Your car is equipped with an anti-theft detterent system. Your system is not communicating properly. This could be one of two problems, the first is the ignition switch. In this mechanism there is a micro chip, that is causing the car to disable the fuel pump. The second problem could be a faulty BCM or a combination of both. I had this same problem and had to get a new ignition switch. At first, it works with the 10min on procedure. Eventually it will stop working and your car will not start at all.

When turning key, do you have power? If not, then check battery, cables etc. If so, then could be a bad starter/starter relay. If cranks, but doesn't start, then check fuel pressure, crank/cam sensor, ignition module, coil etc.

The pass key system needs to be reset, as if the car forgot the code it reads from the key. To reset the system follow these steps. 1. Start the car 2. Let the car die as it was doing and then dont touch the key. 3. Let the car sit there for 20 or 30 min with the key on 4. Turn the key off then start the car up and you should be all set. I called a GM dealer and they told me they had to recalibrate the passkey system 100$ .... screw the dealer.
