Depending on where it is coming from it could be a bad u joint in the transaxle or the steering column can also pop on these models. the steering column has grease inside that when it dries and hardens the colapsable shaft starts moving around and binding slightly. All Chevy service departments know of this issue.
you should take it to a shop that can work on these systems if not go to a dealer to have it checked.there is sensors that affect the electrical steering systems.and should only be work on by qualified techs,as if you do it yourself you may not have a problem but you could end up causing an accident if not done properly.
Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth, if the wheel was turned too sharp when the car was shut off the steering lock is putting too much pressure on the tumbler for the key to turn. If that doesn't work you will have to have the key and tumbler replaced.
I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.
