Sounds like a bad connection at the battery, or one of the main power circuits to the key switch has a blown fuse.
Do the headlights or anything not connected to the key switch work ?

Terrian won't start boosted yesterday and then checked battery and it was charged right up ran good all day. Went to start this am and nothing the key won't come out of ignition

If key won't come out of ignition the problem is most likely park shift interlock. The park shift interlock is a device that won't allow vehicle to be started unless it is in park. Also the cable could be stuck.

Key turns, but nothing no noise, no anything electrical. Will not shift, automatic, stuck in park.

This just happened to me just a couple of weeks ago after I replaced the battery in my van. I did not clean the terminals on the cables before re-attaching them to my new battery and after a few days my van just quit. Once I cleaned the inside of the battery cables my van has worked fine ever since. Check those and hopefully that will be your problem.

Transmission/electrical issue?

You think it is in park but it read reverse because it didn't move With electronic transmissions you have to run the fault codes to find what is happening. Unless it is in park or neutral then nothing concerning the starter will work. If the TCM is faulty then servos/solenoids are not working and there will be no clutch pack or band operation and it will appear in park. Even the torque converter clutch will not be working and you will get nothing in the transmission.

My 1999 Pontiac Sunfire GT 2.4L Automatic Gear Selector is broken

you car likely thinks its stuck in reverse, which it may be... even if you can roll it. you'll need to find a way to either get it into park or neutral, normally this can be done by the actual linkages under the shift console or from underneath the car.

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now

the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

95 ford econoline will not shift out of park

with the key off shift to neutral,while holding the brake to keep it from rolling away,then start it then shift into drive--once home replace the brake switch maybe thats all you will need to do.

Turn key, nothing happens

It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.
