try starting your car again but do not turn the key off if it does not start. leave it on and in exactly ten minutes, (during this time your security light should be blinking), the light will stop blinking or turn off. simply turn your key off then and try to start again. it should start. i have done this many times and it works. to fix you can go to repair shop and they will tell you that it could be the ignition switch, $300-$400, or the injector control box that gets its ok signal from the ignition switch saying is the proper key. security. the injector control box costs $700-$775. of course the shop will say both need to be replaced.$1000-$1100. if you find a good shop $300 plus labor.. bull. get it started and go to a shop that installs remote starters, great for wis winters or texas summers!!! this system allows you to start your car, still locked, from in the house getting it cool or warm. the system bypasses the ignition injector problem on the alero for $350 or less. had mine done and two windows tinted for $325. hope this helps

if your security light is not blinking then i would look at the crank sensor. common problem. if mechanical can do yourself.
