Key symbol usually means an anti theft of some type, but likely that would not contribute to a hesitation when starting. I can almost with certainty say that the two issues are coincidental and not part of the same problem, starting with hesitation could be a myriad of problems battery voltage fule filter fuel pump, ignition coil, ignition module distributor if it has one and on and on. The thing is you can not give such a super vague description and expect someone to come and save your day for you, tell us the real conditions does this happen when warm or cold or both by hesitation what do you mean slow turning or not catching when turning also is this intermittent or consistent issue does the issue occur when the light comes on.....You need to give a little more info if you want your problems solved for free....

I suggest you try one of those instant download manuals. My nephew bought one for me when my car broke and we could fix it all by ourselves with the manual costing $10. This website is very good for this.
?Try it.

Abs warning light keeps coming

When you start any vehicle motor ALL dash
lights should go out & stay out

You know you have check light on,malfunction
indicator lamp,& should know that you have to check
for codes with a day or two & resolve ALL issues within
a few days to a week or stop using any vehicle that has fault codes

You won't likely get a free code reading at parts store with the ABS
You will need professional scan tool software,then go to
Enhanced Mode,then to the ABS Module, for the codes

Then you need a repair shop with a data base or factory manuals at home to work on it (diagnose)

Could be many things. Take the vehicle to a place like Autozone. They will hook an OBDII reader up to your truck. This will read a specific code. Let us know what the code is, we can go from there. The code will start with Pxxxx

If you find a red key flashing it means that the car has got antitheft system fitted. Is your car alarmed? What about the key, has it got a remote?
