Car not starting or turning over,indicates towards multiple possibilities.It can be issue with battery or weak battery.But if battery checks out ok,then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
To confirm the problem,the basic troubleshooting is required.

Does a faulty crank sensor set a code on a 2001Silverado


It should set a diagnostic fault code, but if it does not then take out the sensor and inspect for a crack in it or motor oil in the electrical plug connector which indicates a faulty sensor.

2003 GMC Sierra died while driving down the highway


hi, the problem you are having sounds like an imobilser problem does your key have a fob that unlocks the doors etc check this is working if it is then the problem could be with the key itself as they are programmed so that if somebody used a different key in the ignition it wouldnt allow the car to start.
The only way of knowing for sure is by taking it to a main dealer because the imobilser problems wont show up on a diagnostics machine the main dealer will be able to test the key or fob for you they should test it for free but if it needs replacing then you will have to pay for this unless its a common fault if it is common problem with that make and model they will replace this for free.

im sorry their is no easy fix for this problem but it is more than likely your imobiliser if it was say something like starter motor your car wouldnt have cut off whilst running so it points to an imobiliser problem so get this checked.

Let me know how you get on or if you require further assistance ok

Cuts off, but will restart, then cuts off again


Likely, you have a damaged engine bearing. When there is a problem there it will turn oil pressure light on because bearings keep the pressure inside the crankshaft...It may stop as the bearing overheats and binds, then loosens up a bit allowing a re-start when it gets cooler. Battery sounding dead is likely because the engine is locking up and too difficult for starter to turn.
At this point, it is not a do-it -yourself project ...either you need a lower end rebuild or engine replacement.
