When you turn the key in the off position, it turns the car completely off. It prevents the car's battery from being drained.

Apart from the obvious electrical connections, you could try checking each fuse. Sometimes they appear to be ok but 1 end of the fuse may be broken and touches intermittently. Try lightly tapping each fuse 1 at a time with the handle of a screwdriver and see if anything goes on and off.

When I TURN MY KEY to start my car looses all power from the fuse block when I TURN THE KEY off the power back in the fuse block is back . how do I FIND A SHORT?

This is common. Most vehicles loose peripheral power when in "Crank" mode to put all available power to the starter. When you return the key to the "ON" position power is routed back to the non-essential starting systems.

What shuts off power to fuel pump when key is turned off on a 94 GMCwith 350 engine

Power is fed to the pump by a fuel pump relay. The relay is powered by a fuse but is triggered by the computer. So when you turn the key on, the computer triggers the relay, the relay closes and turns on the fuel pump. Power is cut off only when the key is shut off and the computer kills the trigger signal to the relay

C70 no power and key stuck in ignition

Generally to get the key out spray internals thru key hole with DWC or similar electronic friendlt spray, some silicones are ok. Then gently move key up and down and turn off & on, wriggle a bit then try to remove key. If not ok then more spray and repeat. Generally this will remove the key, usually it is the security lock dops that are struck and holding the key in.
No power. If once the key is out and reinserted the power is is out then I would get the battery chkd as it could hv "fallen over". Not enough actual energy to turn the motor, u could test with another battery hooked. Otherwise the starter motor connection c/be faulty, or battery connections need cleaning. chk all wiring to starter motor by undoing & reconnecting all. cheers

2001 Pontiac Bonn. has no power to the inst. panel when turning the key to accessory position. Other problems that also exist are, no power to the following, radio, heater/acc controls, wipers. When...

I would have suspected the ignition switch, but it sounds like you've replaced it. It is internal to the housing you described. The first thing to do is to actually check for power at the ignition switch. There are 2 connectors going to it. One provides power, the other sends out power when key is turned. Check for good 12V at both the larger red wires, they should be battery powered and live all the time. If you have power on them then turn the key to run, you should have power on the orange wires (ignition feeds). The large yellow wire should only have power when key is in crank position. If there is not 12V at the red wires all the time then likely you have a large (maxi fuse 60A) under the hood electrical center blown. It could also be a blown fusible link coming off the starter battery post that feeds the electrical center if the fuses are good but no power across them.

Power issues... Total power loss only when turning key to "on".

Sounds like poor battery circuit connection breaking down under load. Make sure battery is charged and battery connections are clean and tight. Otherwise, the circuits will have to be traced further back.

Can not turn key in

do you have power locks? mechanically cant turn the key? or when you turn the key nothing happens? Could be a simple as a fuse. Check the one labeled "pwr acc" for power accessories.
