MERCURY SABLE IGNITION LOCK PROBLEM

1996 Mercury Sable • 100,000 miles

Ignition locked down had to use a drill bit to get it out. Replaced ignition with one that did not have a key with a chip. Car security light came on and car would start then a few seconds later would die. Went back and bought an ignition with a chip and put it in, I did everything I was supposed to and reprogrammed key. Now security light still on and car will run for a few seconds then die. Is there anyting I can do to get my car to run I've already spent 700. Dollars on it and can not afford to spend any more. Can you please help?Tony D.

How did you programm it? Ford is the only one who can release the security.
