Good luck ! Anti-theft system won't let the car start . You need a key that has transponder embedded in the head of the key ! Emits a code to the VTD Controller Module . Plus the body control modules that control vehicle systems won't work either . These vehicles are made so as not to be hot wired . Breaking the lock cylinder you just cost yourself extra money . Your going to have to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .
The body control system consists of the following three modules:
• The dash integration module (DIM), located behind the instrument panel, above the right dash sound insulator.
• The instrument panel module (IPM), located behind the instrument panel, above the left dash sound insulator .
• The rear integration module (RIM), located at the left hand rear of the passenger compartment, behind the seat back.

Wiring diagram for the ignition switch on a 2000 chevy s10 ?

Unfortunately, you will not be able to do that. The key and tumbler are an intricate part of the vehicles "anti-theft system. If the ignition switch or tumbler is broken it will have to be replaced and the theft code relearned. When the key is turned in the tumbler, the switch reads the key code and sends the code to the BCM. The BCM verifies the code is correct and sends a start message to the ECM and allows the engine to start. With out that code verification, the engine will not start.

Try the Salvage yard, you can get then around $45.00 each if you pull the parts your self. Call around though, different Salvage Yards have different price and will always try to beat the price of another Salvage yard. They pull parts for you too if you don't fell like getting your hands dirty twice. Good luck.

Pontiac bonneville 2000 key will not turn past 1st position. 1st position turns on the electrical features, but will not turn to the acc or to start. Wheel is not locked. Had to push the car to a parking...

I had this problem with my bonne as well. One day in a corner store parking lot I could not turn the key at all. My father is an mechanic and I had him come over to help me. He put oil on the key and beat, easily, the key with a shoe. Once the key was moving again he moved the key to all positions for two minuites. Inside the key hole are little pieces that fall around the key. Once all the tumblers fall the car accepts the key and off you go. His explination was the the tumblers were just stuck and needed some love. Havent had a problem since.
