If you have the original keys and the orange wires in the steering column have been cut you need to reconnect them. That's the wires for the VATS security system. Without the correct key it still won't start though. Same deal if the lock cylinder has been removed. You need the correct key blank for it to start. HTH. -Jim

You absolutely can't start it with a screwdriver. You'll have to get a replacement lock cylinder and then have your local GM dealer or locksmith determine which VATS key blank you need. That's the only way to get it running again. The fuel and ignition systems have been shut down by the VATS security system. HTH. -Jim
