On your Buick 94.
The problem is the ANTI THEFT SYSTEM..
If you have replaced the ignition switch.
If you are using a NEW KEY, the car won't start.
Because in the OLD KEY, is there a Resistence with a number of ohm's
The computer need the resistence to activate the the signals to operate the vehicle.
OK.. with the New Key and Old Key you can go to any Aloha Smith and they will remove the Chip from the Old Key to the New Key.
And the car must start and running.
But if you are using the Same Key that you have before the repair made.
I recomend to check the 2 Orange wires from the Ignition lock Cylinder to the steering column lower connectors.
Ok I hope this work for your problem.
Any moree info, I will glad to help you.
I'm a Mechanic and have all the repair information for all the cars.
Thank you for use fixya...

you will just need to replace the ignition switch itself.
should take you about 45 minutes to a hour to replace.
you will need a steering wheel puller and a compression tool to depress the compression plate to get to where the ignition screw is.
make sure you weight the cost of getting these tools and the cost of a new ignition switch - to - just having a automotive locksmith come out and replace the switch in about 20 minutes and a cost of about 85 dollars ( depending on where you live -- call around and ask for the price ).

SOURCE: when I try to start
If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.
