If you have the chip on the key then all you need to do is test the resistance and you can get a replacement off of ebay I believe there is about 15 different resistances. Good luck and enjoy. Please take a moment to rate my solution fixya.

1999 Chevy Lumina won't turn battery

If your lumina has a Pass II key, it may well be the ignition lock cylinder on the steering column. The car key has a resistor staked on the sides of it which is read by the theft deterent module. The theft deterent module issues a command to the ignition relay and the fuel injectors when it reads a correct resistance from the key. If the lock cylinder is damage( broken wire) ect. the theft deterent module will not be able to read the key. Unfortunately, if you have a Lumina with a solid shroud around the steering column, the dealer will charge you $700-$1200 to replace the cylinder.
Good luck

Buy a new cylinder, put old chip key in cylinder, now plug into the connecter and hide under dash. Start car with with second or duiplicate key. Or measure the resistance in chip on key and get a resistor from radio shack and connect it to wire that plugs in to lock cylinder
