As far as the turning of the key on and back off and then it starting, it sounds like a fuel pump problem. The fuel pump only primes for 2 sec and therefore cycling the key builds up enough pressure in order for the vehicle to start. As for why the vehicle is not cranking, that I do not know. I would check the battery terminals for corrosion and try to clean them.

I have 2000 olds bravada with 4.3 l vortec.It just stalled on me driving down road.I turn key to listen for fuel pump, didn't hear it .What would make car not start? With no pump turning on?

maybe the pump is stopped from the fuel pressure being reached and the pressure switch turned it off
what would make the engine stop and not start is a broken timing belt/chain
widen your checks to include , camshaft turning, cam. crank position sensors , ignition control module , immobilizer

I have a 2000 old bravada it is slugish and dies at stop lights and in the morning sometimes it wont start it backed fired

With idle issues, clean the throttle body and idle air system. How long since a tune-up? Check valve timing.

Are there any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.

2000 Olds Bravada Key operates all electrics but will not turn ignition Could key be faulty

ignition switch has a anti-theft type lockout in the electronic switch inside steering column - have also had mine do this due to bad connection at the battery - remove both battery bolts and clean terminal and make sure you have a good connection - have also had my starter go out and does same thing - all lights and electronics but no start - had all 3 of these on my bravada in one week!!

On a 2000 olds Bravada the key wont turn off all the way

you need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly, the swtch may be secured with what you call shear bolts which may have to be drilled out, only you can decide if you are capable of doin this, new bolts should be supplied with the new swith, when you retighten the bolts, the heads will shear off when they are tight enough, the aim of these are to prevent theives making a quick ignition change to steal your car

Sometimes it turns over and starts but won't stay running right won't start at all!

On the 2000 Bravada I have the "pleasure" of maintaining, I was recieving calls about 3x a week. It would crank over and not start.. and she would try this till the battery was dead. I would come jump it and it would be fine. Then it would crank over and start, but die right away, and do this 4 or 5 times before it would run. Does that sound like your problem?
The problem I found was the EGR valve was locking up. Once I replaced that it was all better, and purring like a kitten.

Good Luck
