The little tab inside the ignition is stuck in, if you were to squirt a little WD-40 in the ignition slot then insert the key a couple twenty times it will allow it to free up a little, if your keys are real heavy or key is badly worn it might be whats causing this, one other possibility is the headlight switch is going bad

You need to replace the handle itself. The inside of the handle where the metal cable fitting attaches causes too much strain on the plastic and the molded groove breaks. Ford has the same problem. I don't know why these car man. dont just go back to all metal exterior handles. If you have time you can probably fix it with epoxy and washers, but the fastest way is to get one aftermarket or from a junkyard. Hope this answers your question.
Please remember to rate this fix.

Hi. Is it a key or separate remote based alarm.if it is key based then there may be reset info in the owners hand book. Some cars are reset using the drivers door key barrel, turning left and right to simulate a number series on a pass card. If separate remote, I would try new batteries. Good luck

2005 chevy express 3500 door light and radio stay on when you turn van off take the key out and open the door. how to fix


This Van has a system in it called delayed exit, this means the radio and other accessories stay on for a time as long as none of the doors are opened, when the door is opened the module senses that switch in the door is activated and shuts everything off. The easy way to test this is open the passenger door, if all shuts off you found the problem, the driver door switch is defective. the switch is attached to the door lock inside the door.

Constant beeping when opening door to exit van


Good news. After letting the van sit for a few hours, when I went to get in it again, I opened the van with the key (ie. not the remote fob) and there was no beeping. I don't know if checking all the fuses (I fulled and checked each one), or disconnecting the battery, using the key, or just letting it sit did the trick, but it is now fixed.

Disconnect your battery for a few minutes. This should reset the engine computer and let you get going again.
