Disconnect stering shaft for the #3 plug. I have no power at all

When I changed my plugs on my 98 GMC Jimmy had to disconnect stering shaft for the #3 plug, after putting everything back together I have no power at all and can't even remove my key how do I fix this?
I'm not sure if it is the alarm system that is causing the problem or not...When I was in the prosses of removing the stering shaft, I heard a winding noise as if a wind-up toy was winding down, I heard this near the fuse box or maybe a little beneith the fuse box. not sure what it was... I'm stumped. Any help would be great.

How do I replace the num 3 spark plug on 98 gmc jimmy

Use a socket 5/8 with swivel extension through wheel well. This is the best way to get to all the plugs via wheel well. You don't have to touch the steering shaft at all. I have done a tune up on mine more times than I can remember

1999 GMC Jimmy 4.3 gets P0303 (#3 misfire) Changed plugs, cap, rotor, wires. Did not help. Read GM tech bulletin and replaced fuel injection system from SCPI to MFI. Did not work. Checked #3 plug again...

Yes . You need an ohm/ volt meter. First check the injector, at the leads of the injector you should have 11 to 15 ohms. At the injector plug with the ignition on you should have 12 volts at one of the wires. To check for fire at the plug put the meter leads on the plug leads and crank the engine. the voltage should spike. My guess is that you have a bad wire on the #3 injector. All the injectors will have 12 volts with key on. The ECM grounds the injectors according to where the crank/cam sensor is. On your vehicle it fires 2 cylinders at a time. This is why I say you have a bad /broken wire. At the #3 injector plug you can also check for ground to the ECM. Instead of putting both leads to the plug you have to first find the ECM wire, then put the meter leads to that wire and ground on the battery. Again it should spike in ohms

I have a 98 GMC Jimmy. I have the part to replace the heater actuator door. The problems is I cant get the oval shaped hole to slide onto the shaft.

If you plug the new part in. Turn your heat or defrost selector on with the key on engine off. This will able the actuator to move and line your hole up to your rod. Once its aligned slide it on and bolt it into place.

I have a 98 gmc 4x4 jimmy and the freeze plug burst at the motor mount drivers side. i am still driving it but keeping the water filled in thr radiator conwstantly. can i keep doing this or will it do more...

A 2 hour trip with a freeze plug leaking is almost a guarantee that you will be buying a new engine. Stop driving it until you can get the freeze plug fixed. It will only take an hour or so to change it if your friend has an skill at car repairs. Hope this helps.
