Possible poor battery cable or cable connection. Remove the cable terminals from the battery, always remove ground or negative first! Use a small brass brush to clean the terminals also clean the connections too. Next follow the ground cable, to where it mounts to the body or engine. Remove this connection and clean both surfaces of cable and mounting point; re-install with proper torque on bolt. Be certain to check the cables for any short bends, thses can cause the inner cable to break and have poor connections Look for a gronding strap that runs from the firewall to engine, insure its clean with good connections. Then check the connections at the alternator, be certain that these too are clean and tight. After which reconnect cables to battery positive first ground last. Recharge the battery if she works great, you found the problem. If you still have issues it would appear your battery has or is loosing a cell and may need replace. This can be checked at an autoparts store. Lastly may be issues with charging system, alternator?

I hope this may have assited you,

My 2008 SRS won't start and the trunk won't open. It was fine when I drove it all yesterday. I did get gas and put the 3rd row down. The radio works so I don't think it's the battery, but maybe. Any...

Turn your head lights on and try starting it if your lights dim way down or go out. try jump starting it. Your trunk release takes more power than your radio to work.

My 2006 chevy trailblazer 2wd 6cyl wont start. makes clicking noise, then nothing lights/radio etc work but wont start what is it

You got a jump and it ran fine? It's your battery. The lights and radio are much easier for a battery to handle than spinning a car engine. Again, if all you needed was a jump, you have a bad battery.

Went to start the car this morning and wouldnt turn over. Tried on a couple of occasions and was not even near to starting. All lights, radio, heater, etc working okay and not had any problems ever before...

Try jump starting, see if it starts then. Lights, radio, etc.. don't draw nearly the amps that your starter does. Batteries don't always give warning when then decide to "go south". If you can get it started by jump starting, stop by a local Autozone, Advance, etc.. auto parts store and have them do a charging system test and to load test your battery. They offer this service for FREE
Another Note: When was timing belt last replaced? If it's a 325 of that year it should be done every 60k (If it's 318 ignore the above belt issue)

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
