If you want a quick way to fix it run a wire from your starter in to the car another from the battery into the car and get a start button its quick easy i had the same problem.

89 firebird anti theft code won't let car start

If code 53 involves the PASS system for your car, the chip in the key has failed, or the sensor in the lock cylinder, or the control module.
The anti-theft system disables the starter and the fuel injectors. You could bypass those circuits to get the car started.

I am currently diagnosing a problem with a 1992 Pontiac firebird 305 engine. Apparently numrous persons have worked on this vehicle. It has factory installed chip on the ignition key and someone has...

Some of these anti theft security distress can shut offfuel to the injectors. This might be what's happening. Check out this link for info on the security system. There is a way to bypass the entire system. Right now you have bypassed the key and ignition part, but the TDM (theft deterrent module) is still there. This is the computer that runs the security system and might be giving you problems.

I have lost my keys to my 1991 pontiac firebird my key has the chip in it for the anti thft system is the a way to bypass the security system so I can replace the lock with a standard ingition lock

there is a way I've seen it done but never have done it myself. That "chip" is like a resistor for the anti theft system. When I asked the guy how he bypasses it, he stated, "I find the correct resistance needed, then add a resistor in line so that it bypasses the ignition switch." This way the orginal keys will work even if they don't have the "chip." Now the vechile he did that on he still had the key with the chip. The chip or ignition cylinder wasn't contacting each other so it would sometimes run and sometimes wouldn't. So I don't know if he tested the key or if there is a different way. I know this isn't much help but I KNOW it can be done.

The dealer is right...the 89 firebird did not come with a chipped key antitheft system. You should never have had a key with a chip to begin with.
