sounds like an security issue try disconnecting the battery for 15 - 30 minutes. this will reboot the entire cars electronic systems. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU HAVE THE STEREOS security code. Sorry for the caps just wanted to make sure you caught that before doing this. once the car has rebooted this should have fixed the issue if not try checking the air flow temperature sensor it may be dirty.
