Lock key in ignition


The key itself or the ignition switch may be worn & either need replacement. Try w a backup key first to see if both keys are causing the same problem. If all keys cause the same problem then the switch is NG. Call in a tech for replacement.

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 also.one 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 fixya.com!

Can my key be reprogrammed in the ignition


The electronic key which you have only need to programme once, then it will work till get faulty not necessary to re programme there are only one way to re programme, it's only can do with new electronic ignition switch replacement so if you replace new ignition switch insert your key in it and it will take few minute for programme it take all the programme automatically then you can turn the key and start the car,
If you don't have replace the ignition switch but key is not working it's faulty either key or electronic ignition switch, if you have any other additional key if the car start with that key it's very clear it's faulty your key which is not working give me more details do you have the other key and only not working one key like that, however first replace the battery for your key and try if not work put a comment i will give you more details,

When you turn the key and start the car it will start but when you release the key the car quits running


This is caused by a defective ignition start switch, this is the electrical switch that powers up the electrical system when u turn the key, replace that switch. The switch is on the back side of the ignition key cylinder, see picture below, cost is about $20.00 for the switch, easy to replace, just take the plastic covers off the steering column

Remove/replace starter sloenoid


your Ignition Switch is bad here is how to replace it
The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

How do you change a key switch in a 2001 chevy impala, the factory keys wont turn in the switch


If your key is worn try getting a new one cut.
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.
If you are unable to operate the ignition cylinder with a new key then you will probably need to replace the cylinder and switch.Replacement of the switch involves reprogramming
The system may be programmed with or without a scan tool.
There is a way to get the cylinder out without replacing the switch but this procedure should be performed by a qualified GM technician as it involves removal of the switch and some precise drilling.
