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!

Do you
have the same problem?

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