Could be the diode pack on the alternator (or a short somewhere else). Disconnect the alternator to find out.

93 gmc safari odometer stopped working, then started again, then turns over but won't start.

It could be a bad fuse or a bad fuel pump not providing fuel for the car. It could also be an issue with the timing belt.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 1995 safari van charged battery and took it off charger it then wouln;t start so i boosted it, then started took it for a drive and then shut it off it wouldnt start whats wrong with it?

May have a bad starter solenoid and the extra boost is whats needed to get it to work.
May also have a dead cell in the battery. Use a multi meter and test the battery. Should have about 12.6 volts. 12 volts would not be a full charge. May even want to take the battery to a parts store and have it tested unless you have a tester to check the amps.

Key stuck in ignition of my 94 gmc safari, had to unhook the battery to turn the van off. Do I have to replace my ignition, or is there anything else I can try first?

Be sure to check your charging system, it usually self destructs when battery is disconnected. what happens is the voltage regulator goes full out, and fries diodes...

93 GMC Suburban Wont Turn Over

I may not be all the way in park or the safety neutral switch in not working. Did you try and start it in Neutral? Also move your shifter around while the key is engauged and see if it will start.
