Question about 2009 Pontiac G3
You Pontiac should still be covered under warranty so best that you have the deal address this issue. It could be a faulty ignition switch or a faulty safety neutral switch, regardless. Have the dealer address this issue and please keep us posted.

I have a 2009 G3 and have recently been having the identical problem! I'm going to call for an appointment this week with my local GM shop. Hopefully as you note, it's just something like a faulty switch!
Thanks for the insight! Brad-

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

Probably the starter solenoid. I'm assuming it's a standard transmission. Does pushing the clutch down hard make any difference? There is a safety switch on your clutch pedal. If it's automatic, it would definately be the solenoid. And no, pumping the gas has no effect on the starter. It will help to flood the engine though. ( and that's a bad thing)

Make sure to check all of the connections from your battery to the starter and especially check the ground and the body to engine ground.
This is usually the problem.

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.
