Now that it is cold my security light stays on after the car is started.
If I shut it off and restart the car it goes off.
I also found out if I double key it the light stays off.
By double key I mean I turn to key to on and then off and then start the car.
It only does it when the weather gets cold.
I have tried both keys and no difference.
Will a new key make a difference or is it something in the ignition switch?
Thank you.

Your results may have vary, but my Security light would randomly appear and disappear when my battery leads were not tight.

Random security problems when it's cold out is a common Bonneville problem. I don't have any answers for you though.

My, and my friend's 2000 SSEis would also do it as it got cold. There was no rhyme nor reason for it, just one of those gremlins that like the colder weather. As it goes away with the next start, just something we got used to seeing.

Thanks for the replies.
It is no big thing but my wife who has the car now was wondering.
If she double keys it there is no problem.
Just trying to keep the wife happy!!!

Seem to be a lot of cold weather security issues. At least it's just the security light coming on. I have the " no crank" issue since it got cold. Only thing I can think of is there's some kinda tolerance issue with the strength of the exciter coil in the key switch for the RFID chip in the key. The cold temperature seems to make it take a few seconds longer for the vehicle to read the key. If I wait a few seconds (5-10) before I turn key to START, it works fine.
