I have a silver lace vine that is 3 years old. It hasn't come out yet but seems to still have flexible vines. Is it just late coming out or is it dead?

I think it is just slow in responding to the weather. Silver lace vine can be pruned back as hard as desired in the early spring each year. (Many gardeners find it needs a very hard pruning to keep the size under control.} It blooms on new growth of the season and the pruning helps stimulate new wood and more blooms by keeping the plant vigorous. Try pruning your plant back to encourage new growth. Best wishes with your garden!
