If I'm reading the problem right, the key will will not turn in the ignition cylinder in the steering column, Right? Try to Turn the steering wheel to left & right while turning the key. Some times the steering wheel lock sticks. if that does not work, Possibly depress the brake pedal while turning key. After that, I'm out of ideas.

under the steering column, there are three or four little holes in the plastic covering. If you look inside, one of them (the one on the right side toward the dash) there is a brass pin inside. This is the pin to release the key. As far as the key not turning, I have had the same problem. The first time I replaced the ignition switch and that solved the problem. However, this makes no sense because the ignition switch has nothing to do with the tumbler being locked. GMC thinks that my anti theft system, which is inside the ignition cylinder is the problem. By removing the ignition switch, it reset the pass lock anti-theft system and temporarily fixed the problem. So, try removing the ignition switch and then plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, your in the same boat as I am, and we may both need new ignition cylinders.

There is a fuse that controls a separate power wire to the memory. Check to see if it needs replaced, or if the wire has come unhooked. Besides the fuse box, there may be an in line fuse or fusible link in the wire. You can test this with an ohm meter for continuance.

The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.
With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.
