SOURCE: Ignition lock cylinder removal

Talking about pulling the air bag,removing the clock spring,
special tools for the lock plate,then it gets easy.

Disconnect the batt. for like 20 min to kill the air bag,remove the bag ,then the wheel,(with the puller you rented),the tool to remove the clip for the lock plate come next( also rented from Auto Zone or such like)
The tumbler is held in with a pin that unscrews ,then the cyl. just slides out.

it is possible but you will need to drill out the old lock cylinder. The lock cylinder needs to be in the run position in order for the retainer button to releases. If you don't have a key than you will either have to have one made by a lock smith or a dealer.

If you cannot get a key then you will have to drill out the lock cylinder until you are able to turn it to the run position.

What years of 1999 Chevy Cavalier are compatible with ignition cylinder. Looking for any compatible years or models??


1995 to 2001 Cavalier & Pontiac Sunfire ignition lock cylinders are the same. Be advised that your car has an anti theft system. If you plan on installing a used cylinder from another car, you will need to have the replacement cylinder "coded" to your original key OR have a key with the same resistor value as your original key, cut for the replacement cylinder [new or used] Without doing this, the car will not start.

Truck will not start due to security system


The security icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

I locked my keys in my chevy tahoe, so i thought I would try the key to another chevy truck of mine, it worked and unlocked the doors so I tried it in the ignition just to see if it would work to star


If you have opened the doors to obtain your locked up keys you do not need to use some other key to try and start the vehicle do you. The wrong key is not going to start the vehicle.

How do you change a key switch in a 2001 chevy impala, the factory keys wont turn in the switch


If your key is worn try getting a new one cut.
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.
If you are unable to operate the ignition cylinder with a new key then you will probably need to replace the cylinder and switch.Replacement of the switch involves reprogramming
The system may be programmed with or without a scan tool.
There is a way to get the cylinder out without replacing the switch but this procedure should be performed by a qualified GM technician as it involves removal of the switch and some precise drilling.
