SOURCE: 1997 GMC Sierra Ignition Switch Replacement

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tengo una gmc la sierra 1500 5.7 vortec ano 1997 le acavo de reparar el motor pero no la puedo poner a tiempo

Clean off the crankshaft pulley at the front of the engine and put some paint on the timing marks. Start the car and turn off any accessories such as climate control, lights and the radio. Start the engine until it warms up.

Connect the timing light to the battery and then to the number one ignition wire. Locate the assembly line diagnostic link also called an ALDL and use a jump wire to connect the diagnostic terminal "B" to the ground terminal marked "A". The ALDL is located under the left side of the instrument panel. Not all models of the GMC Sierra have an ALDL.

  • Point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley to verify the need for adjustment. Adjust the timing by loosening the distributor mounting bolts and turning the distributor until the crankshaft timing mark lines up with the middle line of the timing light

  • Tighten the distributor mounting bolts and recheck the timing. Remove the jumper wire from the ALDL with the engine running. Turn the engine off and remove the tachometer and timing light. Reconnect the number one ignition wire.

    Are you talking about the check engine light? If so it needs to be reset with a code reader. then if it re illuminates you still have an issue.
