Won't turn off with key until you put it back in KOEO

Won't turn off with...

Won't turn off with key until you put it back in KOEO position, high idle, reduced engine power, and a buzzing noise coming from the OnStar microphones in the headboard front and back.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

Yes steering wheel works fine key is okay and not worn out. It's a 2003 Tahoe*****

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am very mechanically inclined. I've ran codes We have replaced electronic throttle. If you have an email address I can probably send you a video of what's going on. If not I can just explain it but it might take a minute.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of off the top of my head

When I turn the high beams on it kills engine and you hear the electronic throttle surge. When I pull the relays problem goes away, but no lights. When I low beams are on they are weak. With ignition on you can shift from park with no break
Sounds now like a bad ground somewhere. I will look at some of the ground locations when i can. I'm not anywhere that i can do that right now
