You should be seeing a steady security light ligt up on the dash what you need to do is below the dask or where the old ignition switch is you should see two grey or white wires you will need to find out what the restiance of the chip was that was in your car before, then go to radio shack and put the resistor between the two wires

Might be the ignition switch itself. Problems with the ignition switch from my own experience I was told by a tecnician is the '92 Buick LeSabre is famous for them. However, it might also just be your battery. Have you tried to have someone jumpstart it? Might take a bit to actually jump it if the battery is pretty drained. If you can, then I would take it right to an AutoZone or someplace before anything else to make sure the battery is still good before you end up stranded somewhere.

Land Rover Discovery 1998.Replaced battery car still won't start.Alarm sound goes off when we try to start the car and the anti-lock comes on.Remote not working after changing remote battery as well.

Disconnect the battery for at least 2 hours. Hold the positive and negative battery leads together for 5 minutes to ensure the car's electrical system is fully discharged.

most important part ; PUT THE IGNITION KEY IN THE IGNITION! but not switched on.

Connect the positive lead. Connect the negative lead in one swift movement. Tighten the clamps.

Leave the vehicle for 15 minutes to pair the chip in the key and the chip in the ignition lock, and reset the Engine Control Module and Immobilizer.

Starter wont ignite

Maybe your security system is causing a problem? There are usually ways to see if starter motor will crank the engine, but, if security system is involved, even if we crank it, it probably still won't start.
I can help with testing if you want to try it, just to see if it will crank?

1995 olds royale 88; fixed fuel pump, starts then shut it off and re start but nothing happens; sat over night, started right up three times in a row but the fourth not a chance; what's wrong?

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, key switch, or a list of other things.

Hi. It sounds like the ignition switch [the place where you put the key] needs to be replaced. Any lock smith can do this, and they can do it where your car is parked. Joe

Key wont comeout of the ignition switch, do i need a new switch?

First, spray a bunch of WD-40 into the key cylinder -- use the red tube which comes with the can to do this -- put something on the floor to catch the oil dripping down.

This has a good chance of solving your problem. After a couple of days, buy some graphite lubricant (Pep Boys) to blow into the key cylinder. Repeat the graphite every month or so for 6 months.
