I would check the spark plugs, or check to see if your car is getting fuel. your fuel pump might be bad or your fuel pressure regulator. these are just things to check. i cant properly diagnose without looking at the car. hope this helps you out :)

A weak battery will cause a multitude of problems. Best thing to do is to start with that. Have a auto parts store load test the battery.

This is a VERY common problem in GM vehicles. There is an anti theft security system installed in your car. When there is a communication break in this system, the computer switches off the starter thinking that somebody is trying to steal the car. Is there a light that says SECURITY on the dash when you turn the key forward 2 clicks? If you see this light at all, this is most likely your problem. Check out this link for a full description, and some DO IT YOURSELF options to fix this problem forever.
