If you leave the key in the "ON" position for 10-15 minutes it should re-set the security system, when the security light goes off you should be able to start the vehicle. If this is a persistent problem you will probably have to change out the exciter ring that is on the end of the ignition lock cylinder. Your local GM dealer sells a kit that comes with a new lock cylinder with exciter ring and everything, but you only need to have the exciter ring changed. This is the part that reads the chip in the key and sends the information to the computer.

I would go after the door lock first. Older fords have a switch on the door lock that disables the alarm. They tend to break and fall though. I have replaced them with a momentary on/ff switch.But the alarm would go off when opening the door. On some older ones(85,87)(no keypad) I could disconnect the security module and it did just fine.

There is a problem detected within the security system by the security module. Try locking and unlocking the door with the key fob to reset the system.

I was checking the fuses on my Venture and now it wont start up.

You may have removed the fuse for theecurity system. When you turn the key to start, does the security light start to flash? If it does the security system will need to be reset. Most GM's reset is to leave the key in the run position after you try to start it. It usually takes 30 min in this position to reset. Some times you need to try to start it and leave the key in the run position for 10 min, off and back to the run position for a total of 3 times and on the last time its off go straight to start it position. I have found it by googling resetting security system venture van. Good luck.
