I got a lot of information about this security stuff from this website. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ When mine started acting up, i did a bypass on it. It was alot cheaper than a dealer mechanic. If you are looking to fix it correctly, I think taking it to the dealer is the best way to go, like said in above post.... Good luck

My 1998 pontiac firebird security light is on and will not start. What do I do?


Usually the sensor in the key lock is not reading the chip in the key, or the chip has failed.
I would try a spare key first. If the light stays on with both keys, you'll need to get the anti-theft system checked out.

I have a 94 pontiac firebird the security light comes on now i wait 3 minutes and it will start sometimes i have to wait 2or3 times to get it to start when the light is on it does nouthing


(from autostalk.com)
I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is, if you have the keys with
the small 'computer chip' on the black plastic part then your car is
equipped with a sensor in the ignition (where you actually put the key
into) that is supposed to be able to sense the key, to make sure its
the real key. In many cases, the wires from this sensor become loose or
faulty and will trip that light.
