    What years of 1999 Chevy Cavalier are compatible with ignition cylinder. Looking for any compatible years or models??


    1995 to 2001 Cavalier & Pontiac Sunfire ignition lock cylinders are the same. Be advised that your car has an anti theft system. If you plan on installing a used cylinder from another car, you will need to have the replacement cylinder "coded" to your original key OR have a key with the same resistor value as your original key, cut for the replacement cylinder [new or used] Without doing this, the car will not start.

    93" k1500 suburban- ignition key


    I just saw your newer post..or the original post with more information available.

    Your K1500 has the ignition switch positioned on the steering column. The switch is control via a linkage rod that is actuated from the key cylinder.(which may have failed.) But I suspect your problems may be in the switch itself.

    See the procedure here at Just Answer Chevy to remove and install a new switch:
    Fix Your Chevy With Your Own Hand

    PS: After removing the actuator rod see if the lock cylinder rotates freely...if it does the switch is the source of your problem.
