2001 GMC Jimmy. 1st issue; At about 53-54mph it feels like I am running over grooved pavement warning strips similar to that approaching a toll booth, goes away at any other speed. 2nd issue; Key will not...

your Ign switch is inside your steering column clamshell, take the bottom screws out of the clamshell and bott. will drop off, pull tilt lever straight out and the switch is on right side it has 2 plastic retainers you squeeze to get it to slide out of holder and unplug the harness and reinstall the new one, this gets a dead spot in it and does what you are talking about w/key not turning off, and also on the one I changed kept getting trans. codes and other codes cause components wer'nt being powered up at right time,according to position of switch.

How do i remove an ignition in a gmc jimmy 2000 without a key?

Hello, Dan. First, disconnect the negative (-)/ground on the battery Dan are you mechanically inclined. If not then don't attempted this job.

You will need to remove all the plastic covers on the steering column. Remove the horn ring.--two screws under the steering wheel. Remove the horn ring and disconnect the horn plug. Remove the steering wheel nut. Use a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel.

Remove the turn signal switch that fit around the upper part of the steering column. Then remove the some of the parts that are associated with the steering wheel and/or column.

Now, look at the ignition switch flange, it a big chunk of aluminum. Now look for a large aluminum dowel pin 5/8" in diameter that is driven into the chuck of aluminum but it is parallel to the steering column.

This aluminum dowel pin will have to be drill out before you can get ignition housing off, If there is adjustable steering column lever, remove this also.

Now, once the dowel pin has been removed, looking for a **** in the ignition housing. Take chisel and insert into this ****, drive the chisel into the **** until the ignition housing is loose to be remove by sliding it up over the steering column.

If you buy a new ignition switch, on purchase the switch with keys. Don't buy the hole new ignition housing.. If you do it will get expensive.

In the ignition (old) housing drive out the ignition switch pins that keeps the ignition switch in the housing. Install the new ignition switch re-insert the ignition switch hold pins.

I am fairly sure that Carquest/ NAPA some other larger auto parts will have ignition housing bolt. If they try to sell you a replacement aluminum dowel pin don't buy it. It is almost impossible to install the aluminum dowel pin without the proper tools, so use a bolt to squeeze ignition housing together.

Before putting everything back together. Now, check the new ignition switch to make sure it works. I wish you lot of luck. GB...stewbison

My 1987 full size Jimmys steering column is loose at the pivot point for the tilt, Is there a way of tightening that or is it time to replace it?

Yes,takes about an hour to fix,no parts involved.Special tools tho. There are 4 torx head bolts that come loose,would put lock tite on them when tightened.Have to pull the wheel and ts switch,remove tilt pivot pins,lock cyl,ect. Kind of involved but any good shop knows how to do it.

89 old ciera cross ref.

Column shift tilt wheel:

Ciera '89, '90
Buick Century '89, '90
Chevrolet Celebrity '89, '90
Pontiac 6000 '89, '98

Column shift w/o tilt

Olds Ciera '89, '90
Buick Century '89, '90
Chevrolet Celebrity '89, '90
Pontiac 6000 '89, '90

Floor shift...same options. Tilt and/or no tilt is a matter of preference as the wiring harness is the same, so either will work. Floor shift is floor shift only,'89 and '90 Ciera, Century, Celebrity, 6000.

Hope this helped.

Headlights on 2001 yukon xl will turn off, then back on, when tilting steering wheel. One time, headlights turned off when clicking off the brights (the steering column again)

The tilt mechanism in your steering column is loose. This is a common problem but not an easy fix, you will need to disable and remove the air bag, remove the steering wheel and all of the parts in the steering couimn down to the base and tighten the screws. Best to Loctite them in so it doesnt happen again.
Do not attemt this if you are not a qualified tech, Goog Luck.

Wobbly tilt wheel

Remove horn pad . After removing the large nut SCRIBE A LINE ON THE CENTER SHAFT and the STEERING WHEEL, Using a steering wheel puller, remove steering wheel. Now comes the tricky part. Remove signal stalk ( just pull out a couple of inches ),and 4-way flasher knob. Disconnect multiple connector of signal switch. Remove 3 screws holing switch down. Gently pull upward on switch to expose lower steering bowl. The large bolts are LOOSE that secure it, so the reason for the wobble. Tighten bolts, and reverse procedure.
