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.

you will have to take it to the dealer or a shop that does a lot of GM work. without a scanner and codes and service manual, you will not fix it.

The problem is not your computer. The problem is a defective PassLock cylinder. It is not reading your key correctly. The lock cylinder for your ignition reads a chip in your key and sends a digital signal to the computer to let the computer know that a valid key is being used to turn the ignition on. (This keeps some jerkwad from stealing your car by breaking the lock cylinder and starting the engine with a screwdriver.) When the security light starts flashing and the engine will not start, it is because the ignition switch was turned on and everything powered up but the passlock system did not read a valid key code. Replacing the passlock cylinder should fix your problem. This is pretty common.

sorry this is a dealer fix. but it could be as simple as programing a new key.
or it may need a new imoblizer module.
