I experienced the same problem..sometimes my vehicle would crank and while moving it would cut off. I changed ..not sure whats it called but its a group of wires leading into the sterring column from beneath the dash and connects to the left side of the sterring column. Remove the cover around the column and look for a set of wires leading from your main electrical connector..upper left on the fire wall. Its removal is not difflcult..I was able to find one at a savage yard for appox. $19.00. I would suggest asking a mech. the name of this part.... I got it. Its called the ignition switch. Go to web site..gmpartsdirect.com ..using the search engine locate your veh. pull up sterring column and the part ID is number is 2. Good Luck Semper FI
