The wires to the ignition switch are broken. Ignition switch should be replaced or VATS system can be by-passed.Check with car alarm installers. This is cheaper than replacing switch, but you will lose anti theft system. It is possible that the resistor in the key itself has been damaged. A dealer would be able to make you a new key. Make sure you have your VIN number in case they need to contact GM to get the key codes. hello i had a Buick tech fix it at the bottom of the steering column 40 dollars instead of 400 for keys and ignition

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.

Possible a bad computer chip on your car igition key or you may have to get a mechanic to reset the sequrity code for you. Try a different ignition key before you do anything else.

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.
