The tumblers are Bad in the Cylinder Lock.. Its common for Chevy.. Esp if ya have a lot of keys hanging off the key chain.. It Speeds up the wear on the guts of the tumbler because of the weight of the keys constantly working the key mechanism.. Hope this Helps.. Thank you.. Shop242

2001 s10 will jump start. After it sits, I try to start it, it won't start, but the ignition keeps dinging after I turn it off and take the key out. I can jump start it and the dinging stops.


its sounds like a bad ignition switch-try to jiggle it and see if its stop after you have turned key off- also those dinging sounds are to warn you that you have left something on -usually headlights or maybe even your dome lights which would account for your battery dying

On my 06 equinox, I've turned off the car but my running lights stay on and the "ding ding" as if the key is in the ignition goes off. I've checked all switches and the car is off, the keys are...


Apparently the computer "thinks" that the key is in the ignition. This can be verified by scanning the body controller data while it is doing this. You will most likely end up having to replace your ignition switch to fix it. Also, if the ignition switch is replaced, the computer will have to be reprogrammed to accept the new ignition switch. Otherwise, you will have problems with your security system and the car will not start.

Need to reset the key fob


Sit in the driver's seat
Close all vehicle doors; ignition key should NOT be in the ignition, and ignition should be OFF.
Press and hold UNLOCK on your driver's door lock switch, insert and remove your ignition key TWICE, and insert the key in the ignition; this time LEAVE IT. DO NOT TURN THE KEY!!
LET GO OF THE DOOR SWITCH; listen for 3 dings after which, with the key still in the ignition, you will press and hold both LOCK and UNLOCK AT THE SAME TIME on your transmitter for 12 seconds. or until you hear 2 DINGS which indicate a newly programmed transmitter.

If you wish to use more the one transmitter (4 MAX), press and hold lock and unlock just as the first transmitter.

PULLING OUT THE IGNITION KEY ends this procedure :-) !

1998 Saab Bell will not stop dinging, even when key is removed.


the lights are most likely the third brake light on the decklid... small line of led brake lights small unit.. i would clean the ignition switch with some quick start and cycle the key in and out to clean up the contact on the bottom some times soda or coffe gets in there and makes the car think that the cars key is in the ignition

Ignition won't turn.


U WILL NEED TO TRY LUBING THE LOCK CYLINDER 1ST WITH POWDERED GRAPHITE LOCK CYLINDER LUBE FROM ANY HARDWARE STORE, IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT U WILL NEED THE LOCK REPLACED. NEVER USE ANY TYPE OF OIL IN A LOCK CYLINDER.

Ignition locked, it is stuck in first position A,


Hi my name is adam and it sounds like the ignition is stuck due to the position of the wheel. You need to turn the wheel so that the pressure is relieved from the locking mecognism. Then take the key out and try to turn the key again.
