The problem will return. This is a problem with GM cars built after 1998. The issue is the ignition switch. It senses the key in the ignition. If anything else is used to try to start the car it turns off the fuel to the engine. Gm is aware of the problem but has refused to address it.
A very common issue. The switch wears out and activates the anti theft. Leaving the switch on for 10 minutes or until the light goes out will reset it. Once the problem occurs you can expect it to happen again. Then more fequently. The only way to fix it right is to replace the ignition switch.( Part is over $100) When you get tired of the 10 minute delay you can spend the money. There is a way to bypass the anti-theft but it is best left to an alarm specalist.
Other option is to install remote start system.
