Its a very common fault with the GDi engine, normally first shows a fault after 60k miles. Fault will also make the engine feel slightly juddery on occasions whilst cruising... either/both Accelerator body or Cam sensor are the usual culprit. Both can be rather expensive.

Probably you need to replace immobiliser which is company manufactured and can be done only by the dealers and the ecu must also be checked. i think it would cost u around $200 by dealer all inclusive.
