1992 Chevy s10 wont shut off

Hi, I have a 1992 Chevy s10 truck and the problem is that it wont shut off. The key locks up and it wont turn to the off position. Before it does this while I am driving the brake light comes on and the service vehicle light, the speedomitor stops working as well. The only way to shut it off is to stall it then bang on the steering column, and try to keep jiggling the key. I also had a new key made and it worked a few times then the problem started up again. The locking mechanism that you push to turn it off by the key freezes as well, and the steering wheel. Is there any way to fix this?

the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!

Hello, i broke the emergency light switch off on my 1996 chevy s10 and now the emergency lights will not turn off. how do i fix the switch?

This is not a real easy task. You have to remove the steering wheel and Airbag (if you have one). The steering wheel lock ring (locks steering wheel when key is removed) Then there are three screws that hold the turn/emg flasher indicator switch in place. You will also have to lower the steering column down from the dash to get the wires and plug though. Set aside a few hours if this is your first time. Good Luck

I cannot get ignition key out of lock, will not turn off. 92 chevy p.u. 2500

Check to see if there is an ignition lock on the unit you might have to push the release, my 1992 2500 stick shift has one and when I first bought it i didn't know about it, so give that a try the unit might not be turning back all the way and in turn will not let your key go.
