Sounds like someone should invest a few bucks in a code scanner.

Uh, I do? And TTS Datamaster.

This isn't a problem at the PCM, it's a problem at the VATS module.

If anything, about all I can do is tune out the VATS on the PCM and pray for the best, cause I'm not going to any chevy dealer to get it repaired.

So I tuned out VATS out of the PCM and pulled the VATS fuse (to prevent the dash light), now she starts every time, if not quicker than before (not sure why but it IS noticeably quicker at catching at start).
