There may be security screws on the ignition switch. Walmart and Murrays, Autozone, etc. sell the socket that fits the screw. Its one of those senseless ideas to prevent theft. Either a thief is going to buy the same security socket you are or the thief will use a screwdriver to punch the lock.

I have a 97 chevy astro. I just hadto replace the ignition lock cylinder in it. The van was starting fine before changing it. After it was changed the van will crank bit not turn over.


It is your VATS anti theft system that is giving you fits. You have two choices, get a locksmith to change the pins in your new lock cylinder to your old key and use the original key with the proper chip for your VATS system, or get a hold of a shop that installs remote start systems and have them bypass the VATS system

Need to change the ignition switch


Remove panel under steering wheel. Put key in cylinder and turn back to accessory position. Looking under lower part of steering column locate a small pin under the key cylinder. While depressing the pin turn the key backwards and pull the entire cylinder with key out of column. Good luck.

Lock cylinder replacement 00 safari van


Before you replace the cylinder, you might want to try cleaning the cylinder first, its fairly easy and quick.
Use some WD-40 or equivalent and place the spray tube into the tumbler opening were the key would normally go. Make sure you have a rag or something to catch the excess that runs out. Try to flush it out as much as possible.
Then using a can of compressed air, blow the cylinder out, you may need to repeat as necessary. The process should clean debris that is sticking the tumbler.
Give it a try, it should save you some time and money.
Let me know.
Regards,

Change ignition cylinder? (lock?)


the new cylinder's key has a different code, so the anti-theft module has to reset to accept that code, with the old cylinder u could program extra keys as long as u had one key that worked, but since that is not the case with a new lock cylinder I think u are stuck with taking it to the dealer, any GM dealer can do this job, call around and try to get a lower estimate. Before having it towed try this work around I found on a car thread on this issue:

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key. Not sure this will work but it is worth a try.
