You can start it by putting into program mode...try to start, then turn it to off..,,then turn it to on (not start)..leave it on for 15 min...turn it to off for 2 min..and start..
This will reset the signal from the bcm to the pcm of the car.
you most like ly have a problem in the start switch key reader...It has to be replaced as a unit
Or it could be your bcm or pcm...very very expensive... try this first... If it does not work off to the dealership..don't even try to give this to a garage to fix. Gm has the software to reflash your computer.

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

The theft light will only blink rapidly while cranking if the immobilizer inside the ignition switch isn't reading the CHIP inside the key. the immobilizer is part of the factory antitheft system. they don't normally go bad, but the key could have lost its programming. or if you had a copy made with just a metal key without the chip in it. the dealership can reprogram it for you if that is the problem.
