Question about 2003 Hummer H2
Some times they get stuck and some time they come out. It seems to have some thing to do with the power?
I finished my H2 key issue today. Here is what I had to do; You will need a flat head screw driver, a phillips head screw driver, a 2"round mirror, the smallest 6 point star alternate head screw driver, wire strippers, a 20x power magnifying glass or eyepiece a head mounted flashlight.
1. Disassemble the inner tray under the arm rest
2. remove the arm rest itself.
3. Using the 1/8" 6 point screw driver or bit remove the shift lever handle, turn the ignition on so you can put the lever in 2nd for easier access to the locking screw on the front side of the shift handle.
4. Use the flat head screw drive to pry up the cup holder and gear select console up.
5.Move the gear select handle (now a black 1/4" dia plastic rod w/a yellow 1" long spout at the top)
using your 2" mirror locate the connector at the bottom of the gear select handle under the main console. On the aft side of the handle, is a tab to remove the connector.
6. Using the flathead screw driver depress the tab and pull the connector out.
You will see 1 red wire, 1 black wire, one green wire, and a green and yellow wire, in the same outlet T
he yellow wire is the key/ignition wire. Mine was completely severed I had to use my 20x eyepiece to see how to properly splice it, and using the wire strippers remove the cheap insulation which easily cracks causing the yellow wire to crack, due to the poor engineering and material selection of the insulation. Once I removed the shielding and spliced it, I had to use the eyepiece to see the connector to put back the wires that also broke while I was trying to remove the connector. I then had to spice and reinsert all the wires one at a time into their respective slots. Remove these wires one by one so as not to get them mixed up. Reverse the original disassembly steps and you will have a once again working system. This took me about 2 hours working in the H2. It's easy to do, I am not mechanically inclined and have never done this before but my key comes out of the ignition and everything works fine. In spite of the cheap materials used by GM;'s lowest bidders. For the record I am a Italialn/German sports car driver, this H2 is one of the neatest vehicles we have ever owned. High gas prices low fuel economy don't mean diddly when your driving through a mud slide, snow storm, or rain storm, with 2' deep road puddles, or 3' foot high snow drifts while going up hill on a winding road. Never mind the naysayer and haters the way things are going Hummers are going to be the way to get where you need to get.

I had to remove plastic cover under steering wheel and push up on the button there, only then will my key remove. I drilled and 1/2" hole up through so now i just use my small finger to push it each time i need to remove the key. Then 2 weeks later i lost most all power to the inside of my H2 and no one can find where the trouble is thus far. with No windows, or door locks then it is unsafe to drive as i get stuck inside the unit, maybe someone can suggest something for me to try next. and then its for sale.
