Check the battery connections.Also check the battery connection to the starter.If any of the connection is loose the car will start but it will create problem to stop the car.Another possibility is short in the battery terminals.Check out that battery terminals are properly connected to their respective places and not else where or getting it contact with any other live wire or metal surface. If all checks out ok then check the voltage at ignition switch.If the voltage is less then 12 volt then the ignition switch is getting short.The ignition switch and its connections to the ignition coils to spark plugs needs to be checked. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Kinda hard to follow what you are trying to say, but it sounds like you might need a starter? maybe, or possibly cables if yours are old and corroded.

Ignition fuses, ground wire, and make sure that the cables are hooked up right. Also check for bare wires if the ignition fuses are blown there is probably a short somewhere.

Disconnect batter ground cable. Remove the upper and lower steering column shrouds. Remove lock screw and disconnect ignition switch electrical connector.

79 chevy k10 starter problems

Fusible Links

The engine compartment wiring harness has several fusible links. The same size wire with a special hypalon insulation must be used when replacing a fusible link.
The links are located in the following areas:
  1. A molded splice at the starter solenoid Bat terminal, a 14 gauge red wire.
  2. A 16 gauge red fusible link at the junction block to protect the unfused wiring of 12 gauge or larger wire. This link stops at the bulkhead connector.
  3. The alternator warning light and field circuitry is protected by a 20 gauge red wire fusible link used in the battery feed to voltage regular #3 terminal. The link is installed as a molded splice in the circuit at the junction block.
  4. The ammeter circuit is protected by two 20 gauge fusible links installed as molded splices in the circuit at the junction block and battery to starter circuit.
Other things it MIGHT be are the ignition switch, located on top of the steering column:

The other thing it MIGHT be is a faulty ignition cylinder (where your key goes into to start the K10).

Check the wire harness on the steering column also.

1985 chevy k10 no power when i turn the key

Try adjusting the switch on the column. They have slots in them where the bolts go in so you can adjust them by sliding it up or down the column. Pull on the switch where the rod goes in and see if you get anything. Let me know what happens.

1993 Land Rover stops running on when on rough roads,

I had the same problem with my 1993 range rover. It turned out to be the ignition switch. after thousands of times inserting the key, over the years this process slowly pushes the back side of the switch away from the ignition switch housing. This consists of a plastic disk which holds the mechanical stop that keeps the ignition in the run position. If the disk is not secure and tight against the ignition housing the hold mechanism will not work properly. Mine would start and run however the first time i hit a bump the ignition switch would turn its self to the acc. position and the vehicle would stop running. I found the solution on He was very clever in his way of a permanent repair. He opened up the steering column and used tie wraps to hold the plastic disk secure against the end of the ignition switch. Thus no more automatic ignition turn offs.
