SOURCE: 1997 GMC Sierra Truck Ignition Switch

its a long process,you need a steering wheel puller, once its off take the hazard button assembly out, take the turn signal loose, pull old ignition out, carefully install new one, and reverse procedure and always if u get confused i would highly recomend
a chiltons manual they explain things great

SOURCE: 1997 GMC Sierra Ignition Switch Replacement

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before you do anything pull the HVAC fuse in the under-hood fuse box for 30 seconds. Reinstall the fuse. Turn the key to the run position. You should hear the HVAC going through a self test. Don't touch anything until it is done. Once its done, about 45 seconds or start up the vehicle and see if everything is working.

Sometimes it takes several tries to get it to work.

What are the tell tail signs of a faulty ignition switch


Instruments going dead, ect. If you can turn the key and not all the lights come on, or if the blower doesnt work and turning the key slowly it starts blowing. GM trucks have a lot of issues with the ign switch and also the switch on the trans if it wont crank.

Truck sometimes starts and sometimes wont. i hear a clicking soun


Unbolt and clean your battery terminals if dirty or corroded, preferably replace the bolts (good auto parts stores stock them, and they take some effort to remove and replace them but it's necessary to properly clean the terminals anyway) charge, jump or replace battery ... connect battery terminals and don't over tighten ... start the truck, check charging system gauges confirm charging voltage over 12V 13.8V-14.5V and lights should be bright as normal ... if so, you may be fixed ... if not you have charging system issues, that will be the next post if needed.
