Short circuit probably not the problem. The pass key system is not being disabled making the car inoperable, thats why it will not crank. Either you are using a key that does not have the correct resistance(black chip in key) or if it is the same key you always used then the pass key sensor went bad. I believe it is in the steering column and a qualified mechanic could help you there.

SOURCE: Pass key light
That's exactly why it won't start. You can either switch the ingition lock back to the original one so you can use the right key. Or, you can sync the new key with the computer. To do this you or someone else will have to use a gm tech-2 scanner, snap-on modis or an otc genisys scanner. Your local dealer or good repair shop should be able to fix you up. Now, there is another way. The passkey system works on resistance from the chip. In you steering colum there is a 2-wire plug going to the ignition lock. If you pull it out of the colum and cut the plug off. You can pop the chip out of the original key and solder the wires to it. Just make sure you don't heat the chip up to much. After doing this you can use any $10 standard gm ignition lock instead of the expensive ones that use a chipped key.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect any other wiring that may be attached to the door.

If the engine will not turn over using the starter then it cannot be the fuel pump. If the car has a factory inhibitor system installed, the chances are that it is this system that is preventing the car from starting. You may not have to press a button on the key fob either, it may have a transponder built into the key fob which transmits it's data at switch on.If you don't have the correct key or a key without a keyfob then the anti-theft system will NOT be disabled and the car will not start. There is no easy answer for this as you need the correct keyfob or you need to purchase and have programmed, the new keys.. If this is not the issue, let me know and I will describe further procedures for your issues..
