No sir,
There is no require to reprogram any thing. cause you are replacing only mechanical part not any electrical part, if replacing any part that have sensor or any wire then only need a reprogram. don't worry i have experience of same you can replace that. thanks

I lost my only key to my 2000 gmc jimmy does this require a chip or is it just a regular key

No your vehicle doesn't have a chip key . You can just replace the key and lock cylinder . Without a key to copy ! Or the dealer can cut a key using the Vin #

The Passlock™ sensor is separate from the key and lock cylinder. The key and the lock cylinder work together in order to determine if the proper ignition key was used to start the vehicle.
The theft deterrent system has been incorporated into the body control module (BCM). The theft deterrent is provided in order to prevent the vehicle operation if the correct key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The ignition key turns the lock cylinder. The cylinder rotation produces an analog voltage code in the passlock™ sensor. This voltage code is received by the BCM. The BCM compares the voltage code to the previousely learned voltage code. If the codes match, a class 2 message is sent from the BCM to the vehicle control module (VCM)/powertrain control module (PCM). The message enables the fuel injectors.

Fuel guage goes to empty as i turn key to start engine 2001 gmc jimmy no start

Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch, not the lock cylinder but the switch itself. Electrical power should continue to go to the gauges and to the ignition module even with the key in the Start position.

Where do i find tdm on 2001 gmc jimmy?

The 200 Jimmy key is not a chipped key, but instead a transponder key. This key works with the security system by transmitting a signal that is read by the Lock Cylinder in the ignition. Without this signal the truck will refuse to crank over, or instead start for 5 seconds or less and then shut down. If your security light is on, the antitheft system is 100% the problem. You can either find which parts is failing and replace it correctly, (Key-Ignition/lock cylinder-or TDM) or bypass it.

The battery died in my jimmy and the key locked in, not knowing that it would do this i tried to force it back to get the key out. after charging the battery i got the key out now when i put the key in in...

The key being stuck is a physical problem and not a result of the battery going dead, [ but may be the other way arround ]. You can try to lube the lock cylinder with a quick shot of WD40 to get it operating , but chances are that it will have to be replaced anyway.

Pull the steering wheel alittle hard til you can feel it move from stop to stop. Hold it in the center of that little bit of feeplay and then turn the key. It should unlock the wheel.

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy which needs the ignition lock cylinder replaced. Unfortunately, someone tried to steal it at one point and jammed a screwdriver into the cylinder. The key still goes in the...

You can drill it out. I have had to do this on 2 occassions. First...pull the cowel off around the steering wheel. Get a good light and look closely...some of the screws in the plastic can really hide on you. With cowel removed....look for and opening (small hole) where a little pin sits. Grab a very small screwdriver or pick and push down on that pin while you wiggle the key and try to turn it to the "on" are supposed to put it in the "on" position in order to push the pin in and pull out the cylinder, but you may have some luck seeing as though the tumblers are broke inside. If this doesn't may be drilling it out. Check with dealer too. If you have a plastic top on you key...and a security light and your car....a NAPA or Auto Zone part is not gonna work. You need to buy a key lock and cylinder assembly from the dealer and follow the key up procedure to reprogram the new key to the BCM. when you get a little further into getting it out...I can walk you through getting it in

2000 Jimmy , put in park , turn off key & key wont come out of ignition.

Does the transmission work in all 4 gears? I've seen bad ignition switches cause this. Not the ignition lock cylinder, the electrical switch.
