    Thanks, when I went to pick and pull to get some practice on there trucks some did have the lock plate removed already and turn signal yet I could not see anything else (screw) holding the cylinder in place on any of the trucks, guess I will go back and check. my personal truck is in the paint shop and they have got the cylinder lock stuck. they want to hire a locksmith but could imaging the cost. Thanks

    it is pritty eazey to replace, you will need to remove the steering wheel, then there is a lock plate under the wheel, you will need a lock plate compresion tool ( you can barrow one from auto zone ) to remove the lock plate, after the lock plate is removed there will be one phillips screw that atches the turn signal lever to the turn signal switch and 3 phillips screws that hold the turn signal switch into the collum, remove them and lift the switch out, you will not be able to take it completly out of the collum , but it will come up enough to get to the screw that holds the key lock cylinder, remove the 1 screw that holds the cylinder in the collum, and slide the cylinder out of the collum.

    yes it might be a 1/4 or 5/16 head screw, when you get this old it could have been either depending on witch plant the collum was built in. once you remove the turn signal switch there is only one screw under it.

    just got to thinking some of the very early cullom locks did not have a screw you had to turn the key to the exseory position and then there was a hole that you had to push a pick into and push down on the lock cylinder, the hole was in the same place that the screw would have been.

Chipped ignition ? Key's on your car do not have transponder chip . Replacing Keys
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed.

In my son's 1975 Chevy truck, the ignition switch


Hi Willy, It may be a problem of a worn key, but on that age of vehicle it's more likely to be a worn ignition barrel. Try and have the key replaced first and it that fails, be ready to replace the barrel and key. Happy new year and Regards John

I Have #5 cylinder misfiring. At least this is the Code. Is there an easy fix?


A code P0305 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

Faulty spark plug or wire
Faulty coil (pack)
Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
Faulty fuel injector
Burned exhaust valve
Faulty catalytic converter(s)
Running out of fuel
Poor compression
Defective computer

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

How do you change a key switch in a 2001 chevy impala, the factory keys wont turn in the switch


If your key is worn try getting a new one cut.
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.
If you are unable to operate the ignition cylinder with a new key then you will probably need to replace the cylinder and switch.Replacement of the switch involves reprogramming
The system may be programmed with or without a scan tool.
There is a way to get the cylinder out without replacing the switch but this procedure should be performed by a qualified GM technician as it involves removal of the switch and some precise drilling.
