There are two possible solutions, one its the battery which everyone accuses when there is no start, two the alternator could be not charging the battery the way it should. I hope that helps.

My radio on my 2005 Chevy silverado wont turn off when i turn my car open and open the door and its making my truck die, changed the ignition switch this did not help. Any other suggestions?

its making my truck die - What does that mean? Is the truck's engine shutting down while it is running, or is the battery being drained such that the engine will not start?
Is the radio ON even when the ignition switch is turned off? Your radio power wire may be connected to a point that is always on instead of to a point that is controlled by the ignition switch.

My 2006 chevy trailblazer 2wd 6cyl wont start. makes clicking noise, then nothing lights/radio etc work but wont start what is it

You got a jump and it ran fine? It's your battery. The lights and radio are much easier for a battery to handle than spinning a car engine. Again, if all you needed was a jump, you have a bad battery.

Been having problems when starting vehicle, battery wont charge

Battery are in most case only good for 4 years and after that they can no longer hold a charge. Have the truck boosted to start the engine, you may need to let the battery charge up for 120 min before trying to start the truck.
Once started, check the voltage at the battery, you should have a reading of 13.5 to 14 volts. If you have less then 13.5 volts, you most likely have a bad alternator and needs to be replaced.
If your readings are good and there is 13.5 volts, your battery is bad and needs to be replace. The battery can no longer hold a charge and at worst there is a short in the battery it self causing it to loose charge like leaving a light on.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Wont start

for starters sounds like you need a battery. I would have it checked. this can also be messing with the security system but you may have a problem with your passlock sensor in the switch. have battery tested and put a new one in it and lets go from there
