WOW That's weird and bad!
there should be lots of thing to be check on your car.
starting from battery, fuses, relays, solenoid to spark plugs.
fuel line, filters, and injector/carburetor.
if only your car looses power while driving then your fuel filter could be blocked. check and remove any dirt/blockages.
if starter (starting) fine, and car start normally, check the spark plugs.

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.

under the steering column, there are three or four little holes in the plastic covering. If you look inside, one of them (the one on the right side toward the dash) there is a brass pin inside. This is the pin to release the key. As far as the key not turning, I have had the same problem. The first time I replaced the ignition switch and that solved the problem. However, this makes no sense because the ignition switch has nothing to do with the tumbler being locked. GMC thinks that my anti theft system, which is inside the ignition cylinder is the problem. By removing the ignition switch, it reset the pass lock anti-theft system and temporarily fixed the problem. So, try removing the ignition switch and then plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, your in the same boat as I am, and we may both need new ignition cylinders.

I had the same problem with my 94 jetta, I would also have the alarm turn on as I connected the battery, if you lower the fuse box being careful not to disconnect anything, there is a box to the upper driver-side aria(that is if you are laying on your back looking up under the dash) this is the alarm control unit, there should be a white label on the wires indicating so (think it says alarm in German) theres a 6 pin(wire) connector and a 10 pin. unplug both connectors and look at the 6 pin connector. There is numbers where the wires are located on the connector, if you take a piece of wire and "bridge" wires 5 and 6 (The largest wires on the connector, red/red w/black stripe) your starter should work, any problem with the alarm system can cause the starter to be disabled. after bridging the wires or simply connecting them do not plug anything back into the alarm box, after this you standard vehicle alarm will be disabled permanently, but you will be able to start your car. If this dose not fix the problem you may have a defective starter, hope this helps.

these trucks are known for bad ignition switches in the steering colum. Look it up on youtube and you will see what I mean. If you are mechanicaly inept you could change it yourself.
