if the security light is on it could be the ign lock cylinder, it has two small wires attached to it and one may be broken and are the keys the ones that came with the vehicle

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Buick
A coworker of mine said he had the same problem with a GM product the same year. I tried it and it worked, so simple. All you have to do is pull the headlight switch on and then start the car, let it run for a few minutes and now it works normal.

You will need to have a reputable mechanic do a diagnostic check on the car to determine the problem. This should pull up a code number in your car's computer and help point the mechanic and you in the direction of the malfunctioning part/s.
Just today, I had a diagnostic check done on mine for nearly $45.00. The mechanic was able to figure out the reason why my service engine light was staying on. I knew my car's radiator fans failed to run when car's engine was hot except when the A/C was running. I had changed out the sensors and was never able to get the light to go out or get the fans working. They were able to determine that the 25 amp fuse for the fans located under the hood was blown. After replacing it, the fans worked as they should, my car runs cooler and the engine service engine light is now out. Of course there are many possible reasons why the service engine light may come on including problems with the car's emissions. A reputable mechanic can solve your problem.

Make sure all the fuses are good. Check the fuse panel inside the car and the fuse box under the hood. Find the starter relay and swap it with another one and see if the starter works. If that didn't make any difference, try this:Make sure the transmission is in park, emergency brake on. Turn the ignition key on. Find where the positive battery cable is attached to the starter. Attach one end of a jumper cable to the connection. Take the other end of the jumper cable and ground it against the starter solenoid where the wires are connected. This should start the car, or at least make the starter work.If the car starts but won't stay running, then it is probably the security system at fault. If you went to a dealership for the new switch and keys, you probably paid quite a bit for it.There is a cheaper way to fix it, and it will last forever. It's a bypass system from a company called New Rockies. I think you should check out this website: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass.
