Sound like you are heading towards a very expensive ignition switch replacement from the dealership. My grandfather'* bonneville had the exact same symptoms a few weeks before his car would not start at all.

Youse guys are just full of good news today.

Still on. Guess I'll let it go for a while and see if it goes out. If not, off the the Dealer/Rapist.

I don't know if this is bad but our security light has been on constantly for MONTHS. I cleaned the contacts and keys the best I could. It always comes on when the car is on.

any suggestions for this other than clean it?

I know how to fix this problem. Having become an artist at taking out the clusters...pull the darn cluster...yank the bulb behind security and call it a day....that leaves a ton of time for BEEEEEER

I never remove those lights...but around 2am with no sleep for a couple days...it sounded pretty funny.

Although..they might not start..the light would still be off if they take out the bulb...lol

Hey, how much is "pretty expensive" to replace the lock cylinder?

I'm waiting with baited breath (Sushi for lunch).

More than you want to spend to fix a light on the dash. My parents lock cylinder went bad last year. $400, and the tech put the wrong one in, so the next day he had to switch it, with one that broke two days later.

Yea, it ran my grandfather about $600 for the lock cylinder and 2 new keys. Horrible ***-raping for a simple lock cylinder if you ask me. There is no reason for it to cost that much.
