i used to work as a GM mechanic for years, and we had quite a few complaints like yours, GM issued a computer reprogram to resolve most issues with starting, i would contact your local dealer and have them check for open campaigns or bulletins for your car if there is one they will do it at no cost to you.

i had a similar problem with my 2000ls i turned the key on left it in the on position for 15 mins then repeated it after the second time i turned the key on and off quickly 3times on the 3rd time i held it in the start position and it cranked over. note let your car run for a while to recharge your battery doing this really does drain it

Body Control Module (BCM) on both counts. Find a shop in your town that specializes in electrical systems to test it. Beware, these can be intermittent problems, so make sure they keep it until the car does what you have observed. Expect to spend about $450 for the replacment. Dealers quoted me between $700 and $1,100 for the same repair. By the way, a new BCM will probably only last you about 12 months.
