I once had a small piece of paper floating in the gas tank that would wrap itself around the fuel pick up tube and stop fuel flow. Stop it....paper floats again .... good to go until it happened again. Have a look in the fuel tank. It drove me nuts until I finally had a look.

Key will not turn in ignition


I have occasionally had the problem where the key won't turn. It usually happens when the steering wheel lock mechanism prevents wheel from turning enough to allow the key to turn. It sounds like a similar issue for you. Perhaps something is not aligned properly when they re-installed the wheel. I'd take it back to the shop that serviced the steering wheel and explain the problem.

1998 s-10 security light


If the security light is hot or flashing when the key is in the on position, most likely the ignition key tumbler housing has failed.

You can try resetting the pass code by turning the ignition switch to the on position (do not crank or start the engine). Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes. Turn the key to the off position, wait 5 seconds and turn the key to the on position again and leave it on for 10 more minutes. Cycle the key to the off position again for 5 seconds the back on for a final 10 minutes. Once the final 10 minutes is complete, turn to the off position again, wait 5 seconds and now turn the ignition on and to the start position. The pass code has now been reset and it should start. If the reset does not work you will have to change the ignition key tumbler housing that contains the key code resistor.
Good luck

When i turn the ignition key ocassionally the starter motor does not engage so i must turn it again,the car always starts but i am curious why this happens


Your stater is sticking in a certain position. It will more than likely get worse. If your car wont start you can tap it with a iron bar and it should then turn over, until you get a new one.

Today, after fueling up my car - I went to start the engine and the key wouldn't turn in the ignition, the steering wheel wouldn't move and I couldn't push the brake pedal down. After trying several times...


if you turned the steering wheel after shutting off the engine and the steering wheel caught the lock and tried to turn back it would hold pressure against the ignition lock cylinder. if it happens again try pulling the steering wheel hard one way or the other and turn the key at the same time.

As I got out of the car i grabbed the wheel and it moved left and clicked. Now I cant get the key to turn in ignition and wheel is locked. What do I do?


move the steering wheel while turning the key in the ignition and it should come unlocked. This happens sometimes, its just on a bind. Like i said just turn the steering wheel left and right the little bit that you can and the key will be able to turn.

Turning ignition key there is silence....battery is ok as lights, radio come on strong. I keep trying, turning the key and moving gear shift et...and maybe it finally connects and engin fires and starts...


When this happens and the key is in the Ignition position, do the dash lights, etc come on? Could be the ignition switch is bad, and this is and easy way to tell. If the ignition is on and when we go to START, nothing happens, I would replace the starter/solenoid next.
