SOURCE: On a 2000 olds Bravada the key wont turn off all the way

you need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly, the swtch may be secured with what you call shear bolts which may have to be drilled out, only you can decide if you are capable of doin this, new bolts should be supplied with the new swith, when you retighten the bolts, the heads will shear off when they are tight enough, the aim of these are to prevent theives making a quick ignition change to steal your car

SOURCE: How do I replace the passenger side head light

you should be able to access the bulb from the inside of the engine compartment. if it is on the side with the battery you will likely have to remove the battery to gain access. do not touch the bulb with your fingers as that will shorten it's life.

SOURCE: how hard is it to replace fuel pump on 1996

i'm no mechcanic but i just bought a used 94 bravada that the previous owner replaced it. he lifted the rug, cut an opening above the fuel pump and replaced it without unloading fuel or dropping tank. put a old floor mat under the carpet with a homemade cover and placed the carpet back over it. would not have known if he didnt tell me. works.

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!!

Try spraying some PB Blastor directly on the key before inserting...also spray with the fine tube a little PB Blastor into the ignition switch...this is safe for electrical parts...wiggle and retry...Your local locksmith can replace the key switch for you...the air bag usually prohibits self repair...:( You can buy the PB Blastor at Walmart and auto stores...

You most likely have a problem with the car computer. It is programmed to control that as well as the rest of the vehicle's functions. Have the computer tested by a mechanic.

My 2000 bravada wont start.


you pulled the ignition switch and installed a different switch
that means that you have installed a different immobilizer system
try reprogramming the new key to your ECM and it will probably go

I just replaced the starter on my 2000 Bravada. No other problems before starter replacement. Can someone please tell me why, now, when I am hooking up the battery, the truck is trying to turn over...


Because the ignition switch wire (small purple wire) or connector is touching the hot post on the starter.So when you connect the battery it just like turning the ignition key to start the engine. Make sure all the wires on the starter are not touching each other.

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 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.
