See if you can jump start it and have it stay running. If you have gauges on the dash, check the Alternator gauge to make sure it's charging good. It doesn't take much juice to keep the radio going so don't assume the battery is good.

SOURCE: seems like the car is staying in "ACC" (accesory key position)

the ignition lock cylider gets jammed try messing with the shifter my alero has done the same thing to me. the ignition cylinders on these the grand-ams and about five other gm cars with the dash mounted ignition are very ****-poor and a new switch at the dealer is 175.00 and you have to have it fitted to your key as the new one comes without a key
