I had this issue and found out that the battery needed to be replaced. once done everything worked. found this out by needing a boost by a tow truck and the vehicle started ran to the local walmart and got a battery evertything worked after that.
I HAVE A 2010 EQUINOX THAT IS HAVING THE SAME ISSUES. KEY WON'T COME OUT AND THE CAR IS COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN. WON'T CRANK, NO LIGHTS ETC. COULD THIS BE THE SAME PROBLEM?
I am Joe Jersey and that was my car a year and a half ago. It was the battery. I had it replaced and car has worked fine since then.
