SOURCE: unable to insert key into ignition switch

Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!

SOURCE: ignition switch repair

The switch is on top of the steering column just behind the lower dash panel. Undo lower panel remove the steering column bolts upper and lower. Drop column and you will see it. The lock cylinder is a whole other story that will require special tools. Especially with a tilt and telescopic column.

SOURCE: I have a 1990 cadillac deville, it was running

If you're saying it turnes over but doesn't start I think of two things. If it is not getting power to the spark plugs I think it is the ignition module inside the distributor(small black box on bottom inside). If it is getting power to the spark plugs I would check the fuel pressure. If no or little fuel then fuel filter and or the fuel pump.

A 99 deville the key want turn to unlock trunck what to do.


Spray lube in the lock cylinder. Most likely you have to open it from the inside of the trunk and replace the lock cylinder. Remove the back seat to get in the trunk. This is the biggest problem with key FOBs. No one opens a door or trunk with the key. The cylinders corrode and lock up the pins on the inside of them.

The car will turn over but won`t start but if I turn the key on and jump the starter it starts


Sounds like the ignition switch has gone kaput. The ignition switch come in two pieces, an electrical switch and a mechanical switch.

The switch electrical portion can be replaced separatly from the mechanical portion (tumbler that the key engages). It is not a real difficult repair but requires some mechanical knowlege of how the column is assembled.

This can be verified with electrical test equipment prior to buying a new electrical switch.

Ok i have a 99 deville im familiar with the V.A.T.S problem these cars are having, well my car is doing the same thing . security light flashing, anti teft system problem on my dash, and for some reason...


Check out this site. Dont get a new ignition. You can bypass this yourself for much cheaper. As far as if he'll give you a new key or not, i dont know. There are 15 different possible vats keys. So the odds that yours will be compatable are 1 in 15. Not to mention that there are 3 parts in a vats system, The key, the lock cylinder, and the TDM. Just hope its not the TDM

1998 Cadillac deville. It says eject key Starting disabled


Hello, You may have a ignition lock cylinder failure, The two wires coming off the lock cylinder will break and the resistence signal from the key will not get to the computer. To repair you need to replace the lock cylinder, get a new key with the same resistence value as your old key. This is not a simple task. The driver air bag. steering wheel, air bag coil, signal light switch, key buzzer switch have to come out, The wires from the lock cylinder run down inside the steering column. Hope this helps you.

How do u fix a starting disable problem on a 1999 cadillac deville


The problem is either the key and or the ignition switch. The key has aresistor and the engine module reads this value when you start the car. If it is not the correct value the car will not start. MOST LIKELY THE WIRE(S) yhat come off the ignition lock cylinder are broke. This is a common failure. To correct a new ignition lock cylinder and key will be required to get the car to run

My key will not enter the ignition in my 2004 cadillac deville. It was working OK this morning. Now it won't.


One of the tumblers in the lock cylinder has fallen and is jamming key. Cylinder will need replacing. Try gently tapping on cylinder ring and key while trying to insert key . If you do get it to turn, don't shut it off till you can get it somewhere to replace cylinder.
