I have an 86 that had the same problem. About half the time the key with the embedded resister would not make a good contact. The starter would not crank and It took about 2 minutes to reset for another try. There is a modification for it on one of the corvette web sites. You take the cover for the steering shaft off. Just under the dash board. You can then see a harness. You add a resister the matches the value of the one on the key. Since the right resister has been added directly to the system it bypasses the key connection. Very easy to do and can always be stock again, but I would never change it.

comment. My '93 never had a problem except once. I had carried the key in my hand while walking to the car, and perspiration apparently caused the failure. It would probably be worthwhile to clean the key really well, and give it another try before doing anything major.
Hope this helps.
