Question about 2002 GMC Envoy
Battery was dead. key was put in ignition and became stuck. once the key came out the battery was replaced now the key will not turn in the iginition
This could have been caused by any number of issues, I am going to make some assumptions to try and help with this. When you parked the vehicle the transmission may have been in park, but the linkage and associated sensors may not have been. When you turned the key to "OFF" with the linkage or sensors "NOT" in park this would explain why the key would not come out of ignition. If you forced the key to get it out of the ignition, then with your ignition being bound-up due to the vehicle not being in park is why you can not turn the key now (This is just one possibility). If this vehicle is equipped with PASS-LOCK security built into the ignition there is the possibility that the Ignition Switch and the Pass-Lock Sensor are not in sequence and would cause this type of failure. Your Ignition Switch could be fouled from Dirt, Dust build-up, Pocket Lint, or any foreign debris. Ignition Switch tumblers could be worn, Bent Key. This could also be caused by using the steering wheel to assist yourself when getting out of the vehicle (Binding the steering column and key-switch assembly). These are just a few examples, Your best bet would be to take the vehicle to and authorized service to be checked and repaired. Hope this helps !

If they key know doesn't work and it still opens your doors. then it sounds like your going to need your ignition replaced

Probably because your steering lock is activated, if not then you have forced the ignition too much and it needs to be replaced.
Try the following:
Insert Key in ignition
Turn Steering Wheel to left side as much as it can when engine isnt started (apply some force), then try to see if key will turn in ignition.
If it doesn't work: Try same maneuver but turn Steering Wheel to the right instead.
