You did not give the year of the truck, but this might help.
You may need to get an actual wiring diagram from a shop manual since that info is not usually in a DIY book.

SOURCE: where is the location of the bcm c1?

Depends on the year, I see your is 2008 but I do not know which year is where. So look on the pass side fuse panel first. Some are mounted behind the fuse panel. Some are mounted behind the radio and some are mounted up under the dash to the left of the radio.

Try adjusting the switch on the column. They have slots in them where the bolts go in so you can adjust them by sliding it up or down the column. Pull on the switch where the rod goes in and see if you get anything. Let me know what happens.

Strech it is a dash mounted I have five gallon fat bobs key switch in middle


The BLACK wire (that you say you know goes to the battery), would be the HOT lead, shown as a TAN wire in the diagram.
Per the diagram, it actually connects to lug #1 on the STARTER RELAY.

As far as the RED and BLUE wires, you need to figure which is for the lights, and which is for the ignition.
My GUESS is RED's the ignition, and BLUE is the lights.

If your switch is a THREE position (ACC, OFF, IGN), it might not matter, as these switches are set up to run the lights whenever the ignition is on.

The older FOUR position switches (ACC, OFF, IGN, LIGHTS) are so you can manually select if you want to run the headlight or not, and would also have a fourth wire coming off the switch.

My 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Classic keeps blowing the Ign sw-batt1 (40A) Maxi Fuse What do I do?


Is the 4th digit of your vehicle's VIN an "N"? If it is an "N", it looks like the IGN SW BATT 1 (fuse#5) powers up the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), and instrument panel cluster (IPC). If your PCM ACC fuse G (10 amp) and IPC/BFC ACC fuse J (10 amp) in the left driver side fuse block in the dash are not blown, then you have a short circuit to ground in the wire between the IGN SW BATT 1 fuse in the underhood fuse block, and the ignition switch in the steering column. This would be a thick red wire. A short circuit to ground means that this wire somewhere has rubbed through and is touching metal. Find the short, repair the wire, and you'll stop replacing that expensive 40 amp fuse :)
Unless... someone has tapped into the wire (amplifier or stereo?) and is pulling way too much current through the wire, in which case the fuse would be blowing out. The correction for a blown fuse is NEVER to install a bigger fuse. You risk overheating the circuit and possible fire. Always find the cause of the short/overcurrent.

Color code


Most newer vehicles (yours included) have a lot more contacts than just the three you are talking about. I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan and it has 13 different wires running to the ignition switch. The point here is that you will have to combine several wires on one contact which may or may not do the same things the original switch does which may lead to all sorts of strange problems with the engine, transmission and all the other accessories on the vehicle. The other problem is since you will have more things running on one contact, your new switch may be overloaded and prematurely fail or even start a fire since some of the main feeder wires to the ignition switch may not be fused small enough to prevent overheating the switch. A factory/OEM switch may be more expensive but in the long run will save way more problems than the cheaper switch will. To specifically answer your question, most over-the-counter vehicle service manuals available at any auto parts store or in some libraries have generic wiring diagrams that should show you which wire would go where.

Put a new motor in my 1990gmc truck 1990year.It ws a 10 amp fuse for the ignition, what is wrong/blo


Hello! Just because you changed an engine does not mean that something unrelated hasn't occurred... In the fuse box is the 10A fuse in the far left row...Third fuse down?....If it is that is the ECM ignition Fuse...Tracing from the ignition switch it is a Pink wire that goes to a 3A in-line fuse and changes color to Purple/White then on to the ECM...When the fuse blows is there battery on the Pink wire?...If not...Pull the blown fuse...Disconnect the main Battery terminal...Set multimeter to the X 10 scale...Place one lead on each side of the pulled fuse socket and the other lead to bare metal ground...Does either side read resistance to ground?...If it does turn the ignition key from off...To ACC,.. to start and finally hold on run...Does the ground go away in any of those positions? if it does I would suspect one of the ignition switch wires is touching ground...Hard to find...But if you alligator clip the meter in place and wiggle the ignition wires you may see it come and go...Indicating where you are moving the harness the bare wire is pinched to ground...
However...If the movement of the key does not produce a change...Remove the fuse box...Flip it over... identify the wire on the fuse that blows and trace it with meter in-place wiggling as you move through the harness until you find the bare spot touching ground...

An easier softer way is to identify the color of the wire that connects to the ECM IGN FUSE...It will be Red, or Purple/White and go to the ignition switch...Cut it on both ends and run a wire of the same gauge from point to point...Guru...Saailer

HOW DO I CHANGE THE IGNITION SWITCH IN MY 86 SUBURBAN?


Are you asking about the key cylinder or the actual ign switch? They are both in the steering column. The key cylinder needs special tools to change it, but it can be done at home. The ign switch can be accessed by dropping the steering column down. It's on the top of the column and has about 10 heavy wires going into it. Remove the 2 5/16 head screws holding it, and then you can unplug the wiring should be 2 connectors side by side. When you put the new switch in you will have to adjust it by leaving the 2 screws loose then turn your key to acc, slide the switch forward, then tighten the bolts. A haynes manual might explain this better. You can get those from any auto parts place. As for the key cylinder you have to take the column completly apart. It requires a special tool. It would be better explained in the haynes manual. Good luck

Tim,
There a 2 red battery feed wires going into the ignition switch. When you turn the switch to start, battery voltage goes out on the heavy gage purple or yellow wire to the clutch switch or park/neutral switch ( manual or automatic) then to the starter solenoid.
Hope this helps, let me know.
