Your ignition switch is probably locked up. I would take the steering wheel assembly apart to try to get the ignition switch out. Mike. Rate 100% and respond back please.

1998 oldsmobile bravada no start battery light on


The Battery light will be on since the engine is not running. The Light goes out when the Alternator is turning to produce the power required to run the electrical components for the vehicle.
I would start with making sure you have a Good Ground for the Vehicle. It sounds like you have either a Fuel Delivery Issue or Ignition System Issue.
Fire = Oxygen, Fuel, Spark. Take away any of these 3 and it will not run.

My 2000 bravada won't start


there could be a problem with the starter or the ignition system. if the motor does nothing when you turn the key but your headlights dim then you might try checking the starter. If the lights dont dim at all then an electrical check of your ignition system and relays would be a good place to start.

My 1998 Olds Bravada has the key stuck in the ignition. I paid to have a new ignition key cylinder put in, but the new one does the same thing. The key will start the car etc. but won't come out of...


I know in the newer versions of the Bravada, Trailblazers, Envoys, the ignition switch itself is always the culprit. Not the switch the key goes in, but it's located under the steering wheel column. I know how to replace the newer ones but not yours. That's the first place I'd look.

2000 Olds Bravada Key operates all electrics but will not turn ignition Could key be faulty


ignition switch has a anti-theft type lockout in the electronic switch inside steering column - have also had mine do this due to bad connection at the battery - remove both battery bolts and clean terminal and make sure you have a good connection - have also had my starter go out and does same thing - all lights and electronics but no start - had all 3 of these on my bravada in one week!!

2000 Olds Bravada ignition


Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.

If all the other gauges are working, then it is definately the sending unit. Mine is out at the moment and has been all summer. Pain in the **** to fix so haven't yet. Have to know however cause the fuel pump went out. Gonna kill 2 birds with 1 stone. We have just been using the digital reader for fuel used to know how much gas is in it. The gas gauge will bounce between half and full but never go below half.

Electrical / Lighting Systems


If the vehicle will not shift into park, the key will not come out. Problem in the linkage to the transmission first and then check for codes to indicate which system for the check engine light.
