Ignition switch won't release key when it is put in park. But when I removed switch and key tumbler, the key tumbler/cylinder releases key. Why won't the key release when it is in park?

Most newer models have a safety feature called
shift interlock. This prevents the key from being turned back
to the lock position if you forget to place the gear selector in park.
Depending on the model,
If it uses a cable, it may be sticking or needs adjusting.
If it uses an electrical solenoid. may be blown fuse or park switch.
Tap, shake, and pull up on the shifter and make sure it's in park.

The car will turn over but won`t start but if I turn the key on and jump the starter it starts

Sounds like the ignition switch has gone kaput. The ignition switch come in two pieces, an electrical switch and a mechanical switch.

The switch electrical portion can be replaced separatly from the mechanical portion (tumbler that the key engages). It is not a real difficult repair but requires some mechanical knowlege of how the column is assembled.

This can be verified with electrical test equipment prior to buying a new electrical switch.

How to replace ignition switch on 1997 gmc p/u 1/2 ton

To remove the switch take the plastic shroud off of the column.Then take the two bolts out that support the steering column to the dash be sure to support the column.Make sure to put the switch in the lock position.If the ignition lock cylinder is out pull the switch rod up until it stops and then go down 1 click.Take the actuating rod out of the switch take the 2 screws that hold the switch in place and remove the switch.Now if its the lock cylinder that's a little more work.First remove the steering wheel then remove the turn signal switch but it doesn't have to be taken out all the way pull it towards yourself enough to clear the shaft.Turn the cylinder to run if necessary take the key out ,if it has a buzzer remove the switch assembly and then remove the retaining screw that holds the cylinder in place and remove the cylinder.Be very careful not to drop the retaining screw if it falls in the column you would have to take the column apart to get it back.To put it back in Turn the key to the stop while holding the cylinder lock in your hand.Push the lock all the way in and install the retaining screw.Reinstall the buzzer switch if it had one and then the turn signal switch and then the steering wheel.Dont let it scare you it may sound like alot but its just alot of instructions.Just take your time and its pretty simple.

Ignition Switch grey_line.gif Inspect | Test | Replace The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.
On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.


The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.
