    My son has a 1996 Bravada and the key is stuck in the ignition. He drove it home and then and when he tried to take the key out in wouldn't come out. I tried as well, the key will turn but won't come out. I tried making sure it was in park, restarting the engine and then turning off and trying did not work. Any suggestions?

    Can't get key to turn all the way to take it out. The button on the shifter is sticking also. Can turn the car on and start but can't turn the key all the way off to remove it. Will only stay in accessory which ran the battery down.

My battery is being drained with the car off

The first thing to do is have the battery load tested to make sure it is not the battery failing. Any Autozone or Oriley auto parts will do the test for free as well as check the alternator.

Are you sure the battery is ok, sounds like a low battery voltage problem. You can have the battery tested for free at any of the discount auto parts stores like Autozone for instance.

If the car died after being jumpstarted, then the alternator isn't making enough charge to keep the car running. Pull it and have it tested at autozone. They do it for free.

Starting problem, battery? alternator??

Unless you have good jumper cables it would start easy since I didn't get in on the begining of this I will assume you have a bad connection tothe starer or a bad starter if it drags.

Key doesnt turn

dose your car have a key removal lock ? a lock you have to press befor you can remove the key ?
there is a shift over ride by your shifter. between/around the shifter and the radio (closer to the sifter) there is a small round plastic cover you can remove with a small flat head screw driver. remove this. you will a key or the screw driver and insert it into, what looks like a key hole for your car and turn/press (sorry for being vauge GMC's change year to year) this should allow you to move the shifter into park. make sure the car is off or at lest you have the E-brake on as well as your peddle brakes.

Key will not go into lock position - and I cant remove it on 2000 Bravada. The trans works fine.. the car starts fine.. I just cannot move the key to the lock position and remove it. Any help for this one?

Make sure the car is completely in park. I have had to wiggle the steering wheel to make sure it engages in the locked position before it will let me remove the key. For some reason, the ignition doesn't recognize the vehicle is in park.

1996 Bravada wont start (no response to key turn) and key stuck

battery is dead, battery cables are loose, or your vehicle is not in park all the way. Put it into neutral and try to start it there.
