Question about 1983 Chevrolet El Camino
I get no response from turning key, which is free turning, to start the car. It does remain in lock when the key is removed, there is intact power to the radio etc, but it will not unlock Park position in the automatic transmission, Is possibly the key cylinder or switch(that they tell me is under the dashboard?)
Saw, It sounds like the accuator rod from the ignition lock cylinder to the ignition switch is broken or disconnected.
If you look near the base of the steering column you wll see the ignition switch mounted to the steering column. As you turn the key you should see the rod move up and down, if not, you will have to disassemble to figure out why.
Good luck, let me know what you find.
