I'd check your disributor. It's kind of hard to tell based on the description you gave, but based on the sounds of it it isn't the plugs and wires. If your key has the chip on it, you might need a new key, maybe that chip isn't contacting right sometimes, so if you have a spare try that. If you can give a little bit better description and I'm sure some of the more senior car guys can help and provide you with better answers.

Its that damn security system. Mine did that, it wouldn't start for awhile and the security light would stay on. Still don't know how to fix it or what caused it. I changed the starter, so it starts every time, but the light stays on.

were you able to jump yours when it did it?

I always wondered if that security light really works. So if the alarm goes off, it kills the motor too. interesting. And even the little security light flashes. how special. Its so cool. =)
