Sound like a wire loose. could be the earth cable to the engine, or the main power cable from the battery to the fuse box/ignition switch/starter.

Had new key intion on now my lights won;t flip up or down,

I would take it back to whoever did the install, and see if they will correct it. Is your light switch to flip up the lights on the steering column? Possible they pinched or inadvertently pulled a wire loose. I know on toyotas the flip up lights work off the light stalk, independent altogether of the ignition switch.

95 Tbird won't turn off with key

Go under the dash and check to see if the ignition starter switch is coming apart is the first thing to check. The switch is operated by a long rod from the ignition switch, it is near the base of the steering column tube on top of it. The other poss is that the tilt steering is going south and needs new parts for the rod actuator down to the switch.

My steering wheel is stuck and when I put my key in it won't turn either. It starts to turn but won't go all the way

hi,it maybe a good idea to remove the steering collum covers to visually inspect it can be the ignition bolt just being loose or the steering lock or ignition it self is on its way out.

Key stuck in ignition but it will turn, and steering column won't lock and car won't start.

you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing!

2003 s-10 truck would start and then shut off immediately and security light would come on. now truck will start and run but all the lights are on, on the dash. what could the problem be ?????

Your ignition switch need to be replaced.
Just some minor tweaks to the procedure by me. Hope this helps some of you. This is applies to a 1997 Blazer LT AWD, and S10, Sonoma's.

First make sure the key is in the “OFF” position. Disconnect the negative battery terminal, and disable the air bag. Do this by removing the air bag fuse and disconnecting the yellow connector at the base of the steering column. Remember to disconnect the negative battery terminal first.

Next remove all the access panels and assess the situation. First remove the lower panel, 7mm Hex fasteners, then loosen the upper panel with 7mm Hex fasteners and torque drive (T25 size).

Now remove the lower steering wheel column cover. It has two T25 torque fasteners that are accessed from the underside. Note the two hooks on the rear of the cover. Now remove the top steering wheel cover. Two E6 series Torx fasteners (I read a std ¼ drive 3/32socket, might work, but I think using the right tools is better) are visible (see explanation below). Note the one on the driver’s side wont fall out after you loosen it, it has a lock nut to keep from falling out.
I read that you don’t need to remove the top cover, but I found it much easier with it removed. I used a Dremel tool to cut a **** just under the key cylinder. Now GENTLY spread the plastic enough to come around the approx. 0.75” Dia. key housing. It’s easier with the tilt down all the way. The rubber cover on the lower cover will hide the cut.

Next remove the small white connector from the top of the metal, key “tumbler”. Rotate the switch towards the passenger seat to remove. This gets the small wires out of the way so you can get to the upper left fastener.

Now you’re ready to remove the switch. Reverse Torx fasteners hold the switch in. These are the same kind of fasteners as earlier. They require an “E” series socket. Basically the fastener looks just like the business end of a torque screwdriver. It is an E3, or E4 socket. I found an E4 at Sears Hardware. It fit a bit loose but it worked. With some down pressure and slight side pressure they were removed. BE CAREFULL!!! Note the white plastic parts toward the front of the car. For the lower right fastener the white part goes on the outside of the black plastic switch, when things go back together.

Now go back underneath and remove the harness at the main block. Use a 9/32 socket to loosen center fastener (mine was red). There are basically three harnesses in one. The two outside ones are for the turn signals. Remember orientation of the harness block, relieves worry when you go back to install the new harness. These two out side harnesses come out from the bottom/back side of the ignition switch harness. Once loose, cut the zip ties and remove the switch.

Now just put everything back in reverse order. Connected the battery and test the switch before reassembling everything. When the air bag is disabled the air bag light will stay on.

Symptoms of a bad ign switch are:
VERY common on 1997's and newer - almost a "this WILL happen" it's not a matter of "if" but "when"

mysterious tranny codes, usually related to electrical ...engine literally shutting off for no apparent reason - very dangerous ... if you're turning left at an intersection and then all-of-a-sudden, engine cuts out, loss of power steering, steering locks, brake booster gone - not fun!! or your cluster lights act up.. I'd probably be looking at shorts, bad grounds.

Good luck and have your ignition lock replaced soon as possible. Worn ignition lock will not get any better and may soon leave you stuck looking for a tow to get it fixed. Thank you for using Fixya

Engine wont start

It sounds like the starter solenoid is bad which if I remember correctly my 1991 Cavalier had the solenoid on the starter.I suggest taking off the starter and having it tested.Most auto parts chains(Pep boys,Autozone)will test your starter for free.I this car is equiped with a seperate starter relay this may also be the problem
