Does the car cranks aND wont start or does not crank at all?
if it does not crank at all se if there is any aftermarket alarm system, if it is you will see a little red light flashing somewhere
also try to lock the car with the key and unlock it from outside soemtimes this will disable the antitheft system

    thank you for loving vegas, other thing what i can sujest before you tow it to the dealer is try to call one of those mobile locksmith guys and see if there is any problem with the key

    but before you do that contact the place or persone you bought it from and ask if this problem was there or if they can help you to get it to start

    also if when you tunr the ignition on all the lights and gages work good then leave the ignition on aply emergency brake and have some step on the brake and try to by pass the starter straight on the starter solenoid, but if you don't know how to do that then

    have someone hold the key all the way in like when is crancking and top on the starter motor with a small hammer if the car runs then do not shut it off keep it runing and take it to an auto repair to have the starter replace

I bought a 2000 savana van. never had problems starting, I jumped a relay once to get it started, then it continued not cranking, A friend came by days later to take a look and it turned over and...

I would replace the starter and /or battery. Both can be checked at a parts store. Sounds like you may have a short in the starter, draining the battery.

Im having trouble with my car not starting. I have tried jumping it but if that works at all it takes like 20 mins. Last time i tried to do that i lost all power and now nothing works but the theft light....

I believe it is electrical. Since your theft light is on now, the antitheft could be the reason your car did not start in the first place.
If you have a model with the keypad on the door, try and enter the code without using a remote. Then try to start the vehicle. If that does not work, disconnect the negative post of your battery for 10 minutes and then reattach it.
Repeat the entering of the code on the keypad and then try to start the car.
Some of the ignition keys have a computer chip in them that talks to the antitheft unit. If your chip is broke, the vehicle will not recognize you. The deaaler is about the only place to go for this problem. You can get keys online, but you don't know if it is the car part or the key part that is bad.

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.
