FILE DOWN BATTERY CONNECTOR POSTS AND BATTERY POSTS. HAVE ELECTRICAL CHECK OF STARTER. IF STILL NOT STARTING, HAVE ELECTRICAL CHECK OF ALL ENGINE INPUTS AND OUTPUTS.

It could be a fault with the VATS (Vehicle Anti-Theft System). Either have it repaired or install a by-pass. A relatively inexpensive by-pass kit (wire harness) can be purchased from Amazon. Of course by doing this you no longer have the VATS functioning.
