I disagree. If you have a key that starts the car then the immobilisor is good. A new remote can be easily programmed, and a new key can too.

This is about to be rather lengthy, so I apologize in advance. I traded for a 98 Firebird on April 19th. Already broke down. The problem doesn't lie within the engine or transmission however. What...

Sounds like the electrical part of the ignition switch, not the lock cylinder that needs replacing.
Possible also that cutting that wire to the security module immobilized it.

Installed new ignition switch, programed sys,but starter disabled ,remove key, checked fusses, battery.

If this is a new ignition for an auto parts store the key that came with it is not programmed to start the car. You actually have to take that key to the dealer and have one cut for your ignition.
