Ignition coil getting no power steering wheel not locking turns over no start

The power to the coil via relay is activated by the ignition switch which doesn't lock the the steering column. That could be the source of all these problems. Also check the fuses.

My 2001 chevy silverado's low beams don't work. I

The wiring for the low beams would run not to the ignition, but to the dimmer switch. I don't know what color they are, but sounds like you are at the source of the problem, if the low beams quit when the column is let down. Pull the trim pieces off the steering column and examine the wires going to the dimmer switch. You may see some wiring insulation scraped off. It could be a bad dimmer switch, but check the wiring first.
Good luck.

My car stalled. I saw that my 25 amp engine fuse was blown. i replaced it and everytime i turn the ignition it will blow my fuse again.does anyone have a suggestion?

Something major is damaged. I suggest putting a circuit breaker in place, for diagnostics, then follow wiring with an inductive Amp meter to locate the problem area.

I HAVE A 2001 F250 V10, that will not start sometimes. When I turn the key, the engine turns over, but it acts like it is not getting any fuel. If you crank the steer wheel one way or the other it will...

If there is a short that makes any difference, it would have to be interfering with the current to the ignition. You an easily tell with a test light at the ignition coil. But I doubt it. The ignition leaves the column right away, and anything that would cause problems you would think would blow a fuse. If it is no fuel, then it would start on starting fluid spray. It there is no spark, you could see that with an inductive timing light or spare spark plug (don't hold a plug wire by hand or allow the arc to jump too far, by inserting a spare spark plug on the wire you pull off.)

Is the motor turning over but not firing? Have you checked for fuel pressure and also for spark? If you need more info, let me know.

Ignition lock cylinder keeps blowing

I don't think the key and tumbler is your problem at all. The switch is down on your steering column. It's either loose and sliding around when the rod pulls, or it's wrecked. They can cause all kinds of problems. Just drop your steering column and take a look.

Tilt steering doesnt work blows fuses

The wire that supplies a live to your radio, runs from ignition down the steering column. You probably have a chafed wire along that loom, as you tilt the steering, the wire grounds so the accessories fuse/radio fuse blows. Remove the panel under the steering column and/or the shroud around the column and examine the wiring.
