My brand new key wont turn the ignition.


Go to the dealer any GM dealer, give them the VIN number and they will cut you a key to that vehicle. If the ignition has been replaced with one different to the OEM, you may have to replace the whole ignition switch.

Key ignition switch needs replaced lock cylinder how do i change key broke off inside damaged needs replaced wires broke off behind key switch


disconnect the battery and pull the air bag fuse out to diable the air bag. Remove the steering coulmb trim covers and expose the lock cylinder. If the lock cylinder can be turned and is functional then push in the bottom tab and turn the lock cylinder then pull the whole cylinder out. If the keys broke inside and the lock cylinder is not functional the bottom tab will need to be drilled out.

Absolutely! The only way to ensure your ignition switch will work properly again (even if you are able to get the key back to off and the accessories turn off) is to replace the switch. I hope you found this solution to solve your problem and wish you all the best. Take care!
