this means the anti-theft has been triggered. if you had a remote start put in it is from that. if not than it must be towed to a garage, and be prepared, it's not usually cheap.

What can you do with a 1995 buick lesabre with the secruity light on and car will not start?

When the security light is on you can not start the car. It is a security feature that is designed to prevent a car thief to fail at stealing the car. Ensure the ignition key is clean, then make sure the black chip in the key is centered in key, ensure metal contacts on black chip are clean. Try starting car after security light goes out. A failed attempt will cause the security light to stay on for a few minutes, do not attempt to start car until security light goes out.

The security system prevents unauthorized operation of the car, your system has been tripped, and the car disabled. You will need to reset the security system to start it. If you have the original key you should be able to do it.
