Won't crank or start. battery good, starter good

(1999 Chevrolet Tahoe)
in Raleigh, NC on November 20, 2010
was driving and vehicle cut off. had towed to precision tune. they said it was the chip in my key. they installed a push button starter. i was able to crank car by turning key to "on" position and then hitting the button. month later i now can't start car at all. turn key to "on" position, all lights come on, but doesn't even turn over with or withouht the start button. HELP!

Recommend having properly repaired, no push buttons.

what would cause a vehicle to cut off...not restart, except for when direct power is given to starter via the remote button though???
What exactly does the remote button bypass? does it bypass the ignition switch?

It bypasses te antitheift system. Once the vehicle antitheif determines a problem it will not send signal to the starter. Does the security lamp flash or stay on? You can force the antitheift system to relean but will not fix the problem. Try starting the vehicle is will not start, leave the key in the on position untill the security lamp turn off or stops flashing, takes 10 min. Then turn to off position for 20 sec and try to start again, this process may need to be repeated a total of three times to relearn.

Ditto on the "Recommend having properly repaired, no push buttons."

They might not have installed a fuse or a relay on the push button switch and caused it to burn out the starter switch.
