Whn I try to start my 2003 MC Sonoma, the key won't turn in the ignition, the steering wheel won't turnlockedand unable to move the shift lever out of park?


Sounds as if the ignition cylinder has an internal problem. You may have a sticky wafer inside the cylinder. You can try using some WD 40 and inserting the straw inside the cylinder and giving it a good spray. You can also try gently rocking the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. With out the ignition cylinder turning, the gearshift will not come out of park nor will the steering wheel come unlocked. Hop this helps

I have a 1996 gmc Sonoma. Headlights will work sometimes.


Consider the dimmer switch on the steering wheel; the wires from it wouldn't affect the tail lights, but could possibly affect the headlights. Hopefully loose wires from the assy is the problem.. replacing the unit might be difficult. or expensive.

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.


The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

Headlights on 2001 yukon xl will turn off, then back on, when tilting steering wheel. One time, headlights turned off when clicking off the brights (the steering column again)


The tilt mechanism in your steering column is loose. This is a common problem but not an easy fix, you will need to disable and remove the air bag, remove the steering wheel and all of the parts in the steering couimn down to the base and tighten the screws. Best to Loctite them in so it doesnt happen again.
Do not attemt this if you are not a qualified tech, Goog Luck.
