Re: i lost my key to start my car
You may be faced with an incorrect key registered to the VATS system.(anti-theft).Your key contains an ohmic chip which must have ohmic resistance that correllates to the VATS module. Your new ignition and key does not jive with the key the VATS is programmed to see, hence no start. Is the VATS module available in the salvage vehicle you obtained the ignition from? Swapping that module would solve the problem otherwise you are faced with reprogramming the new key. There are ways to bypass VATS but it is a fairly sophisticated method but one might find out more by surfing the web concerning VATS bypasses but I have never tried this.good luck

Had the same problem and the motor is pricey. We went to a junk yard and found the same car and bought the door. We took it to a local small mechanic and he took the one and replaced it to ours. Never had another problem with the window, If you can find the same card in a junk yard it would be the cheapest way. hope that helps.
In my 2000 Bravada I went to the Olds/Gm dealer and bought it for $100. I went to junk yard after junk yard to find it but found out that it is very common for that bar to be rusted through. I even had to jack up my transmission just to get it in the correct way. I even went to the local Walmart and bought some undercoating kinda like rino lining. Took a full day to get it sprayed and really covered. The next day I was able to put it in. It is not easy to do but it can be done.
i have the 2.7 as well. mine is in an intrepid. Car was running perfectly fine when i went into bestbuy and when i came out 5 min later i tried to start the car and it would just crank n crank. no start though. eventually it started after lots of cranking. after a couple of times of doing this in order to start the car i would get nothing from the startrer. everything had power and everything electrical worked. found out that if i went under the car and hit the starter with a hammer a couple of times it would finally crank again. but i had to do this every time i shut the car off and wanted to start it again. i loive in WI and its wintyer right now so it really sucked to do this. took it to my buds shop and pulled the starter out and dissected it and found that the (i believe they are "brushes") were ground down to next to nothing, the positive ones, do to constant cranking. was going to get a starter from junk yard for 20 befor i knew what the problem was. did some calling around and found brand new brushes for $20.00. i just got those and installed them and had a good as new starter again. lots of dust to clean out of the housing though. brake fluid and air hose works wonders for that problem. but from best buy on the car would not start without starting fluid if it was at running temp. still yet to solve that one. replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, plugs, COP's and checked the rest of the sensors. still cant figure this out. anyone have advice let me know what i can check. fuel pump kicks in wen the key turns as well...
yes if u buy ignition switch from the junk yard make sure they have it plug or u need to use the right key from the right ignition.. u cant use your own key sir u need the original key of the ignition switch where u took the parts.god bless
the fact that after you changed the part from the junk yard it blew warm air indicates that the heater core is not the problem
could be the heater control is not fully opening or the junk yard replacement part is faulty
the circuit board on the back of the cluster often become loose. you can fix this by either resoldering the connections of getting another cluster if not new then a junk yard one. when your cluster stops working can you push on it and make it work again or smack the dash. if so resolder the board or have a junk yard one. i myself went to a junkyard and got one i had to beat up my dash to make it start working again.
