Not really a job for a non-mechanic. Column covers off, switches out of the way, wiring disconnected, column dropped down under the dash, bolts chiseled out, big job.

I suspect you mechanical ignition switch if faulty. This is located on top of the steering column by the drivers feet. Disconnect battery to prevent activation of airbag .Remove the panel under the steering wheel and the nuts or bolts holding the column to the dash. Lower the column and you will see a rectangular box mounted on top that has a wiring harness on the driver side and a metal rod out of the top. This is the mechanical switch that I believe is bad. Mark the location with a scribe or sharp metal point along 2 sides. Remove mount screws, unplug harness, and carefully remove metal rod from bottom of switch. Install metal rod in new switch, making sure the rod moves freely and does not bind up. Remount switch, aligning with the marks you made on the column. Put key in lock cylinder and test operation of the switch by turning fully to the start position, watching that metal rod for movement and return of switch to normal operating position. If you have it aligned correctly you will see the rod move as you turn the key to the start position and move as you release the key. Plug in the wire harness and and reinstall column, then panel and reconnect battery.
Hope this helps!!

1990 cadillac seville wont start, it say starting disabled, what can i do to try and make this go away?

sounds like your going to have to replace the ignition tumbler,that is if your key has the small chip in it mounted in rubber,if you would like to disable it for good you can just buy another cylinder with key and plug it into the harness under the dash that runns up to your current tumbler and just put the key in the on position in the new tumbler and just tuck the whole thing up under your dash and the car will think the key is in the ignition and disable the alarm and your normal key will just start the car as normal,hope this helps

My car alarm goes off when I unlock, then open the car door. (with key, since the fob was lost more than a year ago). When the alarm stops and I try to start the car the alarm goes off again. Cannot...

You will need to find a push button or valet switch (hidden somewhere under the dash), This will help you in turning off the alarm. Once you find this button, turn the ignition key to the run position, do not try to start the vehicle, and push down button for about 3 to 5 seconds this will shut alarm off. Good Luck.

If the security light is flashing when that happens, you need to turn the key to the ON position, and let it sit for 10 minutes, so it can reset the security code. Start it up as normal and let it idle for 5 minutes.
