Question about 2009 Chevrolet Traverse

Open Question

Traverse is dead and keys stuck in ignition

Went out to start the 2009 Traverse this afternoon. Would not turn over at all. Made a clicking noise, but the radio and light worked. Tried starting again- now only the malfunction light came on headlight on very dim. Also the keys are struck in the ignition. The car continues making a patterned clicking under the hood. So the car is dead making a clicking noise with the key stuck in it.

2009 chevy traverse wont start after hooking amp up car was fine

OK. you had the battery disconnected. Here is what you do. Turn on the key. The security light will begin to flash. Wait (about 10 minutes) with the key in the ON position. The security light will stop flashing. TURN OFF the key. Then, turn on the key and start the car. Security system is supposed to prevent theft for a 10 minute delay. This usually discourages any thief. This will work, You just need to be patient with the 10 minutes. It seems like an hour when you wait ten minutes for that security light to stop flashing.

Try system reboot, disconnect engine battery for two minutes, reconnect then turn ign. key to the 'on' position and wait two minutes before using a/c - heater controls. If it does not correct itself, driver side "blend actuator" may have failed.

On a chevy traverse i cant get the windows to work. i cant get key out of ignition, and right rear blinker doesnt work

Fuse under the right passenger dash. Fifth up on the right (blue 15 amp). It is called BCK/UP/STOP. All the same symptoms short in wiring harness for the trailer package caused the windows not to function, the right rear turn signal had no power, and the key was stuck in the ignition.
