2002 chev surburban switch won,t turn


If the ignition switch is jammed, and you cannot free it by moving the steering wheel back and forth while trying the ignition switch, simply replace the ignition switch tumbler and lock assembly with a new one. Before going to the trouble of replacing the entire ignition switch, try squiring a moderate amount of WD-40 or other light penetrating oil into the ignition switch key hole, let it sit overnight, then try again the next morning. Often, that will clear the issue.

How do I replace the ignition switch. Key in place, will not turn back to the off positiom, stuck in run. 1993 Chev Silvarado


It is held in with a bolt. You need to remove the steering wheel, lock plate, and turn signal switch to gain access. You will need special puller for the steering wheel and a special tool for removing the lock plate.

How do you replace the ignition cylinder on a 1998 grand cherokee


Try these steps...

Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing or unclipping them.
Step 2 Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft.
Step3 Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheel and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column.
Step4 Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out.
Step5 Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder.
Step 6 Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

Thanks
