That can be anything from the ignition switch, to the key going bad, to some wiring. First try to go to advance auto, and see if they can run a diagnostics check. Or if you want, you can disconnect the positive battery terminal, or negative, and let it sit without power for a few hours. That will reset the computer on the vehicle. If that will not work, take it to your local Chevrolet dealer, that has the repair shop, and have them look at it. The ignition is a funky little thing. My 2002 Chevrolet Malibu ignition just stopped working on me, I pulled the switch out and replaced it. But it never caused the car to cut off on me. It just seized the key in there and wouldn't release it.
Good luck to you.

Do you hear anything at all when you turn the key?

If not probably the battery...kaput. (How old is the battery?)
More than three years? I'd start there and make sure you check to see if you have a warranty position on it as well...

Engine wont start every time

try switching your key on and off about three times waiting about 2 seconds inbetween turning it on and off then see if it starts right up if so it indicates a weak fuel pump

I crank my avalanche 2002 about 3 times before starting could be the fuel pump

sounds like the check valve in the pump is letting the fuel drain back try just cycling key a few times before starting this will prime pump and lines. if cranks up this is most likely cause a fuel pressure gauge will confirm

2002 chevy avalanche died at a stop light and now wont start back up. it just cranks.

Those are known for having the fuel pump go out. Take the gas cap off, open the little steel door with a screwdriver and have someone turn the key forward, not cranking it over, just turn it until all the dash lights come on and see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on for about 2 seconds. You definitely need 2 people to do this. If you can hear the fuel pump then its probally not getting spark.

Ignition is locked, recently changed battery & now can not start truck. tried reseting alarm by unhooking battery, turned steering wheel also played w/ gear shifter to no avail. 2002 avalanche

Turn on the ignition with engine OFF.
Try to start engine, then release the key to ON
Wait 10 or more minutes till SECURITY TELLTALE turns OFF.
Turn OFF the ignition, wait 5 seconds.
Repeat this procedure 3 more times, it takes 30 minutes.
You must turn the ignition key OFF before starting the engine.
To be on the safe side OFF means take the key off, and hold on your hand for 5 seconds.
If you missed something visit GM dealer, and they gladly will provide you a print out of this procedure.

Avalanche alarm goes off and key wont start

Try disconnecting the battery cable for a few minutes. This may clear the security code and allow the normal key to operate. The sensor in your tire may have gotten damaged when it was repaired (this is not uncommon). The solution, take it to a tire store, they can change the sensor if needed.

My 2002 Chevy Avalanche starts briefly then turns off What could be the problem?

Possible bad engine crank sensor. Electronic Control Module provides initial timing for start then depends on the crank sensor once started for timing and firing
