What years of 1999 Chevy Cavalier are compatible with ignition cylinder. Looking for any compatible years or models??


1995 to 2001 Cavalier & Pontiac Sunfire ignition lock cylinders are the same. Be advised that your car has an anti theft system. If you plan on installing a used cylinder from another car, you will need to have the replacement cylinder "coded" to your original key OR have a key with the same resistor value as your original key, cut for the replacement cylinder [new or used] Without doing this, the car will not start.

I have had trouble starting my Chevy blazer 2001, before it would feel like the ignition would get stuck, now the key won't turn either way and the steering wheel is locked and I can't turn it on


Try turning the steering wheel hard in each direction while trying to turn key. Wheel lock may be holding key. If not, sounds like you need to replace ignition lock cylinder or the ignition switch. Good luck, DW

You can remove the housing to expose the switch and see if the lock pin has a problem but I would simply replace the switch. Get the complete switch NOT just the tumbler replacement. Also if you want to use your original key (which opens everything else) have the new lock keyed by a locksmith before you install it. Otherwise you will have to carry two keys from that point on.

Question:
Did you replace the ignition switch or the KEY AND CYLINDER?

These are the only 2 things that can make your engine turn off when you release the ignition switch after starting the engine.

I hope this helps you.
