SOURCE: I cant get the key
I cant get the key out or lock steering column and the automatic transmission shift lever locks up in park.
Now if I take the battery off every thing works fine.
This sure seems like a reset problem.I run the car by not having it in the locked column position and get the shifter to work by putting a key in the hole furnished
by chevy to bypass shift lock. thank you

It may be the 'actuator'. It is a rod that connects the lock cylinder to the ignition switch on the tilt wheel units. It is made of aluminum and often breaks as things become worn.

Yes you can repair it your self, check under the dash where the trans cable hooks to the shift lever, where the eye of the cable hooks on there are two screws, if these are loose the truck will still shift but the free play makes slack and the cable will not move all the way. If this piece is not loose you will have to lower the steering column and check this shaft, they are know to split in two and with the column down they are easy to change.
