SOURCE: key stuck in ignition of Trailblazer.

There is a small 1/4'' oblong cover plate on the underside of the stearing column. Pop this out and there is a button you push in ( like the Crysler key relase) and this will allow you to remove the key.

SOURCE: A 2008 Chevrolet Equinox that is dead

It sounds like a dead battery or battery connections. The keys won't come out, because there is a positive feed wire to the lock cylinder that will not allow it to turn the lock position when there is no power.

I have no power anywhere. i can jump solenoid and engine turns over but no fire. i suspect ignition switch but would that cause no power through out the car?

The fact that you can turn the engine but not get it to fire would suggest the battery is ok. The fact that you have no headlights, dash lights etc. would point to blown fuse/fuses. Even if the ignition switch was faulty you should still be able to switch the headlights on. I would check the fuses and the ignition switch wiring.

Radio will not power off with ignition switch

On some vehicles, this is normal. The radio will not stop playing until the door is opened....I have no way of knowing if this applies to your vehicle. As for "Fuse 19" is absolutely impossible to look anything up to see everything this fuse is protecting. If you would like good answers that may possibly help you fix your vehicle, it would be wise to take the time to post the YEAR, MAKE, MODEL and ENGINE SIZE of the vehicle you are talking about.

Also, most modern automobiles have several fuse blocks...when you talk about fuse 19, it would be wise to mention WHICH fuse 19.. in the engine compartment fuse block? In the fuse block under the dash? is it a fuse block under a rear seat? Is it a fuse block in the luggage compartment? Etc... If you are not really sure of the best way to describe it, try looking it up in the Owner's Manual.

That way, those of us that work with cars on a daily basis will understand the nature of your problem better.

I was sitting at a stop light and the car died and smoke came from steering column ever thing else works light radio etc but when you turn the key there is nothing no idiot lights no miles nothing the car...

Maybe the ignition switch burned up. A lot of juice travels through them and it has happened.
What is confusing is, lights will work without the switch. You should be able to turn lights on without the key in the ignition. But a radio normally needs the ignition turned to ACC (accessory) or ON. And some when left on don't turn off with the key off until the door is opened.

Possibly the ignition melted and is affected to where the radio still gets power as if it was in the ACC position

Turning key forward to start ,has some resistance. can you adjust actuator rod or just replace ignition switch? releasing key still powers radio,etc.

I think that you need to investigate what is making the resistance. I would remove the ignition switch, give some reisitance on the rod, and see of the key, or the linkage, including the actuator rod, are binding. There are pieces that get dry and make resistance, like you describe...

Engine starts for 3 seconds and then shuts down, radio,locks,trunk release,interior lights do not work, clock/radio display shows time but nothing from radio

This could be a tricky one - so just go through the options methodically untill you effect a repair.

If it has an immobiliser fitted - try using another key. Sometims the chip in the key fails.

If you did anything prior to this problem - jetwashing, using a mobile phone near the steering column, serious work etc - try these areas first.

Check alternator function.
Check fuses.
Check fuel level.
Look for leaks.
Check belts condition.

It is behaving like a major electrical fault. Check the BIG fuses in the engine bay fusebox. After this - check that the ignition switch is supplying a switched live feed when in the "on" position.
It could be a faulty switch contact. Possible if you have uprated lights somewhere.

Radio display lights stay on after power is cut from engine and key is removed from ignition. Radio buttons fail intermittently

the radio sounds as if they are connected to a constant power supply as well as if that's not the case a faulty radio connection or radio itself is present look to see where the radio lead wire is connected to
