Hi Willy, It may be a problem of a worn key, but on that age of vehicle it's more likely to be a worn ignition barrel. Try and have the key replaced first and it that fails, be ready to replace the barrel and key. Happy new year and Regards John

I makes no difference if the key is in the switch (stuck or not) when removing the switch. The process is the same. Once removed you may want to take the lock to a local locksmith and have them check it. It may be much cheaper to service the lock than replace it. Also if you do opt for a new lock take it to the locksmith and have it keyed to your old key so you don;t have to carry two keys (one for the ignition & one for the doors).

Ignitin switch will not move with key How do you you replace.... remove the old one


Before you do anything with the ignition key check the gear shift lever is not stuck in gear or there is no problem with the transmission. I am assuming you have an automatic transmission.

The gear position P sensor might be faulty. There is an interlock between gear shift and the ignition switch.

My ignition is stuck in locked position and it ownt turn over


It sounds like the classic "switch needs replacing". You only need the tumbler replaced. Before installing the new tumbler take it and your door key to your local locksmith and they can key the new tumbler to work with the old key. This saves you from have to have two different keys.

My ignition switch wont turn got a new 1 cant get the old 1 off what can i do


Hello woodsvincent...The GM ignition switches are designed to be removed with the key in the on position. The lock tumblers in the old switch are likely stuck and/or worn, and if your key itself is worn that makes it worse. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and try another key thats in better shape if possible. Spray a little lubricant in the switch, wiggle and work the key and see if you can get it to turn to the on position...if you can, leave it there!! The switch can be replaced if you can't get it to turn, but it's a lot more labor intensive.
Let me know how it goes...and i will further advise.
Good luck and i hope this helps...

Hoe to remove the ignition switch in 05 ram 1500


Step1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing or unclipping them. Step2 Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft. Step3 Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheelmag-glass_10x10.gif and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column. Step4 Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out. Step5 Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder. Step6 Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.
