Question about GMC C1500

1 Answer

Hello, thank you for helping. I have a 1990 Chevy truck C1500 with a broken steering column that is a tilt, and I have a floor shift. I found a 1990 Chevy truck C1500 tilt steering column from a standard. Can I use this as a complete replacement? I just do not hook up the standard part? Robert. (479)226-1927 Thank you again.

If you have a floor shift and the replacement has a colum shift..you can use the colum and remove the pin that holds the shift arm on..it comes out with a pin remover .. just tap it down and out..the arm slides out..then use as normal..

in order to fix this you will need a steering wheel puller and a press I can't remember the name of it but once you get the wheel off you have to press the ring and then get the lock off and then it is pretty simple you can do it with a flat bar and some sockets bot the proper tools are cheap enough that they are always handy

It may be the 'actuator'. It is a rod that connects the lock cylinder to the ignition switch on the tilt wheel units. It is made of aluminum and often breaks as things become worn.

I disassemled the tilt steering wheel to my 1990 Chevy Suburban because the tilt was loose. The steering wheel moved side to side at the tilt location which was right above the gear shift lever bowl. I...


You will have to remove the lock plate and the turn signal plastic assembly, from inside the column housing, in order to access and tighten up the three hex screws that have come loose, allowing the tilt column to move side to side. I have done this numerous times, in the mid 90's, when the 80's GM tilt columns started to come loose with age. The hardest part is getting that lock plate off, and replacing it, if you don't have a lock plate puller, so make sure you have one or else get one, as it will save you lots of time and fustration. Good luck.

89 old ciera cross ref.


Column shift tilt wheel:

Ciera '89, '90
Buick Century '89, '90
Chevrolet Celebrity '89, '90
Pontiac 6000 '89, '98

Column shift w/o tilt

Olds Ciera '89, '90
Buick Century '89, '90
Chevrolet Celebrity '89, '90
Pontiac 6000 '89, '90

Floor shift...same options. Tilt and/or no tilt is a matter of preference as the wiring harness is the same, so either will work. Floor shift is floor shift only,'89 and '90 Ciera, Century, Celebrity, 6000.

Hope this helped.

1990 chevy gladiator van steering column has came loose. It is floppy, how and what is the best way to correct this.


I will assume you really have a G10-20-30 van.(half/ 3/4 or 1 ton full size van)
The fifth digit of your vin should be a G.
Not the 2wheel drive pickup indicated.
That being said, your Gadiator is an aftermarket conversion van with a loose column.
This would have to be a loose tilt bowl on the steering column.
After removing the steering wheel and lock plate, you will find four inverted torx bolts that hold the tilt bowl to the column. Two will be backed way out and loose.Remove these bolts and appy loc tite to the bolt threads, then reassemble.

1990 chevy suburban. The key was turned to auxillary and stuck


hopefully that does not have tilt steering which makes the job somewhat more difficult. the same thing happened with a van i owned. there are small arms inside the steering column that move with the key to move the ignition switch.
to confirm it is broken locate the ignition switch on the column. remove it then turn the key. if the piece that normally moves that switch doesn't... than it is broken.

first unhook the battery.

about the only way to get at it is to remove the steering wheel. there are more parts behind that that have to be removed. then you will get to what is basically and end cap. remove that and slide out the parts and install the new arm(s) mine was a 2 piece.

basically you just need to bolt it back up and reinstall the key cylinder and you are good to go. hook up the battery again and you should have a working vehicle.
the tilt springs can be held together with a c clamp. it is tricky but you will see as you attempt it.

Where is the neutral safety switch no a chevy c1500 transmission


Generally on GMs, if it's a column shift, it's down low on the steering column under the dash, and if it is a floor shift, it is at the base of the shifter, under the shifter housing. Look for purple wires or a purple wire and a yellow wire. I don't know what year your truck is. Hope this helps!

Yes, it will fit.Years that fit are 89 to 94.Appearance may be different it steering wheel between a chev or gmc,but wiring should be a exact fit.Other differences in columns are column shift(auto)w/tilt or w/out tilt wheel or floor shift(standard)w/tilt or w/out.
