Buy a new lock cylinder with wire on it and plug it into the connector of orange wire at the lower part of steering column just under dash. Put your old chip key in new cylinder, this will complete circuit. Start car with a copy of original key or extra key that you may have, no chip key needed now in old cylinder. Secure new cylinder under dash hidden out of sight.

You have a broken wire in the steering column. there are ways to cheat, but to fix it right, the dealer is the best option. Cost will probably be in the 400 dollar range for a new ignition tumbler, install, and programming.

Cadillac seville won't start

I've got an even cheaper and easier solution, instead of buying a new cylinder, find that plug and snip the orange wires going to the old cylinder.Then remove the resistor chip from the key and solder each of the the wires to each side. this will fool the car into thinking the correct resistor chip is in place, allowing you to use the original key or any copies with or without resistor chips. i just did this to my caddy and it roared to life! :)

Yes you can bypass it or replace the ignition lock cylinder. The contacts are bad in the cylinder. Let me know if you want me to tell you how to bypass it.

I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me

Starter disabled due to theft system

the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out
