Question about Cars & Trucks
On your Buick 94.
The problem is the ANTI THEFT SYSTEM..
If you have replaced the ignition switch.
If you are using a NEW KEY, the car won't start.
Because in the OLD KEY, is there a Resistence with a number of ohm's
The computer need the resistence to activate the the signals to operate the vehicle.
OK.. with the New Key and Old Key you can go to any Aloha Smith and they will remove the Chip from the Old Key to the New Key.
And the car must start and running.
But if you are using the Same Key that you have before the repair made.
I recomend to check the 2 Orange wires from the Ignition lock Cylinder to the steering column lower connectors.
Ok I hope this work for your problem.
Any moree info, I will glad to help you.
I'm a Mechanic and have all the repair information for all the cars.
Thank you for use fixya...

Sounds like a RFID issue. Your key most likely has a chip inside of it. Most of the time people will have multiple keys on their key chain that can cause interference with the receiver in your steering column. Try using the one ignition key to start.

The C0474 code refers to a steering angle sensor located at or near the base of the steering column. Check where the steering column goes through the front of dash and verify the connector is fully seated and locked.
The sensor gets its voltage from the ABS module.
Let me know if it is clean, locked and seated. Make sure there are no pushed out or bent terminals on the connector.
Check this first and we can go from there.

your ignition switch is bad for now though turn your key on for at least ten minutes until the light stops flashing this will reset your security system after stops flashing turn key off and then start the truck
