check to see if the starter itself is getting a signal to crank. youll need to use a test light and have someone else try to start the vehicle, while you probe the wire to the starter to see if it is getting power. if not, check the starter fuse to make sure its not blown, as well as the starter relay to make sure that is good too (very common on gm's for bad relays) if the fuse and relay are good, but your not getting signal, it is an ignition switch problem.

Check that the battery connections are tight and that there's no corrosion.
Check the fuse panel. The starter should have its own fuse. Check to see if its good.
If that checks out, check the connections to the starter. If they check out, and if it's a stick shift, the if the pinion is jammed you can put the car in second gear on level ground, release the parking brake and rock it vback and forth. This should dislodge a jammed pinion. Try starting again and see if this dislodges the starter motor.
Hope this helps.

If your mechanicly inclined, remove the starter and bench test it If you can't do the test take it to any auto parts store such as NAPA and they will bench test it to see if it is any good. A good battery will run a starter very fast so the problem should be your starter itself

The IPC determines that the system voltage is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a serial data message from the body control module (BCM) indicating the system voltage.
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.
The ignition is on, with the engine off
