There ain't no key lock on the driver door. Bought the couple month ago and the guy mess up the inside door panel.

I meant bought the car couple month ago.


I would start looking there to find the issue, you could also try disconecting the battery for a few minutes and see if the system resets.

Is there a chip in the key? If so it could have failed. Do you have another key? If so try it.

Yeah I got chip in key and do have another key roo . The security light still on.

I done try disconnect the battery cable for fews minutes. I even let the ignition key on for ten minutes still not solving the problem.


If you have a digital ohm meter measure the resistance in the 2 chips. If you get a reading then you have a circuit problem somewhere in the security wiring possibly in the column itself. If you don't get a reading then you will have to take it to a shop you trust so they can bypass the security down at the base of the column.

Dude my mom had a 1992 RS and my aunt bought my brother a 1989 RS. My mom was lucky she took hers to a local shop and he made her a new key and by passed security system. My dad had mine taken to idiots that screwed it up worse but then my mom took it to same shop she did hers. They said someone had screwed it up so bad that it had 3 different security systems on it. He didn't do same thing maybe he forgot how he did my mom's idk. However watch U tube video and there is one on there where guy actually ran the wires from starter and ignition and made push to start button bypassing security system altogether. I just got my car back and I am gonna do what he did.
