This answer was rated:

Hello, I have a 1992 toronado and just about everytime I try and start it, It will not and the dash board says Starting Disabled. I want the three minutes like the manual says clean the key, but still will not start. Could this be a fuse problem or something bigger...Thanks

Yes, it security key. I have tried both of the keys I have same thing happens
Ok what happens here is the contact in the key cylinder get bad, and do not connect to the coded pin in the key( PIN is a color brass).,also the wiring to the key cylinder break a known failure .
These are two wire that go up along the steering column to the key cylinder normally white in color, both wire's.
One way to repair this cheaply is to test the key pin with a ohm meter to see what ohm
rating it has ,for example could be 3.6ohms .then you go to radio shack and buy a resister with the same reading, and connect it to the two white wires then you will see that the light goes out and will start.
