Default no start, no crank condition when attempting to start my 93

this problem started a few months ago. when I would try to start up, turning the key I would get all power to the lights, dash gauges, ect. but no crank or even a click. After 5 or 10 mins. it would fire right up. this car has been well maintained and ran perfect before last month when i went to my storage to pick up some tools for a friend, and upon leaving I turned the key to start up and .... nothing no crank or click just the normal chime of the system. the security light keeps flashing if that is of some importance.
I have replaced the battery, the ignition switch(the one on the coloumn that ties into the electrical system) and the netural safety switch on the trans axle because I was getting power to the pale yellow wire that goes into the neutral safety switch, but not out to the purple wire going to the starter sld. I had the key checked at the dealership it was fine. It has resistor pellet # 6. Its has been 6 weeks of good money after bad, headaches, bus stops, and walking in everywhere day and night. feedback with same problem and any remedy will be gratefully received.

If the security light is on, that means there is a VATS issue, that the VATS reciever is not getting the correct resistance from your key. Try cleaning your key with a Q-Tip and alcohol. And insert the key into the ignition a few times, and clean it again. This will also clean the lock cylinder too. Also try wiggling the key in the lock cylinder BEFORE turning the ignition on.

i had the same problem check the wiring harness from the ignition control module to the crank and cam sensors u might have melted the wires on the block which would cut ur signal to the ECM i will show pics soon
