Question about GMC Cars & Trucks
You are better off taking it out from the inside of the steering column after removing the steering wheel. When the cylinder is rotated it moves a shaft that travels down the inside of the steering column that activates the ignition. There are on wires attached to the cylinder that will give you ignition. If you must drill it out you will need at least a 1/2 ins to 3/4 ins drill and that will butcher it.

SOURCE: 2007 gmc sierra 2500 IAT sensor
Well, the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor is located on the air intake duct between the filter and the throttle body (Assuming you have the 6L motor). The wires are easily visible at the plug that connects the sensor to the wiring harness. That's the easiest place to access them.

I had similar problem with my 97 sierra... I only lost 1 light, then brake lights stayed on all the time... turns out the "t" connector for the trailer harness under rear bumper was rotted inside...unplugged the 2 parts of the harness and pluged them into each other with out the "T" harness.... everything works great... Hope it helps ya

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!
