Turn key to run position and leave it there for about 10 mins.......or until security light goes out.
Car should start then.
Also......try another key.....the reader in the lock cylinder may like it better.

91 cadillac devile won't start. dash, radio & powers work

These early 90's vehicles had alot of problems with the antitheft systems. When they fail, they actually cut power to the starter or injectors. Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. You see this light, go to this link for answers.

Swapped 305 out to 350. Won't start with key have to bypass ignition

I guess I would start with scanning the computer for trouble codes to see whats going on with the check engine light.
Might be a blown fuse or wiring problem that is affecting both warning lights.

My car has all the juice but when turn it over it won't even try to start but lights and dash all light up it says security in the message box it was very rainy yesterday when the problem began

I have this same issue - I've researched it to death. I've been told it everything from the BCM (body control module aka computer) to a bad ignition switch to a loose ground. The cost to getting it fixed runs into the hundreds of dollars. Fortunately it comes and goes and is not a permanent fault on my Impala. The security indicator lights because the computer thinks the car is being stolen. I swapped keys and it does seem to help but it still crops up now and then. The easy solution is to turn the key to the off position and (this is very important) wait no less than 10 minutes. Turn the key and your vehicle should start. 10 minutes is the time it takes the system to reset. During that 10 minutes reset period don't open the doors or turn the key at all. Hope this works for you as it continues for me.

Do you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT? Disconnecting your battery can trigger your antitheft system.

Here is a link about the security.

It won't stay started

Starts for five seconds or less then dies? Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or has a picture of a car with a padlock thru it? If so, this link will help you out. If no lights illuminated on dash, repost for further help.

My security light on the dash won't turn off in

Sound like the ANTI-THEFT system or PASS-LOCK system is armed; in your Cadillac Owners Manual (need yahoo register for free) could find this and other details...



Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).
