The key is bounded up in the ignition cylinder from a bent lock tumbler
A new replacement ignition cylinder is the only remedy that will fix this problem

I have a 2004 Cadillac SRX V8 it wont start it will crank but no start i have change the spark plugs but i did not use OEM plugs used AC Delco irridium plugs. Why or what could be problem?

Quit throwing money at it and have the codes read. You could have bought a cheap code reader for what you paid for those plugs. Codes tell you a direction to look. I suggest you check fuses first. You have a panel under the hood and under the back seat. I usually just pull them one at a time and look I also wiggle the relays. This gets rid of corrosion problems. And people usually say thank you for fixing another problem. Caused by bad fuse or corrosion..

Cadillac srx will not start..checked battery and it is fine..any other suggestions?

Check fuel pressure with pressure tester, test power coming from coil packs to make sure that all spark plugs are getting power. You can test relays and fuses with an ohmmeter.

GM does have an anti-theft device that is know to cause problems.

First put in key and leave on for exactly 10 minutes, then as soon as the anti-theft light turns off, the immediately start the car.
