SOURCE: can't remove key from ignition 2001 gmc jimmy

I dont know how much help this will be, but I'll offer it and let you be the judge.

Ive had this issue before in a different GM vehicle, a Pontiac Grand Prix. The issue turned out to be that the voltage from the battery was low due to corroded terminals. Once that was cleaned up and the voltage restored to normal, the key came out. Come to find out that this was a common issue in that vehicle, voltage goes low, you cant remove the key.

Now, on my vehicle and since yours is a GM product as well I will assume it will hold true for your vehicle too, there is a small hole on the bottom side of the column right in the area of where the ignition key cylinder is. If you have this, you can take a small tool like an allen wrench and push it up in there and that will press on a release mechanism that should allow you to turn the key back to its release position and pull the key out.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to uninstall a blower motor on a 1999 GMC JIMMY

Yeah if you have to tap on it, then that means the brushes in the motor are worn out and you need to replace it. The blower motor is behind the PCM and Coolant Overflow bottle. If you remove these then it will give you better access to motor. You'll have to cut around housing. There should be a groove already there for you, just make sure you don't cut all the way around it. Once you open it and get the new one installed, you'll have to use caulk to seal where you cut it at.

Could be a ground problem. You take the ground out of the harness and run it to the body or run a ground from the radio back to the body or both.

No, the problem is not yet overcome, but it appears as if this fixer-uper has been fixed up before with steering parts that are not compatible with '98 Jimmy's. I've left it in the hands of a local GM geru who claims to be able to fix it. I'll keep the email and keep you posted.
