Well you can copy the key all day long, but if you replaced the ignition lock cylinder then the VATSS(vehicle anti theft security system) system will not recognize the resistance needed to start your car. Your new key has to register the same resistance as your old key. Its in the chip on the key. There is two yellow wires in your column that read this. There is 15 different values that it reads. Your can find the values online if you don't have your old key to find out. You can go to radio shack and get the resistor to fuse the two wires together and permanently bypass the coded key resistor. It takes patience to find out the proper resistance and it also takes 10 to 15 minutes to try a new one if the value is wrong. This allows the computer to reset. I spent 10 bucks on a bag of resistors and 50 bucks on a multimeter to narrow it down to the fifteen different resistors to find the right one. It can be done. Good luck.

What does it mean when the security light comes on in a 1994 Camaro?

it usually means the ignition cylinder is going bad. I had it go on one of my camaros and it went in a month, my other camaro its been on 3 yrs and still works. just be aware one day you might turn that key and get nothing. It is usually the wires that control the chip in the key tear away from the lock cylinder.
