    more or less yes a complete new lock is the only answer ,it may be possible to repair something but how long will it last ,i mean this vehicle is showing as 23 yrs old so things are bound to wear out ,it was no doubt designed to have a life of ten years anyway so its done you proud hasnt it

My son says his truck won't start with the key but will when hotwired. Possible problems?


if it wont start with the key only when hotwired my idea would go in the direction of the ignition barrel
hotwired start means its not the fuel pump because it runs
its possible the barrel isnt making the connection at the start position

Key turns to "start" position. Nothing happens, key doesn't spring back to "run".


Sounds like the link between the lock cylinder and the switch is broke.

I bought a 1986 corvette with no key and the steering column is taken apart. I cant get it to start.


That is because the anti theft security system is not working correctly. You won't be able to just jump the wires or hotwire it. Go to this link, you'll find what you need. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I WAS INSTALLING A RADIO AND TOUCHED A HOTWIRE THAT WAS RUNNING TO MY FUSE PANEL, ATTACHED TO THE FUEL PUMP FUSE. MY TRUCK SHUT OFF. NOW IT WILL NOT MAKE A SOUND AND WON'T START. ALL OF THE LIGHTS WILL...


Check your fusible links (wires that act like a fuse). The fusible links are located on the battery post on the starter, and some are located on the positive battery cable.

Vehicle will not start


try having someone turn the key to the start position while you tap on the starter it may be jammed or you might check for misallignment of the starter and make sure it is wired right.
