Do you have a security light on the dash? What is it doing? Flashing or on solid.

General Chat is just for car-related chat, not mechanical/maintenance, so I moved your thread to the Chevrolet section. You should get some more eyes on it now.

You have spark and fuel, which is good. I assume the engine is cranking, so that rules out the starter. A Security light would explain the injectors not firing. Crank sensor is also a possibility.

Can you read the check engine codes for us? On your year, you'll need either a code reader or a paperclip.

If the light is on, you should be getting more than just code 12. 12 is everything is normal..
