This problem can be associated with many things. First thing to check is plugs, rotor and timing. Check the spark plugs to see if they are dirty or fouled up. Then pull the distributor cap and check the rotor for burnt or fouled ends also check the electrode tips in the cap. If you have noticed your gas mileage going down these would most likely be the problems. If not check your fuel pump relay and fuel filter. If those are good and you are not having gas mileage issues the next most common culprit could be a ignition relay or coil that is starting to go bad. Most of the time a general tune up and timing check will fix a cold start issue.

Will not start

Hi, im sensing a problem with the ignition switch itself. i would check the wires leading to the switch and make sure they are nice and tight. if the wires are ok, the switch itself may need to be replaced.

Security light stays on, and car won't start.

leave key in "ON" position (not start) for EXACTLY 10 MINUTES! As SOON as the light shuts off, turn key and start key.

Every time you put key in, turn and start right away, DO NOT HESITATE.

There is a problem with the car's computer causing this problem IN ALL GM VEHICLES.
