    every know and then the security light comes on and engine won't crank over. Have to wait gor a while before it will start. Any insight to what the problem would be. I have no clue. It is a 1990 Deville coupe
    Thanks

    It's probably a passkey/vats problem.

    Check ur key pellet for corrosion... Seen this once
    Did u change or order new keys
    Did u change steering column or have key ignition repair
    Did u Change ur IC (instrument cluster)

    I'd check codes and all related fuses and battery terminals

    Low voltage causes problems

    Im not a Northstar pro but Jus Offering suggestions

    year - make - and model would be helpful -

    if you have a chip on your key -
    use a pencil eraser and clean the key and chip -
