With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.

check the fuseble link.
you can measure it, and make sure the contact are clean and secured.
the other thing is the check the ignition switch, make sure you have 12v going to the switch.
check thermo switch on top of the block.

Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

Make sure all the fuses are good. Check the fuse panel inside the car and the fuse box under the hood. Find the starter relay and swap it with another one and see if the starter works. If that didn't make any difference, try this:Make sure the transmission is in park, emergency brake on. Turn the ignition key on. Find where the positive battery cable is attached to the starter. Attach one end of a jumper cable to the connection. Take the other end of the jumper cable and ground it against the starter solenoid where the wires are connected. This should start the car, or at least make the starter work.If the car starts but won't stay running, then it is probably the security system at fault. If you went to a dealership for the new switch and keys, you probably paid quite a bit for it.There is a cheaper way to fix it, and it will last forever. It's a bypass system from a company called New Rockies. I think you should check out this website: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass.
