Before you change the switch try any spare keys you might have and wiggle the steering while trying to turn the key

Start key locked up


If the ignition hasn't been changed before. You can go to a dealer with the VIN# and have a key made. This doesn't guaranty anything as the tumblers wear down, like the key does. Next step would be a locksmith.

Wiring diagram for the ignition switch on a 2000 chevy s10 ?


Unfortunately, you will not be able to do that. The key and tumbler are an intricate part of the vehicles "anti-theft system. If the ignition switch or tumbler is broken it will have to be replaced and the theft code relearned. When the key is turned in the tumbler, the switch reads the key code and sends the code to the BCM. The BCM verifies the code is correct and sends a start message to the ECM and allows the engine to start. With out that code verification, the engine will not start.

2000 dodge caravan key will not turn can not start car steering wheel is locked


The tumblers in the lock cylinder are stuck and this prevents the key from turning. Spray some lubricant into the cylinder, insert the key in and out numerous times and also hit the end of the key with a rubber hammer while it is in the cylinder and this will help to release the tumblers.

Is there an easy online guide to changing out the ignition tumbler in a 1992 dodge caravan?


Hi,
First remove the plastic 2 piece shroud around steering column so as to gain access to the housing the tumbler sits in. Find three Phillips screws to remove in holes in the lower piece.
Turn the ignition key to the Run position. Insert a small tip screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the housing to push the spring-loaded tab which will free the tumbler so you can simply pull the tumbler out with the key.
Installation is the reverse. Be sure tumbler with key inserted is set to the Run position.
Depress spring-loaded tab, insert tumbler into housing hole with tab down. All the way in,
Turn key to the Lock or turn it off.


Let us know if you want something more else please accept the suggestion.

Was replacing the ignition switch and accidently broke off a silver piece off of where the switch goes connected. Can you some one tell me if this can be replaced and if I have to replace the entire key...


Replacing An Ignition Switch..

If The Ignition Switch Is Defective, It Must Be Replaced Regardless. Before Removing A Dashboard-mounted Switch, The Tumbler (Lock Mechanism) Must Be Removed From The Switch.Normally A Small Piece Of Wire Is Inserted Into A Hole IN The Front Of The Switch And The Key Is Turned.This Will Release The Tumbler From The Switch So The Tumbler Can Be Pulled Free. Then Unplug The Wires And Remove The Old Switch.

A Steering Column-mounted Ignition Switch Is Separated From The Tumbler. It Is Normally About Halfway Down And On Top Of The Steering Column. To Remove This Type Of Switch, Remove The Fasteners Holding The Steering Column To The Dash. This Will Let The Column Drop Down So You Can Replace The Ignition Switch.
