realize GMs have crappy computers, you get a used one from a junk yard, odds are it's bad. Your car has the classic signs of computer and or wiring system failure. I would start with a computer from a company like NAPA that can sell you an already programmed one and if necessary, pay a locksmith to do the coding for the anti theft system. Good luck
