Why is it that when trying to start your Bonneville the security light comes on not allowing the car to start and then you have to wait 3 minutes to try again?

Put the key in and turn it to the "On" position, but don't start it.
The security light should stay lit for about 10 seconds then go out.
If that happens then the VATS (Vehicle Anti-Theft System) system (little resistor chip in your key) is functioning properly.
If it doesn't work just like that, then VATS should be disabling the car and it won't even crank.

If this sounds like your problem, you could disable the VATS altogether (http://vats.likeabigdog.com/)

WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT HOURS, YOU DIVIDE BY NUMBER OF MINUTES BY 60. SO 400 MINUTES EQUALS 6 HOURS AND 40 MINUTES

If you are trying to bypass the security system you must first disconnect the battery for ten minutes, reconnect, turn key for one minute, remove key for ten seconds, and then try to start it. If that does not work, put the key back in, turn it for a minute, and then take it out for ten seconds and try to start it.

I think what you meant is: Is 30 minutes the same as half an hour? If that was what you were trying to say then, yes... 30 minutes does equal a half an hour.

There are four of these actuators in my 2000 Bonneville which has dual automatic temp controls. They are labeled: Air Mix Driver, Air Mix Passenger, Air Inlet, and Mode on HVAC Schematic. It would be necessary to know which one of these you were trying to remove.

If you are trying to protect your home, a security camera can help. Generally for self protection a gun, tazer or mace works well. Security cameras can be pricy.

No internet security does not protect system 100% of the time although they are trying to prevent as many intrusions as possible. It is always important to protect all your important information and always protect to see if someone has or is trying to hack into your system.

That little black chip with the metal contact point in your key has to be in center of key and the contact points should be clean. If security light goes on and car doesn't start don't keep trying to start it, wait about 3 minutes for security light to turn off, and clean the contact points on the chip in the key and you should make sure it is not shifting to one side of the key.

A "Federal number" is really a Federal Employers Identification Number, or FEIN. It's like a social security number for businesses. You can call the IRS and get one for free, and within minutes. So if anyone is trying to charge you for one, that's a scam.

Yes. The security guard is in the Clown Store trying to cheer himself up, because he feels guilty about letting "The Scream" get stolen. You need his timecard to check the security video at the museum.

The built in security system thinks someone is trying to steal the car. Remove key, walk away and try again in about 30 minutes with the right key, it should reset itself.

Wait for the fuel to evaporate for a couple of minutes before trying to start it.

It depends upon your culpability. Are you simply a witness, or are you an accomplice that "aids and abets" the crime?
