SOURCE: 1997 Lesabre won't start
Being a ase mechanic for 25 years, iv'e seen many a buick v6 do this. the camshaft chain upper sprocket (the bigger one) has a magnet glued on to it. This is what the camshaft sensor reads. THEY ALWAYS COME UNGLUED, usually after 60k miles or so. Replace timing chain set will fix it.

SOURCE: locating VATS module under dash
It is located above th glove box you will need to take the upper dash pad off and the glove box asbly out and the module is attached to the dash reinforcement at the top of the glove box vats modules very rarely go bad it could be the ing lock cylinder ck for contanuity of the 2 wires at the bottom of the steering column in the orange insulation with the key in the lock cylinder and ohm meter across the 2 wires you should get an ohm reading then turn the lock cylinder and if the wiring goes to open the wires are broken and the lock cylinder needs to be replaced.

Testimonial: "Man thanks a bunch, i cant begin to tell you how amazing this all is! you probably get that all the time, but im just an average joe"
Go to this website and it explains your VATS in detail it sounds like your VATS may have been disabled but as I am not there to see the wiring harness or if wires have been cut I can't say for sure, But go to this website http://vats.likeabigdog.com/ and it goes into great detail with instructions and photos. to answer your issue.
Hope this helps please do not forget to rate/vote or place a testimonial on my advice and if I can help further please do not hesitate to ask as i have a 1984 Camaro Z28 in my yard that we are starting to rebuild and have owned several and performed my own mechanics because I wanted it safe and right. And my husband is a 22 year controls electrician in concept design and engineering so when in doubt I can ask him also.

Part of the BCM. On mine I got a new lock cylinder and put old chip key in it. Then found the wire to the old one at lower part of steering column and plugged it in . Started car with extra key I had thus by passing the removal of the old lock cylinder. Hid new cylinder with key in it under dash and secured. no more chip keys needed.
