Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

98 chevy k1500 my keys touched a hot wire inside the steering colum while starting, sparked and key got hot while pulling it out as fast as i could. Now blower ,radio,and wipers don't work. All fuses are good,not sure about the relays. I dont think one relay would go to those. Cheked wires that go into key cylinder, they appear ok but do you think if burnt on inside it would only effect those 3 items? This is a tough on for me to diagnose please help, thank you. Joel

Sounds like your ignition switch is shorted, best way to check is by removing and looking for burnt signs or smell.

SOURCE: blower control switch

I had this same problem and it turned out to be a simple fix,my problem was the hot wire contact on the blower itself.Fix was cleaning the contact w/sandpaper and replacing the part on the hot wire that connects to it.

there's a button on the right side of the steering wheel that says serv push that button. It's put right there for when they use them as police cars you can cut the headlights off. You will probably notice that dash lights are on.

SOURCE: 1995 Chevy k1500 heater problems.

For a 95 Chevy Silverado....I replaced the Blend Door Actuator on the passenger side. Just behind the slide out cup holder. Yo ucan acces easily by removing the ash tray piece and the glove box....Or just the glove box and work like hell to get a socket in a tight place.

There are 2 actuators....one controlling the (Mode and Temp 89018681) and the other the (Air Inlet 89018367). I called the dealer and the parts were 85-125. I got it From TBA Auto (local store) for 39.00. A 20 min job at most.

My 2005 buick rendezvous has been attempted to be stolen cant start it with key


if they tried to pull the wheel lock located in the steering colum. they may have damaged the key sensor that read you security codes off the key. which means you`ll need to replace the key sensor in the colum. Unless they pulled a wire off under the steering colum. look down the steering colum and up underneath and see if there are any plugs out. PS some cars are designed of extra accessories which case you may find a few plugs away from the colum that aren`t connected to any thing these won`t be the issue but.

Need to rpl ignition lock 98 GMC K1500 PU


Most ignitions you will need to remove the plastic shroud around the steering colum. Have a good look at the complete barel & mount & you should find a small hole. When the key is in a certain position (usualy accessories) there is a little pin in that hole. You push the pin in with small allenkey, jewler screwdriver etc... & the barel will just slide out.

1999 ford explorer want shut off when key is turned off and is taken of key cylinder


there is a rod or rack inside the steering column that pulls back on the ignition switch. the ignition switch is bad or the rod is bent from tilt steering if the wheel is slammed up. on the otherhand the switch may be right inside the colum attatched to the ignition tumbler> either way it is an ignition swithc problem.

On my org. steering colum the blue wire that runs frome the shaft of the colum onto the white sircet panel. so i replaced the whole colum and now starting disable. 98 deville. what should i do?


If you are using the key and switch that was in replacement column, the resistance of the key pellet for your car is wrong. Provided you connected everything up then the easiest way would be to take your old key (out of old part) and the key from your replacement column to a Cadillac dealer. They can read the resistance of your old key and cut you a new key with the proper resistor. That should start your car.

1994 chevy k1500 4x4. won't even turn over. replaced starter, battery is fully charged. if i bypass the key switch and use a screw driver on the starter the starter works fine. is there an ignition relay...


Check the neutral safety switch, your vehicle should have it mounted on the steering colum. A purple wire runs to this switch from the starter and a yellow wire runs from the neutral switch to your ignition.
