The ignition switch(this is the electrical portion) is out of time. It needs to be removed, reindexed(notched teeth on top of switch-rotated a couple spots) and reinstalled. When it is installed correctly, the tell tale lights will not be on, you'll have accessory and the vehicle will start in the crank position. You don't want any lights on when the key is out of the ignition.

Sounds like it in the key switch. Try to jiggle the key back and fourth to see if it will stop it

My guess would be a bad connection at the harness for the cluster, or a problem with the printed circuit board inside the cluster.

When i turn off my vechile the key gets stuck in ignition and will not turn off all the way sometimes and battery light stays on what is my problem


You need a new ignition. The tumblers are off and sometimes this prevents the key from rotating. Lightening your keychain when it is in the ignition helps prevent this.

2000 gmc starter not turning when key is turned ....no sound at all... plenty of battery power??


Are all your connections on battery clean and tight and also on starter and does all other lights work? If they do then it could be the ignition switch, if you got another person, take a test light and hold it on the small post on starter while the other person turns key to start position, if it don't light test light its the ignition switch, if it does it could be starter.

2000 GMC Jimmy won't start


Hi: Have run into same type of problem, turned out to be a dead or very battery. Has nothing to do with the ignitin switch. With a low battery have also had trouble getting the key out of a 95 Jimmy. Boost unit to get running then discommect battery, if unit stall right away replace alternator, if stays running replace battery. If you get the unit runnimg and try to drive it as is you should find lacks power and wants to stall.

I have had the same problem with my 2000 jimmy. Disconnect the battery for approx 1 minute and then reconnect, this should reset the computer. It has worked for me every time. I was told it was a glitch with GMC.
