Would definitely be attacking the electrical connections with a wirebrush, start at the other end of the black cable, what connects to the chassis, and to the engine to make sure they pull 300 CCA without bursting into flame~

You're ignition key has a "chip" on it. That "chip" is a resistor that contacts two metal tangs inside the lock cylinder when the key is inserted. My '94 Cadillac has the same security system. GM called it VATS (Vehicle Anti Theft System). There were 15 different possible resistance values used. Your car's computer reads the resistance value to determine if the correct key is being used. Make sure the "chip" on the key is clean and dry. When my '94 Cadillac had the "passkey fault" light come on I had to replace the ignition lock cylinder. This is the most likely culprit because the tangs inside the lock cylinder wear over time and stop making the proper connection with the "chip' on the key. HTH. -Jim
