When it shuts off does it just die like a switch was flipped, or does it stutter to a stop?

Check over the battery cables. A loose connection could cause that.

Define "nothing happens". Do you mean you get no bells, lights on dashboard?

Get some alcohol and clean the chip(both sides) on your ignition key and try again.

On the 95'*, if the security light is flashing, your starter is disabled. 96 and above, the starter will engage, but the fuel injectors/or fuel pump won't turn on.

Sounds like a VATs issue. Here is how to bypass it. https://www.gmforum.com/electrical-133/bypass-vats-92-99-a-279119/ You can also try a different key.
