1990 chevy suburban. The key was turned to auxillary and stuck

hopefully that does not have tilt steering which makes the job somewhat more difficult. the same thing happened with a van i owned. there are small arms inside the steering column that move with the key to move the ignition switch.
to confirm it is broken locate the ignition switch on the column. remove it then turn the key. if the piece that normally moves that switch doesn't... than it is broken.

first unhook the battery.

about the only way to get at it is to remove the steering wheel. there are more parts behind that that have to be removed. then you will get to what is basically and end cap. remove that and slide out the parts and install the new arm(s) mine was a 2 piece.

basically you just need to bolt it back up and reinstall the key cylinder and you are good to go. hook up the battery again and you should have a working vehicle.
the tilt springs can be held together with a c clamp. it is tricky but you will see as you attempt it.

There is some adjustment. But you may have something else going on. When the tilt gets old the pivot pins get loose and the holes get egg shaped. If this is what is going on then you might me wasting your time.

How do I replace the ignition switch in a 1990 K1500 chevy pick up

Underneath the dash, follow the steering column and you'll find a square longer-type switch with an electrical connector on one side and a rod coming out of the end of it going towards the dash. It's held on by 2 quarter inch (or smaller) bolts. Remove the connector, remove the two screws, and slide the switch out of the rod. Install reverse of removal.
