Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
My 2000 jimmy's key froze in the on postion, keeping the starter engaged, I then put the vehicle in reverse to save my starter from burning up, undid the coil and battery. I got the key cyl. part, put it in, and the inside (housing) still will not allow me to turn it into the off position. Took the new key cyl. out. I inserted an 11m box end (wrench combo) into the area and tried to lightly force it into the off position. what else can I do?
This was happening to my Jimmy as well and I looked it up on the internet, here's what i found: one person said to turn the key on, but not start the car, you know like where the radio comes on and all that, and then put the car in reverse. Put it back in park and then turn off the car and they keys should go all the way back and out. My ignition's only froze once after having read this and when i tried it, it worked! lol ususally i would have to sit there for at least 30 seconds and i would hear a little click and then the keys would come out. Anyway, i hope this works for you too!
