How to remove my Keys from 2003 envoy they are stuck

Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator
If the vehicle is equipped with a floor mounted console gear shifter, it has a ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column as an added safety feature. The ignition lock cylinder control actuators purpose is to prevent the steering wheel from being locked when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of a ignition lock cylinder control acutator, and a park position switch that is located in the A/T shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control acutator contains a pin that is spring loaded out to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when vehicle transmission is not in the Park position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the Park position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. GM has had some problems with this , If you have the console shifter there is a micro switch that when put into park a linkage pushes on this micro switch closing the circuit to ignition lock cylinder control actuator allowing you to remove your key ! These linkages fall out causing this problem ,an have electrical wiring problems as well ! I fixed a 2006 Chevy cobalt that had this same problem by getting a used shifter assembly at the auto salvage year ! cost $20.00 . There mite be a access hole under the bottom of the steering column with a release button up inside !

2005 GMC Envoy key is stuck in accessory position in the ignition with dead battery and transmission stuck in park. Will replacing battery help or is it security system lock down? If it is the security...

Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.

Key stuck in ingnition, does not turn all way back

Sticky ignition lock very common this time of year, get some WD-40 and spray it into the lock using the key to work it on and off until it feels free, depends on how bad it is you may need to take of the cover surrounding the lock to free it off. worst case you will need a new ignition lock.

Ignition key

I've found that the steering lock on some vehicles will interfere with the ignition lock and the steering wheel may have to be rocked to find the right position.
I think the purpose of this was to ensure that the steering lock is engaged before you can take the key out; don't ask me why - if the key is out and anyone tries to steal the car, the steering wheel will find the pin the first time the wheel is turned 90-180 degrees anyhow.

Hey. Your problem look to be a battery concert.
if you are sure of the battery is Ok.
Remove the Battery terminal inspect and clean.
And put back the teminals. Tight a little hard.
because one of the problems on this kind if vehicles are the battery conncetions. That came in misscontact.
After all of this . Check all the fuses Include the MEGA FUSES.
Replace as need. with the same rating.

Check the Red wire going to the fuse block. If is nessesary
Go to the autopart and buy a test light.

OK.... I hope this can be a start prosses to fix your car.
