Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I have a manual 1996 chevy s-10. Once I put my key in the ignition, before I start the car, I get the ringing sound which lets me know my key is still in the ignition. That's normal, the not so normal part is when I start the truck and start driving the ringing sound will not stop. It stays on for the entire time I am driving the truck. It only stops when I take the key out of the ignition. I have no service engine light on and besides the continaul ringing the truck runs fine. I am wondering do I just have to replace the ignition or do I have to go into the steering wheel colums due to some wire or sensor issue. Any advice would be most appreciatve since I am at a loss and losing my mind with the ringing noise. Thank you!
I would just disconnect or remove the ringer from the car. Under the dashboard. Listen until you locate it and remove it. They have a timing sensor that is suppose to turn off the ringer after a few seconds. It seems this timer has gone bad. if you replace the whole ringer circuit it may work. But if you have a fairly good memory to take out the key, you can just disconnect the ringer. But it is up to you.
