Have a pass key?
Key with a resistor in it, matches the same in VATS module. Read your owners manual, if there is still one there.
If module doesn't recognize the key first time, wait three minutes, then try again with same key, car will start.
I've had the electrical socket portion of the ignition switch go bad, the contacts in the depths of the switch fail to mate with the key, thus, no match, no start.
Have to get a new electrical switch part and new key made from dealer, under $75.
Others here may have another suggestion to bypass.
