On a 2000 Olds Bravada the key won't turn off all the way and the key won't come out is the ignition cylinder tumblers bad orwould it be the switch and is it easy to change either one by yourself?

    Ignition will not turn off completely, when this occurs some gauges won't work also. however when all is well, it seems to shut back down when the transmission is shifted into park. the transmission also slips when sitting at an idle, could these all be related

What i do is sit and wait for the key to let go, or drive back and forth to straighten up my front weels. sometimes this works other times it does not. but i dont have the extra 300.00 that the gargage quoted me for the kit.

You need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly, the swtch may be secured with what you call shear bolts which may have to be drilled out, only you can decide if you are capable of doin this, new bolts should be supplied with the new swith, when you retighten the bolts, the heads will shear off when they are tight enough, the aim of these are to prevent theives making a quick ignition change to steal your car

2000 Olds Bravada Key operates all electrics but will not turn ignition Could key be faulty


ignition switch has a anti-theft type lockout in the electronic switch inside steering column - have also had mine do this due to bad connection at the battery - remove both battery bolts and clean terminal and make sure you have a good connection - have also had my starter go out and does same thing - all lights and electronics but no start - had all 3 of these on my bravada in one week!!

2000 Olds Bravada ignition


Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.
