Sometimes if the steering wheel locked with pressure on it ( like being parked on an incline with the wheels turned or with the front tires against a curb the steering wheel locking pin will make it difficult to turn the ignition not saying this is in your case can also try wiggling the keep in and out up and down (gently as to not snap the key off) while try to turn it forward

This can also be a dead battery (Normally in newer vehicles), or broken lock cylinder in the Ignition. <---- Most likley

I was dealing with a 95 grand am that was having similar issues. The battery was weak in the car causing the car to fail to read the transponder in the key. This was caused by a weak alternator in the car I was working on. I recommend having them both tested at an AutoZone or similar parts store. For whatever reason, the Grand Am was very sensitive and although both were "ok" they needed to be 100% to keep it running right. I'm not sure about the loud noises but the rest was the same down to the lights staying on after the key was shut off. I hope that helps to cure some of it. Good luck!

Even though it may work sometimes, I'm not big fan of disconnecting the battery. It can cause more problems?
Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. Check your charging system.
If a relay in fuse box is clicking, put your hand on relays one at a time, fell for the vibration, when you find the relay, hopefully, the fuse box cover or your owners manual will ID the relay. then go from there. Let us know what the relay controls?

if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!
