I would have your ignition switch examined. Grand Ams are notorious for this issue. If the ignition switch is faulty and it gets bumped around from normal driving it could short out. This would leave you stranded every time.

I've had the ignition checked and apparently it's ok, something else was discovered,some sensor in the engine when it was replaced the car started.

Could it possibly be something wrong with the battery? Thought I'd throw that out there.
