    These types of problems are difficult to diagnose because the intermittent nature. I would get the diagnostic trouble codes checked and see if there are any that can shed some light on this. Check the battery terminals are clean and tight.
    This may also be related to the security system, are there any lights flashing? See this article for more about this system: http://repairpal.com/gm-passlock-security-light-issues
