Do yourself a favor an have it towed to a qualified repair shop. You probably have no idea how this vehicles systems work . When you turn the key to start , the ignition switch is not directly connected to the starter solenoid .This vehicles ignition switch is a low voltage input to the BCM - body control module , the BCM sends a message over the GMLAN serial data network to the PCM - powertrain control module to start the engine . Any number of thing's can interupt that message causing a no start condition. The BCM - is what is called the PMM - power mode master , when it see's any input from the ignition switch - off / ACC/ run crank etc... it sets the power mode . It will energize relays turning thing's on or off . Welcome to the world of electronics .
Circuit Description
When the ignition switch is turned to the Start position, the body control module (BCM) receives battery voltage on the ignition 1 voltage circuit, and less than 5 volts on the off/run/crank voltage circuit. The BCM supplies voltage to energize the RUN/CRANK Relay 32. The BCM sends a high speed GMLAN serial data message to the engine control module (ECM) that the key is in the start position. The ECM receives the message from the BCM, and also receives a serial data message from the transmission control module (TCM) containing the shift lever position. If the shift lever is in Park or Neutral when ignition switch is turned to Start, the ECM supplies voltage to the START Relay 31. The START relay supplies voltage to the S terminal of the starter solenoid, through the 30 A STRTR Fuse 26, in order to crank the engine.

Power to many of this vehicle's circuits are controlled by the module that is designated the power mode master (PMM). This vehicle's PMM is the body control module (BCM). The PMM controls which power mode (Run, Accessory, Crank, Retained Accessory Power, or Off) is active.
Serial Data Power Mode Master
On vehicles that have several control modules connected by serial data circuits, one module is the power mode master (PMM). On this vehicle, the PMM is the body control module (BCM). The PMM receives 3 discrete ignition switch signals to differentiate which power mode will be sent over the Serial Data circuits. The 3-wire Ignition Switch table below illustrates the state of these inputs in correspondence to the ignition switch position

3.5l V6 Auto. Why is there no power at the fuel pump?


Just answered a similar question. Does it turn over? Either way, I would look for blown fuse and then check (usually) under the hood for a relay. You can some times test by taking another relay for lights or something not needed to run and switch them IF THEY ARE EXACTLY the same. If the pu,p works you will know.

How do I replace the high mount brake light on my 2011 Chevy Malibu?


You need to take the back seat out. Remove the C-Pillar trim panels. Lift up on the package shelf. Unplug the wiring connector. I've had mine out when I changed the speakers.

BTW, Its Not a Bulb. Its a LED Assembly. Replaced as a whole unit. Unless your good with electronics and soldering.
