Question about 1984 Chevrolet Suburban
We drove home from dinner, parked my 1984 chev suburban and went inside. not even 5 minutes later I went to move it back further so my parents could get out of the driveway and there was nothing not even a click.
My dad is a super mechanic and got it to start by shimming the starter, but still nothing from the key in the ignition. It was very dark so he told me what to do the next day and said he could help soon. I checked all of the wiring to the starter, tried a different battery and made sure the terminals all had a good connection leading to the battery.
It seems as though the ignition switch is shot and I have never changed one before. My dad is constantly working and has 4 classic cars to work on as it is.
Is there any diagram or tips that you could tell me that would help me do this job?
an easier way to do this and a more reliable method is to just using the directions above, completely remove the locking system and put in a painless switch. Its used on a lot of older hot rods. and only controls the starter not the steering colum lock. Its your call on that one, but I would use this method because it wont break again.
