Unhappy 97 Lumina intermittent starting - security

My wife has a 97 Lumina for a work car.
the problem is that when she tries to crank it , sometimes the security thing goes off and she has to wait about 5 minutes to crank the car.

I have cleaned the inside of the ignition with Alcohol and Q- tips .

it does it with both keys

any experience here ? can this security be disabled ? Ideas ?

we have tried to insert the key and give it a couple of seconds to recognize the chip .
