Did you put the original key barrel cover over the new ignition as it is paired to you key only. if not then you will need to pair this part with you key, depending on where you are it will need the car pass etc to do this so would just be better if you can swap the ignition cover over its the part that has the wires on it.

Lost my keys so I replace my 97 trans am steering column but know won't start all lights turn on but motor won't turn starter is good


Go back through your work and recheck all connections. If there is no immobiliser or key chip then it has to be something you've done. Or not done. Is the replacement column a true swap? My guess is there is one power wire not connected. Check the small starter wire with tester to see if power goes that far. Check chassis ground cables etc.

Why won't my truck start?


Are you pulling the arm all the way back up. If not, the ignition is still on and you could be draining the battery. also check the alternator, they can short out on the inside. The solenoid is on the right fender well, do you have the single wire on the correct post

Brothers truck a 1987 ford f150, the horn and cruise were not functioning and key was not smooth turning from lock to start. Replaced the key ignition, also had removed steering wheel and blinker assembly...


You should replace all the wires that are in that steering column. Use OEM wire harnesses. There is a clock spring wire in that column that is bad, The shift indicator is a clip on a piece of string that moves when the column turns with the shifter.

Why would turning the steering wheel while cranking engine gets my car to start?


The ignition switch in the column most likely has a break in it. So when you move the steering wheel, it moves the wire so it completes the connection when you turn the key. Have the ignition switch replaced.

1997 gmc sierra 3500 won't start


When you turn the ignition to start, do you hear the starter turning and the solenoid engaging the flywheel ? test your starter by jumping it and see if the engine turns over. If this works, then you might consider in checking fuel pressure. Do you have any codes in your ECM ?

My car won't start and I changed the battery


Without knowing what it is doing exactly I would say if it does nothing when you turn the key then you are probably looking at an ignition switch problem. If it cranks but doesn't start it will probably be a battery problem. Since you changed the battery thinking that might fix it I'm leaning towards the ignition. The thing you are looking for is attached to the bottom of your steering column and has a bunch of wires running to it. Simple to replace just detach the wire harness and unscrew reverse for install. The cost of box may be what gets you. I don't know what 1 for your vehicle would run so it may be reasonable enough. Hope I could help.

Engine turns over but will not start


Hi there yep the switches are basically in the same location.Try the next time this happens to bump on the steering wheel while cranking or pushing in on the steering wheel towards the windshield if it starts right up you'll know for sure that its the switch or its out of ajustment.

CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START


I had this problem with my 97 Jimmy. It is your ignition switch. The switch that touches the tumbler gets wore down. You'll have to tear the steering column apart to get to it and you will need a really small torx driver (not sure what size). Good Luck.
