Yo may try removing positive cable from battery,with key not in truck,leave off for at least ten minutes,then place key in truck turn to the on position and replace battery cable,then turn key on and off three time,s before trying to crank,if this don,t work you may have to have key reprogrammed by dealer.

Put the key in the ignition, turn key to on position and leave it on until the security light goes out. Usually 15min. Once this happens crank the truck without turning the key backwards, just turn to start. This will reprogram the transponder from the ignition switch. Chevy does not have a chip in the get but the key acts as contacts between two points in the switch.
