As with any other GM VATS system also you have the starter enable relay operated by VATS which is a possible fault point.
VATS may be reading the key / resistors correctly but if the relay is bad you will get a no crank situation
Simplest test would be to hot wire the starter to crank the engine over.( Key on )
If it fires up (VATS shuts off the injectors ) you know the problem is with the starter circuit ie;
Ign switch , relay , P/N switch or the wiring itself to the starter solenoid
