Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

hi , not necessarily , did you replace the key and tumbler , or the ignition switch (electrical part) ? there is a password relearn procedure , attempt to start the vehicle , leave ignition on until THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off , (approximetly 10 minutes) , turn ignition switch off , attempt to start vehicle , if vehicle starts , password has been learned ... if password does not relearn , i can post some diagnostic procedures .

I'm going to assume this has the VATS system with the pellet in the key. You need to know the correct resistant of the factory pellet and bypass the system using that value. A quick google search will result in many articles on how to bypass the VATS system, as it's required when installing a remote start system in most late 80s-mid 90s GM vehicles.
