SOURCE: car won't start
yes, the security system will cut fuel to the cylinders or stop the car from cranking. what you can do is called a 30 minute re-learn. have everything turned off and a charger hooked up to the battery if possible, put the key in and attempt to start, release key to the run position and let it sit for about 10 minutes or untill the security light goes out. turn key off for 5 seconds and repeat the process 2 more times. after the process is done 2 more times the car should have re-learned the key and it should start. if it still doesn't start the problem might be somewhere else in the security system but try the 30 minute re-learn first. i can assist you with this problem further if needed as i have excellent resources.
hope it starts for ya!

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 fuel. Don't rely on your gauge, and if in doubt add some fuel just to make sure there is enough to start the car. Try to start the car and if it still doesn't start you know that fuel isn't the problem.
Make sure your car is in Park and the emergency brake is set.
Look closely at your dash board when you attempt to start the car. If your lighted panels don't come on or are very dim then it is likely that you are dealing with a dead battery. Either use a battery tester or simply hook the battery up to a charger or use jumper cables to hook up to another car battery in order to charge the battery enough to start the car. After you charge the battery if your car still won't start you may be dealing with a bad starter.
Call a mechanic to find out if there are any other possibilities before you purchase and replace the starter.
