to start the car, the theft light comes on and the car dies right after starting.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on
Do you hear the air pump run when you start the car? No? Check the A.I.R. pump fuse in the under hood fusebox. if it is blown then you probably need a new air pump motor. If the fuse is not blown then the relay could be the culprit. if you can hear the pump running when you start it the engine then you probably just have some wiring issues from the relay to the ecm it can still work ok but fail the resistance test that the computer runs randomly. Give some more info and I'll help you through this.
Please rate this response , and let me know if ya need more help!

Is the Security light flashing??? If so, the security system (passlock II) is ******** off the fuel because the car thinks it is being stolen. If the security light is flashing, leave the key in the "on" position for about 10 minutes and it will stop flashing. Then turn the car off and try to start like you normally would.

iam not sure but the most common culprit is a bad ignition switch. if the switch goes bad then no power will get to the gauges etc. check switch.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy malibu abs light
If the ABS light comes on, then there is definitively a problem that must be corrected. The ABS light turns on for a number of reasons. If the problem started after replacing brake pads and sensors it is usually because of sensor wiring. When abs light is on it means that diagnostic trouble codes are stored in the car computer modules (in both ECM that is the main computer, and also in ABS control module).
If you have done the brake service recently, get back to the garage that did the job and ask them doing a code scanning. Possibly go there while the ABS light is on. The codes will reset after turning on the ignition a number of times if the problem is not there anymore. Wiring problems often manifest themselves only occasionally in consequence of vibration. That is likely your case.
Note: when you go to the dealer for the code scanning mention that the problem started after the repair or you will be charged the standard fee for code scanning (usually half hour labor). Mention that the ABS module may need scanning for codes and go there when ABS light is on. They will use a Tech 2 scanner to pull out ABS codes. A regular OBDII scanner will only retrieve codes from main computer.
