How do I change the ignition cylinder on a 97 Chevy c1500 if can't turn key to on/run.


You need to remove the steering wheel , turn signal control and in the steering column you will find a pin that holds the tumblers in place for the key switch. You can remove the pin and then remove the key tumbler and replace it. Go to You Tube and they have videos on just what you need to do to remove the steering wheel and etc. Hope this helps.

I start the car and the starter stay ingage I turn the ign switch off then try to start and the same thing happened few times until it start normal do you think its the starter / starter realy or ign


I would suspect that the solenoid contacts need replacing as they may be burning together. Pull the starter and have an accredited auto electrician bench test it.

Installing an ignition switch for a chevy malibu


Hello. You can view a free chilton's repair manual at google.com under ebooks. Or go to autozone.com and register for free.
There is a pin sized hole that will need to be pushed in and then you will need to turn and pull the ignition.

If you are replacing this due to the anti-theft light coming on and you having to wait 10 minutes with key in on position to reset computer and theft light, then forget it becuase it won't help. It is a bad passlock system that everyone is waiting on a recall for
