Question about 1994 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Key stuck in on position on 94 Jimmy

Key was a little stiff turning on. Wouldn't shift, so went to turn the key off and would only turn towards start again, played with the key and the shift, and finally would release shift and key. Got home key stuck, won't turn towards either. Tried turning wheel maxed in both directions while playing with the key, no use. Key in switch jiggles, but switch won't move. Keep trying cranked wheel and key jiggle, or will I have to drop the tilt wheel steering column and access it from the back?

Key is stuck and everything is dead


Tried moving the steering wheel firmly in one direction or the other while (gently!) attempting to turn the key? Or look for a little lever that your knuckle sometimes hits when you do turn the key.

Try the reset for the key switch , hook up battery charger or maintainer to battery then turn key on do not crank engine leave key in on position for ten minutes , repeat a total of three times then turn key switch to off position after third cycle then remove key . Then reinstall key to ignition switch then crank the engine over and see if that fixes your issue .

The most commonly diagnosed component is the shifter and/or shifter solenoid on your Impala.
GM issued a bulletin on this problem. Contact your dealer, they are aware of the problem and you could be covered under warranty. Below is a copy of the bulletin.

I have towed several of these with same problem. Sounds like to me it needs to go back in for the ignition switch again. Unless it's not going into park. If it's not going into park it would be a shift linkage issue and needs to be adjusted. Chris J.C. Towing & Recovery

Key gets stuck in ignition


My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.

The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.
