My daughter'* dad has a 1995 Bonneville SSEi that had the same problem. They would turn the key and nothing would happen. In their car it was some sort of relay that caused the problem.

Does her car have the chip in the key or no?

If so try cleaning it really well.

I had that with my Cutlass a little over a year ago. I just cleaned it good and tried later and it worked. Now actually since last year my security light won't go off, but thankfully it hasn't had any problems starting. I've read that when it goes bad, you have to change out the relay or something in the steering column.

the steering columns are a pain and sometimes the wires get pinched wrong and well it is a pain messing with it and the annoying signal click those are some of the reasons IO got rid of the 00 I had plus I wanted a 3800. just check the steering collumn and look for a loose connection that might be the reason
