Someone tried to steal my 2002 monte broke ignition. security light comes on cant start car can i disable it to get the car started

You have two choices, you can purchase a new ignition lock cylinder (costs between 150-200 at most any part store) and take it to a lock smith with your original key to have the pins changed to where your key operates the new lock cylinder. And then have it changed out. Or you can take your car to a mobile audio store that installs aftermarket remote start systems and have them bypass the PassLock anti theft system. Cost should be about the same either way, may be just a but cheaper for the bypass, but then your car will be more vulnerable. If the PassLock had been bypassed when they attempted to steal it, it might be gone right now.

Put new key ignition in my 1999 and it will not program to turn over and start the vehicle

Is because the ignition/column and theft module do not match, or maybe damaged theft system during the attempted theft of truck. You can bypass tho.

Someone tried to steal my 2000 ford mustang, they messed up with ignition switch, the locksmith put a new ignition lock with new key, but was not able to program the new key, the theft light blinks...

Disconnect battery for at least 2 hours.
Hold negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes.
PUT KEY IN THE IGNITION, but not turned on.
Connect POSITIVE lead.
Connect negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for chip in ignition switch and chip in the key to be recognised by the ECM.
Start the vehicle.

Just turn the key on, if that doesn't reset it you have a failed part and will need the help of the dealer

Blinking security light on a Saturn. Have done the 15 minute wait, and it wokrs, but now it is constant, to where it is now 30-45 minutes. Can I disengage this option?

Your ignition key may be excessively worn. The tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder read a worn key as someone trying to steal the vehicle. Have a new key made.

You'll need a new ignition switch. After installation, the dealer can either reprogram your old keys or you can buy a new key and have it programmed.
