You have to remove the stering colum covers and in the ingnition key drum on the side there is a little hole, press the inside pin and pull the key ccylinder out, you can buy on autozone or pep boys.

How do i disarm warning chime on 1998 GMC Sonoma

Worn out key cylinder or ignition switch. Cant tell when key is off. There is a wire which as you put in the key it makes contact as the the key pushes this metal contact up. You can unplug it. It should be a blue wire you should be able to see once you remove the covers of the colomn.

1995 gmc Sonoma.Replaced fuel pump for low pressure.Now we have fuel pressure but lost spark to engine. Truck was towed to work area.

check out the ignition module in the distributor if there is one. they are especially wonky and control both fuel pump and ignition spark at startup.

Truck won't start

Sounds like you have several problems.
If the engine will not crank, do you have power on the purple wire on the small starter terminal when the key switch is in the start position ?

1995 gmc sonoma has no power to ignition control module or coils there for has no spark

Since you said coils, I will assume you have a 4 cyl engine. The V6 models use a distributor.
The pink wire which powers the module as well as the injectors is from a 20amp fuse number 10. It is supposed to be hot in the On position.
If you have no power there with the key on, check the key switch.

I have a 1995 GMC Sonoma that will not start when turn ignition switch lights will come on etc but engine will not turn over battery is good etc but nothing happens

Make sure all the ends on your battery cables are clean and tight. I got a tow in because my car would not try to start even tried boosting to no avail. All my lights and radio was working but they said the cable was corroded and would not let the full power work. We replaced the battery cables and worked like new now.

'95 GMC Sonoma ran great until it just quit...stopped dead. No warning lights, smoke or odors. Driving along and just stopped running. Headlights bright. Turned key with lights on lights didnt dim out....

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Two things to look at. Starter and ignition coil. If one of this is faulty there will be no current to burn fuel. I strongly suggest that you replace it resolve the issue.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
