Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
In 2001 chevy silverado when trying to turn ignition key the switch tend to lock i have to playu with steering wheel and play with key trying to turn it on rapidly after five of six attempts it will eventually turn and fire up the truck. is this due to a bad ignition switch that need to be replaced or something else.
Not the igniton switch, its the ingition cylinder and or the housing. The switch is not part of what you are really turning. It's connected to it via gears. The common problem is the key gets worn out and the tumblers wear also. Eventualy they do not line up right and will not make the "bar" drop in the cylinder to allow it to turn from the off positon. If you have the title in your name and the key has never been rekeyed or the code has been changed you can go down to a dealership with all of the info for the truck and they can cut you a key from the vin number. You can try that first before you put a cylinder and housing in it.
