Asked by Nov 05, 2014 at 11:28 AM about the 1989 GMC Sierra 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a GMC 1500 Sierra 1989.  When I went to turn my truck off the ignition is stuck it will not turn, but the truck is still running.  I can take my key out but the truck will stay running. What is the problem? I called a locksmith and they said it was something in the steering column.

1 Answer


it is the mechanical part of your ignition switch in the column. not hard to replace. vids on youtube can help. you will end up with a new set of keys, and your new keys wont work in the door. you will have to keep an old one for the door and have 2 keys on your ring, just like the old days.
