Angry car won't start

can someone please help. I have a 1993 camaro V6 3.4L, automatic transmittion. the car won't start. the starter is good. It won't start from the key checked the switch and that to is good. I noticed if i probe the starter relay with a test light it starts with the key but shuts down after 10 seconds or so. please tell me what could be the cause of that. i noticed there is a security bos uner the dash if this is faulty could that cause the problem?
Thank you

Re: car won't start

That car has a VATS system and is designed to start and run if the correct chip is imbedded into the key blade. There are 15 different chips with different Ohms readings. Do you have a chip/pellet in the blade of the key? If so clean it and the contacts in the ignition lock and try again.
