Question about GMC 1995-1997 Yukon Ignition Starter Alarm Switch

Igniton switch removal from a 1997 GMC Jimmy

I have removed the kick panels and the shroud around the steering column. The only problem that i am having is that the last two screws holding the switch in, look like you will need a femal torx bit to remove them. If this is so where could i find them? I have tried lowes,sears, and all of the major auto parts dealers. Even the dealerships could not help me!

You can use a very small socket on those... I have done it several times, I believe it needs to be a 4.5 -6mm socket... I know this works. Just take a handful of your small sockets and try them one by one to see which one fits and grabs it.

How to replace ignition lock cylinder with no key for 1997 chevy 1500 truck


mangle it out of there delicately as to not mess up the column, and or key reader if applicable,
if there is a chip in the key, remove the steering wheel and then the reader first
yours may have a small screw type bolt or long set screw that you remove right there also and the lock cylinder just slides out
there are special tools used to remove the retaining clip from the steering shaft that holds the steering locking plate since it is all spring loaded,

How do i make the igniton key turn when it is stuck


Since this is an older vehicle may I assume that the key is worn? Compare the key to other keys you have; what started out as sharp points on the key would look rounded now. Use a spare key. If the spare key does not have a chip/transponder then hold the body of worn key next to the steering column while you try the spare key. Sorry if I am off track but that seems to me the most likely situation and it might help you or someone else reading this. If you have the actual, original GM key with a serial number on it the dealer might be able to make you a fresh key.

When i put it into park it dont ingage and i hve to start in n


Check the neutral switch on the steering column. Sounds like the neutral switch is bad. It is located on the steering column inside and by the floor mat. There is usually two screws that mount it and a wire harness to unplug. Just be sure and don't move the gear selector while changing the switch.

02 courier immobiliser wont let van start what will i do can i bypass this


Apparently, this is the type of bypass where you have to cut a wire at the immobilizer plug at the ignition switch, usually the PATS ignition wire. If the immobilizer is malfunctioning and you cannot start your vehicle, even with the key, You will have to remove the steering column shroud and /or dash and reconnect the wire that was cut.

How do I disconnect the alarm system


AN EASIER WAY TO DISARM THE ALARM IS TO FIND A SWITCH MOUNTED USUALLY UNDER STEERING COLUMN OR DRIVERS KICK PANEL.

JUST TURN KEY ON
THEN FLIP THE SWITCH.
IF ITS A PUSH BUTTON THEN JUST HOLD DOWN FOR SEVERAL SECONDS AFTER YOU TURN THE KEY ON.

REMOVING THE BRAIN IS EASY.
LAY ON YOUR BACK ON DRIVERS FLOOR AND REMOVE ANY PANELING IF IN THE WAY AND FIND SMALL BLACK BOX ABOUT 4" X 4" X 1.5" MOUNTED WITH ZIP TIES. JUST UNPLUG AND TAPE OFF THE PLUG.
