Could of spilled something on the keyboard or there are some tiny objects that fell in under the keys that make the keys not respond. If that does not work, please let us know more about the buttons. ie: The button wiggles a lil or the button does not feel like the others when pressed. If you are comfortable with this. Try taking the button from the laptop and inspect whats under it. Also let us know if all the buttons stopped all at once or did it start with one and followed by with the rest that are not working. Thanks for reading and I hope you get the problem fixed =)

2005 trailblazer ignition key will not turn

If you had a dead battery, its likely the code in the radio part of the key no longer is synchronised with the car. Only a dealer can fix that I'm afraid, unless there is a guidance (check, changing the keyfob battery for example) in the car's handbook. Good luck.
Note that when it sometimes (very occasionally) doesn't work its usually due to some kind of radio interfererence just at that moment nearby. There are cases reported here in UK where several neighbours at the same time can't use their car because of some localised radio interference problems.

2001 Chev Suburban remote start won't start and now with the key there is nothing.

The electronics involved are too sophisticated to diagnose without electronic kit. Call out a mobile car electronics repair company to come and test the car and tell you what is wrong.

M Light in the dash came on and stays on periodly,

Some cars are sadly weak from the factory. A pot hole can do damage like nothing else as the g forces are those of an accident yet there is nothing obvious that is crashed from the outside. This is going to be a hunt and peck and a hands on repair. I suggest you take this to a qualified Olds mechanic. Ask around - do a local search and you will find a qualified GM mechanic.

As for the ignition - only put one key in the ignition the extra keys weigh down the unit and will ruin them - some quicker than others. So be sure -- only the ignition key on that small key ring spells a longer life.

Van took a few tries to start. Then once off nothing worked.

Might be time for a tune up?

Does your car have a anti-theft system that uses a resistor in the key? I have had several instances when I tried to start the my '95 GM auto, runs perfect normally, but nothing. I traced it back to the key. Probably not always put in correctly.

Thanks for your question at

Could be.

Also the jiggling thing could be a coincidence. :0)
