You must get a new ignition at dealer, then your dealer will have to program the key it will never start without that chip..

replacement lock cyldiners come with a blank key for reference only. you need to have your old key read by a dealer parts department for resitance value, (should be for free) then cut the correct vats key....there are 6 different resistances of chips as i recall. if you do not have the original key for car...the vehicle will need to be towed into a dealership (unless they let you borrow the VATS (vehicle anti-theft system) interigator tool .its now antiquated so they might with a deposit. that will read the security module to allow for correct code identification...these are your only 2 choices..i hope this helps you
ps your 4 thumbs up would be appreciated!

SOURCE: i lost my original key
By trying to use another key yu triggered the antitheft system which prevents the car from starting. The only solution is to take it to a dealership and have them replace the ignition switch, the key and the module. About $1000.00. Or you can get a bypass system for about half that, maybe less.
