Question about bravada tumbler. door lock cylinder. ignition switch. rear

2 Answers

What do I need to replace on GM Bravada 2001 ignition to get a new key so thief who stole my keys can't steal my SUV? I have a blank key but nothing else now, he stole both copies of the SUV Keys after breaking into our house. The SUV is garaged so he can't easily drive away. But I just need to change the ignition to a new key, then I guess I'll worry about the doors later. Thanks

    Just need to know the name of part or parts -- can I buy a whole new ignition cylinder (sic) with a whole new key already made with it?

A dealer will want a small fortune to do this if u can't do it yourself find a friend to do it , to change your switch is not really hard if you. Are mechanically inclined , look on YouTube to get an idea of how it is done you do not really need special tools just a Phillips screwdriver and a star set of screwdriver types and a socket to take off steering wheel and air bag , anytime you do work around air bags always disconnect the battery and always the negative side ,

Take it to a dealer and get a replacement tumbler fitted in the ignition lock. They will provide new keys and code them to your car.

I have problem with my toyota hiace 2009 . Won't start. Needs immobiliser code unlock ?

Hi, Go to Toyota and get a new key made. The key that you have does't work anymore. It's because there is a chip in the keys that helps to start the car. Call it a thief deterant device, thats good for you that nobody can steal your car. I have one in my keys too. It's standard in all car and trucks now. good luck

98 Chevy crew cab diesel, need to tap box near key ignition to start, is there a sensor in steering colummmn

GM uses an on-board anti-theft system. It is located inside the steering column. It is tamper proof. If a thief shocks the ignition key cylinder then it will enable the the " No Start" program. Also if the ignition key cylinder assembly get loose and worn. The Security system will start to malfunction. Call your local GM/Chevy Dealer for price and availability for a new unit or let them fix it. Let me know if that helps, good luck.

My 1998 Olds Bravada has the key stuck in the ignition. I paid to have a new ignition key cylinder put in, but the new one does the same thing. The key will start the car etc. but won't come out of...

I know in the newer versions of the Bravada, Trailblazers, Envoys, the ignition switch itself is always the culprit. Not the switch the key goes in, but it's located under the steering wheel column. I know how to replace the newer ones but not yours. That's the first place I'd look.

On a 2000 olds Bravada the key wont turn off all the way

you need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly, the swtch may be secured with what you call shear bolts which may have to be drilled out, only you can decide if you are capable of doin this, new bolts should be supplied with the new swith, when you retighten the bolts, the heads will shear off when they are tight enough, the aim of these are to prevent theives making a quick ignition change to steal your car

After replacing the gear shift cable on my Oldsmobile Bravada the key will not come all the way back to the lock position and the battery light stays on.

im not sure what linkage you replaced cause it is electronic. if key is stuck in acc. posision the problem is the ignition switch. the reason i say this is cause when you turn the key it elec. releases the shifter and when the switch gos bad it does not. a new ignition switch should be purchaced from a gm dealer.until fixed you will have to disconnect batt. every time until fixed and i would also use the park brake when not driving.
