Recommend you install the fix detailed at the webpage:
I have done this successfully in the past and believe it will fix your problem for a small cost. You will need a soldering gun or iron, an ohmmeter, and some knowledge of electronics. If you are not comfortable with the instructions, perhaps you have a friend that can help you.

Security light stays on. Why doesn't it start sometimes?

The warning light means the computer is not accepting the chip in the key as being the right key. Could be a problem with the key or the sensor in the lock cylinder, or the anti-theft system.

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is faulty. You can find a great write-up here: , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

1997 Buick Le Sabre will not start somtimes

My wife has a 96 we had a similar problem. I believe that the connectors on the chip that is in the ignition key are worn out. The manual said that it is a safety feature on the car if someone tries to use a different key in the ignition or tries to punch it, it disables the car for like 3 minutes. We had a spare ignition key and switched to that and haven't had the problem since. Hope that solves your problem.
