Under the hood, in the center of the firewall, there is a large plug, with 10-15 wires on each end. That is your main wiring harness connector. Water is likely getting down through the hood into the connector. Take the connector apart, clean the pins, get Dielectric grease, and pack both connectors with it. Put it back together and that should cure your problem.

1998 toyta tacoma wont start

I know this is too late but, you should never pressure wash an engine without waterproofing all of your electrics. The pressure washer pushes water into places it isn't meant to go. You will need to find where the water has gone, and dry it out. You may be lucky and be able to save your ECU or electric start kit by drying it out properly.

1993 Buick Park Avenue we had a dead battery so we removed and charged it. Now the Car won't start and when I put key in the ignition the security light starts flashing

Any car with a Factory Anti-Theft System does this whenever battery power is lost. If your owners manual doesn't address this, you will have to contact a GM Dealer to get the system reset. Sorry!

Whenever I had this problem, it was always cured with a new set of GOOD spark plug wires. Not generic set off the parts store shelf. Get some moisture removal spray and put it on both ends, the coil and the plug, before putting the wires on. Do one wire at a time so you do not get them mixed up. I do not think you have a distributor or a cap. If you do replace it also as it is over 20 years old.

If you have other key try it. If it still doesn't work the immobilizer has a problem. If you deactivate it anyone with a copy of your key can put it to work. Be sure of what you do.
