Wish I could help you bro. I had a starter problem that was randomly it would crank slowly and wouldn't start unless I pressed the gas. To fix it, I cleaned the throttle body. Three days and it hasn't had a problem again yet.

Have you tried a different key? Reflash the computer? I don't know a whole lot about cars but it sounds like you have more of a computer/electrical than mechanical problem. Maybe when they disconnected the remote start something got crossed. Take it back to whoever did that and talk to them?

Why did you disconnect remote start? Just wondering.

Does it have factory or aftermarket remote start in that car?
Start relay #31 in the underhood fuse block is chattering?
Expand on this statement: "remote start has been disabled"

The remote start is factory installed and works fine with both keys.
I disabled the remote start with the menu on the computer.
I also tryed some wd -40 in the key slot with no luck.
I have not replaced the starter relay.how ever i could.
I also called a couple of gm dealers ankd they claim never to have seen this problem.

It has to be the ignition switch then. That's covered in the Chiltons for G6.

I think he's referring to the electric part of the lock vs the mechanical part of the lock. I'd say the electrical parts. I.E. the switch behind the key'd lock

I would assume it's easier getting to the assembly with it being in the dash, As opposed to being in the steering column. Just larger panels to remove...
