The ignition switch should be located at the lower part of the steering column and is actuated by the key cylinder. It is difficult to replace (made hard for thieves to get at it).

Why is the ignition key not turning to start my 2006 chevy colorado? Also the stering column will not lock when turned. this occurred suddenly after parking the vehicle. I am unable to start the ve

I assume you have kids and that's why you want to lock it and keep it secured either your kids jammed something in that ignition switch and messed something up. So I would take a good flash light and peer down into that key ignition hole and see if anything is blocked in there. if so or a bad ignition switch, you need disconnect the battery and remove the bottom dash plate from the steering wheel and you will have to disconnect the ignition cable from the ignition switch and take out the ignition by unscrewing the securing screws that hold that ignition in, best to get a mechanic book made for that make and model.

My truck will turn on a red lock and will not turn on at all, I have to wait acuple hours for it to turn on.

Welcome to PassLock 2 never-never land. I have had this problem also. 2006 Colorado. Explanation seems to be that a magnetically actuated switch in the Keyed Ignition Switch is slow to make, and the antitheft device (PassLock 2) locks everything down for 10 minutes (from owner's manual page 2-16).

Best solution for me to to SLOWLY and DELIBERATELY turn the Ignition switch from LOCK to ON, wait for 1/2 to 3/4 second, then turn the ignition switch to START.

This seems to work.Occasionally, it will still lock me out, but I can't say that I did the 1/2 to 3/4 second when it does.

As a general statement, this electrical system does behave as if it haunted.

Switch odometer from miles to kilometer

If your colorado has a drivers info center you can do it through the dash yourself. It will be in the owners manuel. If it does not have the info center you will need to take it to a dealer and it will take just a few minutes to do with their scan tool. Good Luck

How do I reset the "Oil Change Warning Indication" on colorado

if you have a owners manual read it. try coloradofans.com website and search the forums. i think johnny5846 is right if you don't have a DIC (driver info center). i believe you use the DIC(tripodometer). i don't know the sequence off hand, you can also you can change your lock settings and alarm settings, etc. with the DIC.
