I had this same problem . with my monte carlo . I was told from a mechanic buddy of mine to replace the battery wires as well as the brass mount that the wire goes to by the fuse box . it worked . he told me that with the littlest corrosion that the key would not get enough amps to engage the starter. as well as kill the power to the fuel pump

I have a 200 saturn and every once in a while it won't turn over...battery fine and no engine light

If it is an automatic shift you should have a neutral safety switch between the key switch and the starter. I would check that and for power at the starter when it fails to crank.
If it is a manual shift there is a switch on the clutch pedal or linkage.
It may be tough to find until you can duplicate the problem on demand.
Could also be a dead spot in the starter or solenoid.

I have 2004 Chevy Malibu classic, it acts like it wanna crank but won't. it will turn over but won't stay cranked up.

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

I have a 99 chevy blazer won't start but will turn

You may have a fuel pressure problem or the secuirty system has locked you out for some reason due to a false signal or failed part. Do you have any electronic engine control codes? Is the Security light on in the instrument cluster and fishing when you try to start the truck? To check the fuel issue get a can of spray starting fluid from the auto parts store or any hardware store and spray it into the air intake of the engine while someone cranks the engine, if it starts you may have a defective fuel pump, the pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to access and replace the pump.

I had a fuel pump replaced and after the job was done my battery was dead so It was taken out and charged up now my anti-theft light and the car won't start,days' later I came out turned the key it...

is the security light still on? a quick test is to remove the negative terminal on the battery for 10 minutes. reconnect and see if car starts without the security light on.
if the light remains on turn the key to ON without starting engine and leave it for 10-15 min until light goes out and then start the car, it should then stay running when you open the door.
the late 90's into 2000's GMs have issues with their security systems acting up, unfortunately your car is one of the ones it affects.there is no way to disable the system because it is part of the ECM
always unlock driver door first when using the key, there is actually a sensor that the computer reads, if the door is unlocked without a key such as using a slim jim or coat hanger the system will trigger a no start and the light will be on.

2000 Chevy s10 manual changed starter still won't start the starter is spinning but the engine won't turn over.

Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day

I'm having trouble with my ignition on my 01 bravada when you turn the switch all the lights gauges and radio work as they should but car will not start any ideas.

Yes, this is most likely the anti theft security system. This system is KNOWN to FAIL on just about all GM cars from the late 80's to mid 2000's. Check out this link for info on the subject and possible DO IT YOURSELF solutions.
