No it is actually pretty simple
1) Disconnect battery
2)Remove shroud (cover behind steering wheel)
3)insert key and turn to start position while holding it in start position there will be a small hole in top of where the ignition goes into the column an depress retainer pin and pull out igntion

your fuse box is inside , lower left kick panel , check all fuses in there , then also in the engine compartment on the firewall around the middle is a junction block with like 2 fusible links , they need to be tested , and also 1 fusible link right off the positive side of the battery , test it also , if you don't have a test light for testing , you can kinda wiggle the fusible links and feel if they are limp and stretchy , that's not a good sign , you can buy replacement fusible links or fusible link wire from local parts store , depending on how much sparking happened you may have blown the fusible links . if you don't have a test light , pick one up at the parts house and learn to use it , it will be invaluable when it comes to testing this kinda of failure . cheers .

need more info i had a 1984 chevy half ton and first, second, and third worked fine but lock up didnt work. the problem was there was no vacum at a switch under the hood on the fire wall also your shift linkage could be out of adjustment. try driving down the road and raise up a little on the shifter.

What kinda batteries do you got? Are the cables any good? Sounds to me like a power/ground issuse. Either that or you have to small of batteries to crank over a high compession enigne when it's cold, with the glow plugs, and heater grid pulling all of the power from the batteries.
And check the trans fluid level for your problem with the trans.
And you're gonna need to be a little more specific on the thunping noise.

Sounds like the ignition switch is getting hot.Check the ignition switch wires for any melted wires or hot spots.If any of the wires look burnt or melted replace switch.

How do i bypass the security on my chevrolet s10 so that it will crank


YOU CAN CRANK VECHICLE BY PUTTING KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH IN ON POSITION FOR 10 MINUTES UNTIL SECURITY LIGHT TURN ITSELF OFF.THEN TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH FOR 5 SECONDS THEN START ENGINE.YOU CANT BYPASS THE THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM BECAUSE ITS A FEATURE THAT CAME WITH TRUCK.THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM IS CONTROL BY BCM AND PCM. IF YOUR IGNITION KEYS AND SWITCH IS FAULTY ALSO THE BCM THEY ALL HAVE TO BE REPLACED AT DEALERSHIP AND REPROGRAMMED CANT BYPASS SYSTEM YOU HAVE TO GET IT FIXED.

Has no spark to plugs. chevy s10 pickup. 4 cylinder


Crank sensor or Ignition module. A part store should be able to test the module. If you have no way to test them, the crank sensor is cheaper.

Engine turns over but will not start


Hi there yep the switches are basically in the same location.Try the next time this happens to bump on the steering wheel while cranking or pushing in on the steering wheel towards the windshield if it starts right up you'll know for sure that its the switch or its out of ajustment.
