Your title is confusing between the 2 model years listed, but here's what I can suggest. Either way it sounds like a worn out ignition key cylinder that is just worn out. However, the '97 pickups have the steering wheel lock feature when the key is in the off position. You might want to try moving the steering wheel side to side and see if it is bound up on the locking mechanism. If it's a 2005 truck, that isn't the case and it is most likely a bad key cylinder

SOURCE: 2005 GMC Sierra: key goes into ignition key buzzer

key maybe worn down.. I suggest you take ownership to dealer and they will cut you a brand new key from your VIN. This will eliminate any key issues. most of the time the will work perfect. if not then the cylinder has problems with it and will need service by a locksmith. the dealer will charge to much for this service, so find a automotive locksmith to help.

I changed batteries in my 2003 GMC Sierra key fob


1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.

4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).
