93 / SECURITY LIGHT

1993 Pontiac Bonneville • 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic • 185,000 miles

93 Pontiac Bonneville, my security light flashes and my car will not start it might take minutes, hours, or days for it to start. When the light is still and not flashing it will start and while im driving the light stays on. I have had the car for 8yrs. And have never had this problem and didn't know that it had security on it. Someone tried to steal it and I had to put another steering collar on it and replace the blinker switch on it. Then I started having this problem, can someone please help!

They had broke it on the left below the blinkers so they can use a screw driver to start it and thats how I had to start it before I got it fixed

I guess they broke the steering column, the guy who fixed it said I needed a new steering column cause u can see the switch on left below the turn signal and I was able to use a screw driver and push it down to start my car

Since you used parts sounds like you brought the problems from the car you got the parts off of.
