2000 Olds Bravada ignition

My 2000 olds bravada wont start. I put the key in the ignotion and when i turned it it clicked none of the gagues would come on. Non of the lights will come on nothing electrical will work. The battery is fine full charge, and i even tried to jump it just in case but it didnt work. the steering wheel is unlocked but it will not allow me to take the car out of park. Is this and ignition switch, one of the modules in the fuse box, or something else, where do i start checking.

Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.

My 1998 Olds Bravada has the key stuck in the ignition. I paid to have a new ignition key cylinder put in, but the new one does the same thing. The key will start the car etc. but won't come out of...


I know in the newer versions of the Bravada, Trailblazers, Envoys, the ignition switch itself is always the culprit. Not the switch the key goes in, but it's located under the steering wheel column. I know how to replace the newer ones but not yours. That's the first place I'd look.

2000 Olds Bravada Key operates all electrics but will not turn ignition Could key be faulty


ignition switch has a anti-theft type lockout in the electronic switch inside steering column - have also had mine do this due to bad connection at the battery - remove both battery bolts and clean terminal and make sure you have a good connection - have also had my starter go out and does same thing - all lights and electronics but no start - had all 3 of these on my bravada in one week!!

On a 2000 olds Bravada the key wont turn off all the way


you need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly, the swtch may be secured with what you call shear bolts which may have to be drilled out, only you can decide if you are capable of doin this, new bolts should be supplied with the new swith, when you retighten the bolts, the heads will shear off when they are tight enough, the aim of these are to prevent theives making a quick ignition change to steal your car

I would suspect the ignition switch in the column is the issue. NOT where you place the key but the electronic part behind the key. Hope this helps
