Right, you have a VATS/PASSkey problem. The solidly-lit Security light indicates that the car couldn't measure the correct resistance through the chip in your ignition key. Try a second key, if you have one; if not, you'll need to get one, or give your current one a good cleaning on the little chip contacts. (Try a clean pencil eraser.)
If there'* an Ace Hardware or similar near you, they (and most locksmiths, I assume) will have a "PASSkey Interrogator" that should identify which of the 15 possible resistance values is in the chip in your key, and cut you a replacement. You can always go to the dealer, but it'll cost you.
If that doesn't work, the problem may be dirty/worn contacts within the ignition key cylinder in the steering column.
Yes, with some gymnastics you can get into the dash and cut in a resistor of the correct value to bypass the ignition key in that circuit, but hopefully it won't come to that (since among other things, it'll defeat the hotwiring protection of the system).
