Wife had her 98 LaSabre at work the other day and it wouldn't start. She
said the dash lights all came on but when she turned the key it would do
nothing. She tried it a couple times and it started.
I looked at it today and the battery terms were a mess. I gave them a good
cleaning and it started fine. Then wife went to use it again and came in
saying it would not start. I went out and the security light on the dash was
on. I turned tried to start it and nothing. I took the key in and out
several times, trying to start it each time and still nothing. Then I took
the key and cleaned off the resistor thingy on it and this time it started.
The security light then went off.
Any ideas on what could be going on?
