There is no hack. Only a GM dealer can program the security features of their OEM radios. Just one of the many things that manufacturers have to go through to dissuade auto theft and black market parting.

I've used WD-40 myself to disperse water intrusion for non-integrated lines that carry 130vdc so I'm aware that there isn't a ground conduction or other shorting issue with the spray.
Could you have gotten spray into the distributor sensor apparatus that may be somehow confounding the sensor, keeping the low voltage signal to the coil from occurring?
Could any of the spray have gotten into any electronic components under the hood? Although non conductive, it's anyone's guess what might happen to an IC with oil on its pins and how that could affect the millivolt biases that would be present on some of those pins. If you have some components that may have gotten oil on their circuit boards, some electronic cleaner spray may help. Use safety glasses and gloves. Good luck.

The float is probably stuck on a baffle. Unfortunately, I think you will need to remove it and make sure the float moves freely.

Since the ignition switch connector is a module and not just individual wire contacts as in the 'old days', the chance of the start wire contact coming loose from the ignition switch is not likely.
Unless you can find the start wire actually damaged in the wire harness of the engine compartment, the likely cause of your fail to start with the ignition key would be burned or broken start position contacts in the ignition switch itself.
Gathering that you are probably leaving the ignition switch in the run position when you do a bypass start from under the hood, obviously the run position of the ignition switch still works.

No, an operated fuse would permanently disable power to your radio until replaced.
Assuming someone didn't do something like spray WD-40 into the radio to fix, who knows what, (as an example), your problem sounds like a logic board issue in the radio itself. This should be diagnosed by a reputable radio repair depot and not just a stereo installation shop.

For starters, it's probably a good idea to have the engine and ABS computers diagnosed at a full service garage like a Chevy Dealer.
You may be lucky and just have a couple of loosened computer connections.

There should have been a replacement belt tensioner piece in the belt kit as well to prevent belt slipping. Was it installed after the belt was replaced?
Remember to not attempt to run the engine any longer, replace the belt and tensioner again, regap the rockers if required and reindex the cam and crank marks per the step by step service manual instructions. I hope your piston / valve setup is a non-blocking type.

If you have the air directed to defrost, the AC will run even with the AC button in the off position. This allows the removal of moisture in the air so that the windows won't cloud up. You may also have an auto temperature control and it will run the AC or heater based on what temp you want inside the car. Again the AC button may not be on.

It should be easy enough to read the codes a bad sensor can kill the engine if you can’t find it unplug each sensor until you check them if one makes it run that one is bad try water temp oil press but get the codes and fix the sensor
