You may have to get the dealer to re-install the theft deterrent processor.

SOURCE: How can I bypass a anti auto theft system on my 1990 cadillac seville?

I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer

disconnect your battery wait 30 seconds then reconnect and it wll start for sure. if not get a new or clean your old key and make sure it is dry then try again. I have dealt with this a hundred times an think it has to do with worn chips on the keys/bad sensor in the ignition.

Replace the battery in the remote, then reset the system.

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

It is having a hard time reading your chip in your key. I have the same problem on my 99. You can get them replaced but there not cheap.

94 cadillac deville...car will not start or turn over because the security light blinks on and off. had a new key made at the dealer and performed the relearn procedure..I put the key in the RUN position...


As the prescribed method isn't working it would seem likely the antitheft system is broken and should be checked by a professional.

Electronics aren't bulletproof and at over 20 years old the ones fitted to your car are 20 years less robust and 20 years less sophisticated and easily damaged by such things as welding, battery charging, jump starting or even nearby lightning strikes. Such instances often do not cause obvious damage immediately but rather have a weakening effect so the final breakdown happens later, maybe years later.
