Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Ignition won't turn

I have a 99 Chevy Silverado Z71. There was a small "catch" when I turned off ignition and pulled key out. Later, placed key in ignition, would not turn. Key goes in and out just fine, simply cannot turn, not even to acc. Wheels were not turned when truck was parked, and I have tried the simple trick of turning steering wheel while trying to turn key. I have taken front and bottom off so that it is exposed. Cannot locate trouble simply by looking, am thinking perhaps a tumbler(s) broke off. Any ideas on problem, or tricks of prying cylinder/holder off?

    That was actually one of my original ideas, just not sure if I want to purchase a new cylinder and have new keys made to match if that's not the problem. I suppose that this will have to be at least attempted. I'm trying to be thrifty and spend as little as money as possible.... =)

    Thanks for helping!

Hi,
Likely one of your Speed Sensors (VSS) is bad. Sorry I don't know WHERE these are located, but get on some of the Chevy Truck forums for answers.

Check in your owner's manual. It should tell you how to program your locks to allow for them to unlock when the key is turned off. There are several different functions of your locks you can choose from and program them to do so.
