Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

I changed the heater core in our 99 Blazer (S-10) and after getting the dash back in, I put the key in and turned it back to "Accessory" to turn the radio on - that worked (although thinking back, something felt odd when it turned, I think), but now the key is stuck in the Acc position - cannot remove nor turn it forward. I think the column shifter *may* be in the "Reverse" position, in which case it shouldn't have turned back (??), but now it's just plain stuck. I've removed the shift linkage and the shift interlock cable from the shifter - no luck. I suspect that it's an issue with the tumblers, but looking for any ideas, as it will be difficult to remove the ignition switch with the key in and jammed in that position. Any ideas much appreciated, thanks!

Try and spray some lubricant into the tumblers. Did you try moving the steering wheel left or right while turning your key? Sometimes pressure of the wheel can make your ignition stick as well..
Hope I was of some help to you.

I makes no difference if the key is in the switch (stuck or not) when removing the switch. The process is the same. Once removed you may want to take the lock to a local locksmith and have them check it. It may be much cheaper to service the lock than replace it. Also if you do opt for a new lock take it to the locksmith and have it keyed to your old key so you don;t have to carry two keys (one for the ignition & one for the doors).

How do I take out replace the heater coil in my S-10 Chevy truck?


No you do not, I think you mean the heater core, because its leaking, first unhook heaters hoses under hood (there may be a clamp on the core tubes that has to come off), next go under dash on passengers side, take the one bolt to the far right under dash by the dome light, thats so you can pull the dash out just enought to get the cover off the front of the heater box, behind that cover is the heater core, now that cover is held on with about 6 1/4 inch screws give or take 1 or 2 when you get the cover off you will see 2 straps, one on each end that hold the core in place, there are 2 1/4 screws in each one, remove them and core will come out. Put back together in reverse order.

Why wont my 99 chevy blazer temperature warm up?


You may have vapour lock in your heater lines. Start engine, put heat lever on high, disconnect one of the lines on your heater core, the one on the flow out side, & see if you have any air coming out. Once antifreese comes out stick line back on & retighten clamp. Make sure your cooling system is topped off. Also your water pump may not be functionihg to it's maximum. Take rad cap off cold & view flow rate. If inadequate you may have to replace the water pump. Good luck!
