The most probable cause for this is a an intermittent problem with the Starter solenoid and/or starter.
When the car does not respond to turning the ignition key on can you hear a click from under the hood?
If you can that is the starter solenoid trying to turn on the starter motor. I would say the starter needs to be replaced.
If you cannot hear anything, then the solenoid ( which is just a relay) is probably bad.
I just replaced my startere on my F150, starter & solenoid come as a unit.... cost about $125.
Hopes this helps good luck Loringh

I just recently was troubled with the same problem it can only be fixed by changing the ignition switch. you have to get the key and switch together (dealer only) any GM dealer will be able to help with that then remover the steering wheel and get to work or pay a mechanic to do that for you but it will solve the problem you see there is a small white wire that came apart sucks but that's what happened .

I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer

the locking solenoid could be sticking up or down due to the cold or could be going bad. if possible take off the door panel a watch the solenoid as you have someone operate the key and with the remote.

You can use a wood wedge to pry the top of the driver or passenger door open 1/2 to 1 inch. Then use a stiff rod to reach in the opening and push the lock button open. I used this method to get my keys locked inside my EXT with no damage. Just be careful not to damage the paint.
