The security light indicates the car does not sense the resistor in the key (The small black chip at the base of the key.)
Try your spare key. If you don't have a spare take proof of ownership to any GM dealer and from the VIN they should be able to make you a new key

    If it is a Pass III system like my 1999 Buick LeSabre. It means the key is weak. When my car was four years old this happened with all my keys at once. I found in the manual it stated if chip fell out system would reset immediately instead of 2 or 3 minutes. I bought a key from Sears identically cut to my GM but blank no chip to reset the system. When I tried it the car started and I bought four more keys and have used them since. ( 8 yrs) They cost $1.29 each, and have never left me waiting in a cold car again.

Do it for cheaper. this guy has the answer.....http://newrockies.ca/?ap_id=judd0081 Trust me, i just did it on my buick regal. took about 2 hours, saved over 500 bucks. This not starting issue has been a problem for a year for me. Temperary fix, turn your key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, wait ten minutes. turn it back then forward again to start.

Looks like the TDM/BCM in the security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it can get worse till the car wont start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


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.
