The problem is that you have a v6 engine in a car that is only available from the factory with either a single overhead cam 4 cylinder engine ( sl1) or a double overhead cam 4 cylinder engine (sl2). :)
Ls models have a six but where not made in 97. So going on the premis that it is a 4 banger let me give you some things to check. Standard or auotmatic. A neutral safety switch, a clutch safety switch, a starter relay, a bad starter, all could cause a no crank condition. Along with bad wires, wire ends, dirty terminals too.
Now that I have narrowed that down. :)
Start by making sure your fuses, relay, and wires are clean, tight, and functioning. Next move to the starter. The small green wire should have 12 volt with the ignition in the start position. If it does Make sure you have 12 or more volts at the big wire. If not have the starter and solenoid tested. If no power at the green wire look at the safety switches, wires, and the ignition switch itself.
I have a 96 SC2 in the garage finishing some body work myself. If I let it sit to long without diconnecting the battery it will not start either without a charge.
Good hunting and let us know. :)
