SOURCE: SL2 ? 2000 starting problem
I had the same problem at one time and what the problem was is a short or an exposed wire connected to the starter which causes the voltage to fluctuate which in turn activates a security feature that stops the flow of fuel to the injectors. The car actually senses the possibility of a spark which could possibly ignite the fuel and be a fire hazard. If you turn the ignition on and off repeatedly after a certain amount of time the car will start and run fine. It is a very intermittent problem.

you've run afoul of the "passlock" anti-theft, or "passive anti-lock system" (aka PATS). I'm pretty sure you're in for some attention from a GM dealer who appear to be the only ones with the hardware to "flash" the brain-box (PCM). Here's a sequence that I've seen noised around on some of these forums: Turn your ignition to "on" (don't try to start) and leave it for 10 minutes, Take the key out for ten minutes. The system has thus "learned" the new key metallurgy, and you can go ahead and start the car. It didn't work in my case but it's worth a shot. Also if you have a code scanner see if you have any trouble codes. Stay in touch with us on this as I'm still going around the pole on mine, ... cheers
