Default My car won't turn over!!! Help!

I own a 93 Bonneville SSE and I drove it to work today and it was fine and drove it home and it was fine. I just went to go move it and when I went to start it it wouldn't turn over at all. It started to turn but wouldn't. It could be the starter but don't starters give warning signs before they go out? It reads inflatible restraint after I leave the key on, what does that mean? Someone help because I had this car 2 weeks now and I don't have a clue what '* going on.

Clean the chip in the key and then give it a try - damn security systems anyway.

explain this without contradicting yourself. did the starter turn at all/for how long?

When you turn the key it starts to fire but doesn't turn over. Everything sounds fine but it just won't turn over.

Ok! I went back out and tried it again. When I try to start and I give it some gas it starts but then again dies. When it does start it'* not a healthy start it sounds like it'* starving for gas. The car does have gas in it. It may looks like it'* fuel related. I hope not! It could be the fuel pump, the fuel sending unit or anything. Give me some feedback please.

Yes! It starts to start but doesn't fully turn over. If I put my foot on the gas it will start but it sounds like it'* hesitant like it'* not getting any gas. Once I let my foot off it will die again. The service engine light has been on since I had it too.

Sounds like ignition, check to see if you have spark at all the cylinders. At this point it could be a bunch of things.
You better figure out a way to work.
