Hi,
Most likely this is the passkey system. Do you have a little black plastic piece on the key with a metal line in it. If you look at the link below. You will see what I mean its on the ignition key. It's kind of complicated how it works. But basically that little plastic thing with metal in the key. Has a resistance value. This is an extra security feature GM used. Unfortunately over long enough time the resistance changes in the key. Now because that key is already bad. You can't check to know which key you had that year. I would contact a dealer near you and with your vin they can help you get the key you need. if you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

It is not crankin the engine over at all!. I put i a new starter and nothing. There is a good 13 volts hitting the starter motor and a good 12v hitting the solenoid when the switch is turned.

The fan doesn't work on my '89 cavalier 2.8. I replaced the temp sensor and the fan heat switch just above it, still no good. I bypased the switch and wired the fan direct to ignition side of fuse block. That worked, so the fan motor is good. However, the car doesn't run right when this is done so I put it back the way it was. The ecm got replaced also. Unless the new switch and/or temp sensor are bad...I'm stumped!

Also there's a noise that follows - moderate vibration - when I engage the engine in first and second gear. It use to happen only in first gea
