SOURCE: Car won't start

Check the lever for putting the car in park/drive.
If the switch/sensor that detects where it is at (i.e. P, R, N, D, 2, 1) is broken or loose, it may think the car is not in Park and cars with automatic transmissions will not start unless they are in Park.
It might also be the starter is bad.

SOURCE: my 1997 pontiac bonneville will not turn over.

Either dead battery or bad fusible link. Charge the battery and if the lights do not come back, then check the fusible links (usually near the starter).

SOURCE: Placed new key in ignition and the the security

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it will gradually prevent the car to start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , this has been the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

Radio problems


Your radio and accessories have a feature called delayed exit, the way it works is the options like radio will keep working as long as a door isn't opened, you either have a door switch that is always on or a delayed exit module problem, this is part of the main Body Control Module aka BCM. do the interior lights work?

If you cannot hear the starter motor, check fuses, there can be a broken contact to motor or ignition barrel faulty.
