Re: problem starting my car
You have been initiated into the faulty main relay club. Check some of the other posts about this problem; it can be complicated. Also look under 1997 Honda Civic. The main relay is also a problem for them.

Dead battery armed the security system. Remove the battery cable let the system reset. Charge the battery. Use the key to unlock the door instead of the keyless entry. This resets the alarm once the battery is charged.
A used body control can be used in a vehicle other than the vehicle it was installed in. the body control module when first installed is programmed with the vehicle vin number. the vin number can not be changed was it was written to the BCM. the oprions can be always change in the BCM but not the VIN number. basically the used bcm you have installed has the vin number from the vehicle was installed in, now the vin number in the used BCM doesnt match all the other control modules
You mean that the starter is turning (cranks) the engine but the engine won't start? Be sure it is getting fuel. Turn the key to the on position and you should hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank run for a few seconds. If so that is good. If the fuel is being delivered then possibly you have no spark which usually is the electronic ignition module. The only way to test it is to replace it. Your timing chain or belt could be broken or "jumped" as the third possibility. I am leaning toward ignition module being bad as they just die without warning and nothing can revive them.
With a new switch comes a new key. Gm has a relearn procedure. You must do this 3 times. Turn the key on, engine off, wait ten minutes, turn the key off for 5 seconds. After the third time start the car. remember to turn the key off after the third time or you will have to start over. just a note , if you have daytime running lights , pull the fuse or relay to save the battery. It would be marked DRL
