Default Security

Ok, i got a 94 SE. I had run the car for a solid 20 minutes and i parked it. I left my neons on and went inside wendeys(yum). I came back out to show a friend my new wires and painted intake so i unlocked the doors then popped the hood showed him then closed it. 2 minutes later i went into the car and attempted to start it. I got noting, not even an attempt. I see the security light on. I was confused so i decided to wait a couple minutes to see if it went off. It did, and the car started fine. I was thinking mabye its that ghetto alloy on the key...but i was wondering if anyone else can tell me what might be triggering that security light to not let my car start? thanks

Default well..

it turns fuel and starter off if you leave the keys in the ignision
PASS key-must me dry and clean
use the wrong key?
will shut down starter and fuel for 3mins
fuses!
if not your vehicle needs service

*summed up from 92 toronado/ trofeo owners manual

**also if the message comes on while your driving do not turn engine off, drive it to place where you can have your vehicle serviced

If it was a one0time occurence, it might have been a little dust in the ignition tumbler, preventing the vats module from 'reading' the resistor pellet correctly. Getting a little canned air sprayed in there might be a good idea, or try to get a cotton swab with alcohol in there to clean the contacts.

If it happens again, let us know.
