You can just replace the lock cylinder. Can you get the ignition into the run position? Dash lights on? Hot wiring it is not as easy as it sounds, but replacing the lock cylinder and fixing it is fairly easy.

Trying smacking the shifter hard to the park position which it is already. There is a lock that stops the ignition from unlocking if the gear selector not getting into the P position all the way.

I have a 2003 suburban and the key wont turn when i try to start it. im pretty sure it locked up but i am not sure how to fix it


Shake the gear shifter then try. Turn the wheel HARD to the left, then try. Turn the wheel HARD to the right, then try. Depress the brake, then try. If none of that works, something in your steering column, or your ignition switch probably broke.

Car wont start when i turn the key


The first thing you need to check is whether the key has a pellet in it or "chip". If it does...the problem is most likely your key lock cylinder. Go buy a new key lock cylinder....KEEP YOUR OLD KEY. Take your new lock cylinder down to any Chevrolet dealer to find out what the VATS number is for your key....then have the dealer cut you a new key with that same VATS number...then go to your vehicle and remove the negative battery cable...this does two things...1. It resets the computer after a five minute period of no power...2.. allows you to work on the steering column without power on it.

Remove the steering wheel with the aid of repair manual.

Put the new key lock cylinder with the wire running down the steering column. Then put the steering column back together....Hook up the negative battery cable, then use your new key that was CUT and your car should start

Ingnition tumbler broke cant start


If the key won't start it; it might not be the key ignition, but rather; the ignition that has a stem that goes from the key ignition down on the steering colunm. However, you can get key ignitions for them, or buy the whole steering colum then take the key ignition out of it. But, I would suggest more information is needed before I can conclude that it is just the key ignition. Hope this help~!
