WOW -sounds like its haunted !!
Seriously though - it would seem you have a short circuit or possibly a fused relay or solid state switch/relay. You can try to have the fault codes read to indicate a problem, or, try removing relays and fuses step by step to see if you can isolate the area or services causing the problem - its a long drawn out method but may pay dividends - your time is cheaper than a workshops !
hope this helps - good luck.

I cannot get the key to turn in the ignition. The ignition seems locked.

Before turning the key, try moving the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key. Sometimes on power steering equipped vehicles when they are turned off and the wheel isn't straight, it will put excess pressure on the ignition lock cylinder. Moving the steering wheel may ferr it up.

The ignition switch does not turn over

If it is a chevy then the ignition switch is down by the bottom of the steering column. There will be a rod coming from the top of the column to the ignition switch. Some times all it needs is to be adjusted. It is held on by 2 bolts. With the key in the off setting, loosen the 2 bolts and move the switch back a little and then tighten them up. keep doing this in tell it works every time. If it still does not work then you should replace the switch.
