Probably your security system:
PassKey I, and II
Similar to the VATS system, these vehicles also used a pellet key. You can identify this system by looking at the key. It has a black resistor pellet with a thin metal edge running along the key. The system enables the starter, but shuts down the injectors after initial startup. So the vehicle would start, then die. This system has a "relearn" feature. It was used on these vehicles
Buick
Riviera/Reatta 90-01

Is the security light coming on? Are you using the factory key with pellet inside? Do you have another factory key you can try?

Car will start and cut right off


When it won't start you will need to check for spark and fuel pressure to figure out if you are dealing with the ignition system or fuel system.
