No power to my gmc and now the key wont come out of the ignition?

It has to have power to remove the key. Jump it with another battery or charger. If you have power from the battery and no power to the inside. Check main fuses under the hood. If those are good, put power to the cigarette light, This will get the key out. Most likely have to replace the under hood fuse panel.

When I TURN MY KEY to start my car looses all power from the fuse block when I TURN THE KEY off the power back in the fuse block is back . how do I FIND A SHORT?

This is common. Most vehicles loose peripheral power when in "Crank" mode to put all available power to the starter. When you return the key to the "ON" position power is routed back to the non-essential starting systems.

Rewired my 98 expeditions radio now when I plug in the new deck i get no power

Your re wiring was done incorrectly....using a test light...check to see where your power is when the key is off, and when the key is on. Key being your ignition. The constant power wire (when key is off) should be used for internal memory, the power wire when the ignition is on should be your main power to the radio deck.

C70 no power and key stuck in ignition

Generally to get the key out spray internals thru key hole with DWC or similar electronic friendlt spray, some silicones are ok. Then gently move key up and down and turn off & on, wriggle a bit then try to remove key. If not ok then more spray and repeat. Generally this will remove the key, usually it is the security lock dops that are struck and holding the key in.
No power. If once the key is out and reinserted the power is is out then I would get the battery chkd as it could hv "fallen over". Not enough actual energy to turn the motor, u could test with another battery hooked. Otherwise the starter motor connection c/be faulty, or battery connections need cleaning. chk all wiring to starter motor by undoing & reconnecting all. cheers

2001 Pontiac Bonn. has no power to the inst. panel when turning the key to accessory position. Other problems that also exist are, no power to the following, radio, heater/acc controls, wipers. When...

I would have suspected the ignition switch, but it sounds like you've replaced it. It is internal to the housing you described. The first thing to do is to actually check for power at the ignition switch. There are 2 connectors going to it. One provides power, the other sends out power when key is turned. Check for good 12V at both the larger red wires, they should be battery powered and live all the time. If you have power on them then turn the key to run, you should have power on the orange wires (ignition feeds). The large yellow wire should only have power when key is in crank position. If there is not 12V at the red wires all the time then likely you have a large (maxi fuse 60A) under the hood electrical center blown. It could also be a blown fusible link coming off the starter battery post that feeds the electrical center if the fuses are good but no power across them.

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?

Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.

Turn key no warning lights come on but headlights work etc.

Yes. the starter is malfunction at this time. it could also be a ignition issue as well. here is a quick starter test procedure that will help you troubleshoot a bit.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.

Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.

Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.

Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.

Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.
