Maybe the steering wheel lock causing this problem, try rocking the wheel left to right and back the other way, if that doesn't work the lock cylinder is defective and must be replaced.

Wiring diagram for the ignition switch on a 2000 chevy s10 ?


Unfortunately, you will not be able to do that. The key and tumbler are an intricate part of the vehicles "anti-theft system. If the ignition switch or tumbler is broken it will have to be replaced and the theft code relearned. When the key is turned in the tumbler, the switch reads the key code and sends the code to the BCM. The BCM verifies the code is correct and sends a start message to the ECM and allows the engine to start. With out that code verification, the engine will not start.

No power to anything


sounds to me the rod from key switch to starter/ign switch is not where it should be. it probably slipped out when you had the key switch out. 23075457-awhy2tj3hoeu5futbuxdq4rw-3-0.png

You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

1991 S10 Ignition Lock Cylinder will not turn with key. Had new key made. Still, the ignition switch will not turn. It is on a 1991 Chevy S-10.


Hi,
This may or may not help. Is key hanging up in cylinder? If so, spray some wd 40 or graphite into the switch. Also, if steering wheel is turned fully in either direction, then your steering wheel lock may be preventing you from truning key. Try shaking the wheel while turning the key. Lastly your ignition switch may be shot.

1996 Chevy Cav. When i put key in to ignition,


Hi Jamie,
As you turn the key, **** the steering wheel hard side-to-side. The anti-theft interlock between the ignition switch and the steering is just jammed. Happens to all cars from time-to-time, and that's the fix.
