This answer was rated:

1997 Buick Skylark, the instrument cluster was fried, replaced it with a used one and theft light will not allow car to start. Does cluster need to be programmed?
you will need to relearn the theft system this takes 30 minutes turn the key to start at let go leave it in the run position until the theft light goes out about 10 minutes turn the key off do not remove it repeat this 2 more times and then it should start
