you can reset the system by turning key to on position for 5-10 mins and then try starting it but its probably a short or grounding prob try the engine to chassis ground

I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

if the theft light is was flashing on you, put the key in the ignition and turn all the way until the instrument cluster lights up, just don't start the car. leave it like that for aprox. 10 min. or until light goes out. when that happens, turn of(don't take out keys) and try to start car. hope it works.
