Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina
OK, you should try using that new key again, and make sure it works sometimes like the other one does. Have you tried messing with the shifter when it doesn't start? Like maybe shifting to neutral and see if it will start from neutral? I'm attaching your wiring diagram. It is quite simple indicating only a few things can stop it from cranking.
I'm assuming when you say it wont start that it will not crank or even click. Do I have that right? If so, and assuming your new starter and ignition switch are good, only the wiring from the battery, the shifter interlock, the theft system, or the solenoid could be bad. Among these, the things that I have seen as intermittent failures are corroded battery terminals, shifter interlocks, and anti-theft systems.
Please try messing with the shifter and checking the battery terminals. I will do a little more research on your anti-theft system.
