We replaced the steering colomn in my 99 chevy Tahoe and now as soon as you turn the key and it starts, you let your hand off the key and it dies immediately. What could be wrong?

Chevy Tahoe sputters than dies


i would first try to replace the fuel filter.usually there filter accumalates debris in the gas tank especially if you you ru the tank close to empty.filter location needs to be traced from the tank toward the motor.you will see a cylinder inline with a strap.part usually runs around 20.00. also when you initally turn the key before start you will hear a hum for about 2 sec. this is the fuel pump pushing the fuel up to motor.so if you hear this pump is working.

Yes it sounds like a security system problem. Does the new column have pass key? You are leaving the key on until the security light stops flashing? The light is flashing for 10 minutes?

1992 chevy pu. 4 wheel drive electrical issue.


the ignition electrical switch (not the key ignition switch) on the bottom of the steering colomn is probably the issue........You can find it by looking under the dash while turning the key you will see a rod moving back and forth. At the bottom of the rod is the switch.
Hope this helps!

I had similar starting problems with my 99 Tahoe. It turned out to be the anti-theft device was malfunctioning and not recognizing the key so it would turn off the fuel pump and eventually the fuel pump went out too. Since having this replaced ($555.00 with parts and labor at the dealership) I have had no more problems at all with my truck and have actually braved taking it on a 6 hour road trip and had no problems with it leaving me stranded. Since that road trip, I have gone on several more and have full confidence that I will no longer have this be an issue.
