Car Won't Start and Security Light is On on Oldsmobile 98

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.
